Apple, Adobe join College Board, to Support International Conference and Expo

TechEd 2007 Experiencing Tremendous Growth

Sacramento, CA – TechEd Events, a division of The Community College Foundation (TCCF), predicts a benchmark year for TechEd 2007, the 12th Annual Technology in Education Conference and Tech Exposition being held in the state-of-the-art Ontario Conference Center in sunny Southern California, March 25 – 28, 2007.

“Since 911, with budget cuts at all levels, conferences like TechEd simply were not a priority,” says William Neece, conference director and vice president of TCCF. “But the recent trend of increased emphasis on education technology has significantly improved the ability for campuses to embrace professional development at TechEd.”

TechEd was founded originally to support the Community College system. Over the years the TechEd Advisory Committee has broadened the reach of the event to include all levels of education from K through 20.

“It is our mission, and my personal passion, to disseminate the most effective uses of technology in education,” says William. “TechEd achieves that by bringing together technology leaders and educators from across the country and around the world to share ideas and best practice solutions.”

For 12 years, TechEd has been achieving its mission by providing a hands-on, innovative environment for professionals to learn about the issues facing the future of education with a combination of extraordinary interactive workshops and exciting technology exhibits.

“We are most proud of our hosts and sponsors,” adds William. “Riverside Unified School District, Chaffey College and DeVry University are truly TechEd Champions as our official hosts for TechEd 2007.”

And the list of sponsors are impressive as well – College Board, AMX, Apple, Adobe, ETS, Peopleware, Podango and Tool Factory, just to name a few of the education technology leaders joining the hundreds of exhibitors on a 70,000 sq ft state-of-the-art exhibit hall at the Ontario Convention Center.

As their website says, “Each year, TechEd changes the face of education – don’t miss it!”
