The Higher Education Web Professionals Association hosts its Annual Conference in the fall of each year. It is a well-attended event featuring a wide range of presentations that attract higher education digital professionals from a broad variety of organizations and disciplines.

In 2020, the HighEdWeb Annual Conference was held online. The conference offered 30+ presentations, lightning talks, digital poster presentations, and welcomed about 2000 web and digital communication professionals from around the world.

This year, after very careful consideration of the available data – including results from the recent HighEdWeb members’ survey on travel and professional development plans, updates from experts regarding the COVID-19 pandemic’s likely trajectory, and Association budget and resource needs, the decision has been made to once again gathering fully online.

HighEdWeb 2021 (#HEWeb21) will bring together content marketers and developers, designers and managers, programmers and writers — along with other professionals from across the web and digital communication disciplines — this Oct. 4-5 online. With three tracks of presentations, one outstanding keynote, and interactive digital events, we know this will be another stellar HighEdWeb experience.

If you would like to claim one of these packages, have questions, or would like to discuss a customized option, please contact us at sponsors@highedweb.org.
