Get Ready to "Spill the Tea"

Are you ready to speak your truth about the challenges we face in higher ed marketing, such as shrinking budgets, demanding leadership, creative burnout, etc? If so, plan to join us in Savannah, Georgia, as we “spill the tea” and share both our successes and our frustrations for navigating today’s ever-changing marketing landscape. We’ll focus on real solutions to real issues with straight talk from our presenters and keynote speakers. 

Savannah was dubbed the “world’s friendliest city” according to Conde Nast Traveler readers, so prepare to enjoy a city full of history, art, unique shopping and natural beauty every which way you turn. Savannah is also called America’s most haunted city, so perhaps you’d like to explore a few ghost stories as well. We’ll be staying at the elegant The DeSoto Hotel, located in the heart of Savannah’s historic garden district, just steps away from dozens of charming restaurants and trendy boutiques – not to mention the beautiful Tybee Island is just minutes away. Attendees will be able to stroll through the city’s many famous squares and enjoy the southern charm, history and hospitality of Georgia’s oldest city. 

So grab your Earl Grey, your Luzianne or your best herbal blend and head to Savannah to “spill the tea” with your District 2 colleagues on Nov. 7-9.

Attend Virtually!

If you can’t make a getaway to Savannah, we’ve got you covered! You’ll be able stream keynote speeches, Medallion Awards reception, Awards of Excellence presentation, Peer and Simple podcast interview, and you’ll have access to the exhibitors’ virtual booths and as well as to recorded versions of all conference presentations during and after the conference.
