Sponsors/Exhibitors 2017

The Nebraska Distance Learning Association is hosting its 16th Annual Conference, Digital Learning: Connect and Engage, February 9-10, 2017, at the Omaha Marriott Hotel (10220 Regency Cir).

The conference format allows for several breakouts, round table discussions and networking, pre-conference activities, keynote and spotlight speakers, as well as time to visit sponsors and content providers. Breakout sessions highlight best practices in K–20 education, telehealth, content provider, and hopefully sessions from your institution—as a sponsor—showcasing the latest and greatest in solutions for all aspects of distance or blended learning.

The deadline to register your sponsorship is January 20, 2017.
To submit presentations, the deadline was extended to December 7, 2016 (session submission now closed).
