The Windsor Court Hotel * New Orleans, LA
The Distance Education and Training Council has more than 100 member institutions that together enroll approximately 4 million students.

Continue reading below to see what’s new at this year’s Fall Workshop, learn how to register, and get the details on setup, takedown and shipping your exhibit materials.
Exhibitors at this year’s Fall Workshop will have more opportunity than ever to connect with DETC institutions. Each exhibitor registration includes access to all the meeting's education sessions and social functions as well as one exhibit area (Please Note: Each exhibit area will consist of one 8' tabletop and two chairs. Any exhibit materials (backdrops, etc.) should not be wider than 8'. Any materials wider than 8' will not be allowed.) The exhibit area is located in the same room as meeting registration. This room is also where the continental breakfast is served each morning and where the beverage station will be set during the day, so attendees will pass through the exhibit area several times during the day. Also, the exhibit area is directly adjacent to the room being used for lunch each day.
After registering, exhibitors will be able to access an online registration list for the meeting. The list updates live, so you'll always be working with the most current registration list.
Click here to register for the DETC Fall Workshop! Exhibitor registration costs $2,000, which includes the exhibit space and one attendee’s registration.

Please note, attendees must register separately for Tuesday evening’s Closing Reception and Dinner. Registrations are $100 and can be purchased during the online registration process. Anyone planning to attend Tuesday’s Reception and Dinner must purchase the registration online. The Workshop registration deadline is Friday, September 27th.
