"We are all living in a time of transformational migration to digital instruction in [grades] K–12. ASCD has established itself as a leader of this change, and we are honored to support its efforts."
—Andrew Schlessigner, CEO and Cofounder, SAFARI Montage
ASCD—long recognized as one of the premier organizations in the field—is the only professional association that addresses the needs of education leaders serving in a variety of roles, including state- and district-level superintendents, assistant superintendents, and principals.
The ASCD Empower17 program offers 200+ sessions and the exhibit show features 250+ of the most respected names in educational publishing, research, and technology demonstrating the latest products and services.
Our general sessions provide a unique platform for highly respected and visionary difference makers to inspire thousands of the very administrators who will make decisions to shape the future of our education system.
Nearly a third of attendees approve or authorize purchases for their organizations.
Another third are involved in recommending purchases.
Many attend this show in teams—most are senior-level personnel with an average of 21 years of experience.
Market your products and services to the educators and business leaders who buy. Few education events rival this opportunity to meet the biggest buyers in a $44 billion U.S. K–12 market alone.
ASCD Empower17 draws more superintendents and assistant or associate superintendents and more principals and assistant principals than any other single education conference.
Plus, thousands of college faculty, lead teachers, consultants, and key school-level contacts attend the conference too.
ASCD Empower17 lets you target the leaders who control schools' purse strings.
