Update: Keeping Up with Changes
TCEA has made the difficult decision to take the 2021 TCEA Convention & Exposition fully virtual. After careful consideration with TCEA’s partners at the City of Dallas and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, it is clear that ongoing COVID-19 safety measures require us to find new ways to deliver the powerful insights and connections you expect from this event.
The live experience will begin February 1-6, 2021 with more customizable ways to learn throughout the month. Self-paced content will be available through March 5, 2021, and you’ll receive access to IDEAcon February 22-24 with live content between both engaging experiences.
Original post, Sep. 24, 2020: Since 1980, TCEA’s annual Convention & Exposition has been a trusted source for the latest in all things education and ed tech. In 2021, our innovative hybrid registration options, new partnerships, and timely topics from extraordinary educators give you even more ways to expand your professional learning network, get to know the latest technologies, and share your unique perspective — wherever you are.
Registration for the 2021 TCEA Convention & Exposition, February 1–6, 2021 in Dallas, Texas and online, opens at 9:00 a.m. Central on September 24, 2020. Explore what we have planned and secure your place at this world-class event. Early Bird pricing goes away soon, so register today!
