#1 Location, location, location.
This year’s event will take place in Indianapolis, Indiana, a city known as the “Crossroads of America” more Interstate highways bisect this city than any other city in the country, making it an exciting and easy to access destination. So come and discover Indianapolis with your distance learning friends!
#2 Unmatched value.
I don’t know about you, but I go to a lot of conferences touching on education and training. Well, this conference is different. We’re the U.S. Distance Learning Association and here you have the entire spectrum of DL professionals learning from and sharing with each other. Amazing things happen when you can learn from a community that is broader than your own. You won’t find an event that offers this much content: stellar keynotes,
first-rate presenters, an amazing array of distance learning exhibitors and the best of the best, the winners of the prestigious USDLA Awards.
Take a look at the 2017 WINNERS!
#3 Network and connect.
At our conference, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with professionals spread across the country and around the world. We are a passionate community of interest focused on distance learning in all of its forms. We work in K-20 education, corporate and government training and telemedicine. You’ll return home equipped with new plans, tips and tools to make a difference in your organization.
#4 Thirtysome years in distance learning.
One of the things that makes USDLA helpful and attractive to me is perspective. Regardless of the constituency I’m engaged with and the media I use, I find I learn amazing lessons from those in other distance learning fields.
#5 Value for the money.
With a 4-day intensive conference schedule you will access strategic knowledge and expertise that’s worth its weight in gold from an impressive array of recognized professionals.
