Networking Details

Ellucian Live 2018 brings together approximately 8,000 attendees from 1,300 higher education institutions—all united by a belief in the power of education to change lives. One of the greatest benefits you will experience at Ellucian Live 2018 is the opportunity to interact with this global community. We’ve created a variety of opportunities for you to connect with your peers to share your passion for higher education.

Here are a few ways to prepare for the amazing networking opportunities at Ellucian Live 2018:

  • Bring business cards—lots of them—to exchange with the people you meet.
  • Ask questions—especially of those who have attended the conference before.
  • Explore the Exhibit Hall for the latest and greatest solutions from Ellucian partners.
  • Visit the Ellucian Action Line Center and meet your Ellucian Action Line Center representatives in person (even if you don’t have a current problem that needs their attention). It’s always good to put a face with a name for more open and effective communication in the future.
  • Participate in user group meetings during lunch on Wednesday.
  • Share your passion with us.

The contacts you make at the conference are a powerful source of information for current and future interaction. We look forward to meeting you in April.
