Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between Higher Ed Summit and Higher Ed Summit Horizons?
Higher Ed Summit Horizons is a regional event born out of Higher Ed Summit in the US which has grown to be the technology and innovation event of the year for higher ed global trailblazers. Building on this momentum and reacting to the response of our international community, we want to expand this event to serve our international trailblazers on their own soil. We are excited for this opportunity to broaden our Horizons together!
Will the Higher Ed Summit in the US still happen?
Yes, of course! The Higher Ed Summit in the US will continue to thrive each and every year with a multi-day programme for our global community of new users to advanced institutions who have adopted the connected campus. Next year’s event will be in San Diego, California in Spring 2019.
