EducationPlus will host its annual Midwest Education Technology Community (METC) Conference February 11-13, 2019 at the St. Charles Convention Center.  Known as this region’s premier edtech event, #METC19 is predicted to gather over 2,000 educational leaders, teachers, and students from the midwest and beyond. Our audience includes superintendents, principals, preK-12 teachers, administrators, higher ed, support staff and many others.   

Our 36th annual METC Conference will feature regional and national experts who introduce participants to the latest trends and best practices in the area of educational technology. In addition, attendees have the opportunity to see examples of student-created work, network and learn from colleagues, attend hands-on workshops, and discover new and innovative ways to approach teaching and learning through the use of technology. It is estimated that over 400,000 students are impacted by this event each year, as teachers across all major disciplines return to classrooms and integrate new practices in education technology to deepen student learning.  


The annual METC Conference offers business partners a unique and exciting platform to network with colleagues, connect with existing and potential clients, and promote innovative products and services.   

  • Does your business represent cutting edge products or services designed to enhance the field of education? 
  • Are you interested in connecting directly with your target audience and marketing in front of thousands? 
  • Perhaps you simply wish to align your business with one of the leading education-technology conferences in the region designed to enhance teaching and learning in today’s classrooms. 


There are a variety of ways for businesses and organizations to get involved in METC, the educational technology program of EducationPlus. Whether through sponsorship, in-kind donations, hosting a booth or simply attending the conference, the Midwest Education Technology Community Conference is a great opportunity to gain business exposure among a mass, target audience.
