Last year more than 8,500 educators and leaders from across the country and around the world convened at FETC to explore cutting-edge technology strategies. This year, FETC is expecting an even greater turnout with 400 expert-led sessions, 150 ticketed workshops and 500 exhibiting companies.


We’ve custom-built FETC 2015 to provide attendees with an experience that will impact them long after the conference is over.

Thousands of educators from across the country will have an opportunity to explore emergent technologies, cutting-edge programs and a highly innovative ed-tech marketplace at FETC 2015, the largest national educational technology conference held on the east coast.

FETC’s 35th annual conference will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 20-23, and will feature dynamic speakers, exhibitors and events designed to provide PK-12 educators and administrators with an unparalleled opportunity to explore different technologies while increasing their familiarity with the latest devices, hardware, software and successful strategies for student technology integration.

“More than 8,500 educators annually make FETC the cornerstone of their professional development plan,” said Patrick Gallagher, Event Director, Education Events at 1105 Media. “We are so proud that we’ve been able to establish FETC as one of the most comprehensive and progressive ed-tech conferences in the country.”

“From our stellar session line-up, to our expert keynotes, to our interactive exhibit hall, we’ve custom-built FETC 2015 to provide attendees with an experience that will impact them long after the conference is over,” said Gallagher.
