#1 Location, location, location.
This year’s event will take place in Nashville, Tennessee, best known for Nashville, country music and the Grand Ole Opry. So, come and discover Nashville 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 2018 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 interests focused on distance learning in all 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.
