    HighEdWeb is an excellent conference for both web professionals new to higher education and seasoned veterans. The conference’s highlight is the ability to connect with others who face the same struggles as you may–from implementing a CMS to developing your web team–and often they will also have advice on how to overcome these problems.

    Additionally, there are a number of topics at HighEdWeb to keep one interested: developing leadership abilities, programming skills or promoting your brand via social media.

    The conference team also works hard to provide nightly activities that provide ample opportunities for socializing. Be prepared to push away any urge to return back to your hotel room, and get out and experience all this conference has to offer!

  2. Last October was my first time attending HighEdWeb. It was in Buffalo, NY, and wow, the webbies painted the town! Not only is it a chance to spend time with an incredible group of professionals who are extremely intelligent, dedicated, and eager to share knowledge, but you can feel the spirit of camaraderie the minute you arrive and it only grows throughout the event – across presentations, keynoters, lunch lines, the Twitter backchannel, hallway conversations, night life, and the infamous all-night Hackathon where everyone from content folks to coders come together to create for a cause.
    I wouldn’t miss it for anything!

  3. I have attended the last two HighEdWeb conferences; my first one was as a newbie to both a digital services team and the higher education industry. I found both years to be extremely helpful in helping to understand the broad spectrum of what higher education web professional do. My job focuses on content, and I found the content tracks useful, but also enjoyed checking out some of the more technical and management track workshops to start building connections and understanding what my colleagues across the university do.

    Additionally, I presented a poster the second year, and was able to have really great conversations with folks from a wide range of schools. Not only could I share what we have learned in our own office, but was able to learn from people facing similar challenges and addressing them in different ways.

    I highly recommend this conference, and it’s filled with great people!
