2021 Symposium for the Marketing of Higher Education

A Hybrid Event for an Industry Evolved

This has been a year of renewal and emergence. Colleges and universities are learning to navigate an industry that has evolved to fit a world in flux. Although marketers in higher education are no strangers to rapid change, the past several years have presented a series of challenges that seem unprecedented in both their rapidity and size.

The AMA Symposium for the Marketing of Higher Education is your chance to connect with other marketers to forge the path forward. Now more than ever is the time for sharing knowledge, learning together and innovating to meet the present moment.


Online and In-Person Options

The hybrid format of this year’s conference is designed to meet marketers where they are. The Symposium offers three days of online programming and content (November 3-5) for all marketers to access as a team or on their own. Then, those at the director level and above can travel to Denver, Colorado, (November 7-9) for three days of networking and peer-to-peer learning.
