2016 Conference

Get social at HighEdWeb 16

It’s not a HighEdWeb conference without some entertaining evenings to complement the excellent educational sessions. HighEdWeb 2016’s feature events include:

PyramidArenaHighEdWeb Welcome Reception: Sunday, Oct. 16
HighEdWeb 2016’s opening hook plays at the famous Memphis Pyramid, also home to a mega-Bass Pro store. Enjoy billiards, bowling, games, music and time to connect with friends new and old. You also can soar 28 stories to the top of the Pyramid and enjoy appetizers and soak in the Home of the Blues from a steampunk-themed glass observation deck.

HighEdWeb After Dark!: Monday, Oct. 17
Yes, it deserves an exclamation point, because it’s a great time to play! You can first explore Memphis as you enjoy dinner on your own, then return to the Sheraton Memphis Downtown for dessert, coffee, cash bar and games on the veranda.

Autozone Exterior SignHighEdWeb Big Social Event: Tuesday, Oct. 18
We take you out to the ballgame, as our merry band celebrates our last night in Memphis by taking over the local ballpark, AutoZone Park! Enjoy this downtown gem with ballpark food (peanuts! popcorn! hot dogs!), live soul and blues music (Brown Soul Shoes), games (batting cages and a corn hole tournament, anybody?) and some classic Americana surprises at every measure.

One more great reason to register for HighEdWeb, Oct. 16 to 19 in Memphis. Early bird pricing ends July 31, so get tuned up for some awesome days and nights.
