METC19 Conference

NEW this year! We are expanding our conference to three full days, with more choices for our attendees to personalize their experience. You will be able to Build Your Own Conference (BYOC) with several types of sessions to add-on for extended learning. Choose to attend one, two or all three days! Choose to add on a hands-on workshop for a deeper-dive in a specific topic or tool or a Specialty Luncheon with a Featured Speaker and a hot buffet. 

BYOC Example: ISTE Certification will be offered as a 3-day conference registration with certification training on Monday & Wednesday of the conference, and Tuesday will be available for attending the Keynote, a Specialty Luncheon, Exhibit Hall, SHOWcase, and Poster or Breakout Sessions.

Our staff is currently planning and coordinating with sponsors and interested companies to develop this new personalized experience. We will add other learning experiences for attendees throughout the next months like certifications, micro-badging, and more. METC U will be finalized by October, so all attendees will have an opportunity to review before they register.

Workshop - 1 Hour & 50 Minutes
