The 2020 Future of Education Technology® Conference has kicked off this week, running from January 14-17 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami.

For 40 years, FETC® has gathered the most dynamic and creative education professionals from around the world for an intensive, highly collaborative exploration of new technologies, best practices and pressing issues. Its impact has been felt by thousands of districts, schools, educators—and, ultimately, students.

Each year, FETC® is tailored to the needs of an increasingly technology-driven education community—and 2020 will be no exception. The 40th year of FETC® features over 600 learning opportunities, three inspiring keynotes, an Expo Hall featuring over 450 leading companies, 50 new product announcements, and a community of thousands of educators.

2020 keynotes feature bestselling author Daniel Pink, leading STEM educator Justin Shaifer, and a team of visionary ed tech leaders—Hall Davidson, Kathy Schrock, Leslie Fisher and Adam Bellow—who will be co-presenting during the attendee-favorite TechSHARE Live! session, back for 2020 by popular demand.

The four days of over 600 workshops, sessions and learning opportunities are organized into six distinct program tracks, tailored to the needs and interests of educators, ed tech coaches, administrators, library media specialists and more. 

The Expo Hall includes over 450 leading companies, with some 50 new product announcements being made this year at the conference. The Expo Hall offers the opportunity to get up close and hands-on with today’s most innovative technologies and applications, view live demonstrations, and meet face to face with leading ed tech vendors. The Expo Hall also features a Startup Pavilion, learning labs, STEM theater presentations, and a unique Pitchfest competition highlighting the next generation of cutting-edge technologies. 

The 2020 Expo Hall will also include an Esports Gaming Arena, demonstrating live gaming competition and offering the opportunity to learn more about how to build and sustain an esports program that will engage students, build school culture, and promote career and college readiness.

For any educators in the Miami area, Expo Only passes are free, and Expo Only Plus passes are just $60. Use Source Code FETCEXPO.
