The Distance Learning Administration conference gives you the unique opportunity to present your company’s distance-learning related products or services to a specific audience made up of distance learning administrators, directors, university deans, vice-presidents, and related purchasers. This is a very cost effective way to communicate your message and make an impact at the conference.

There are also sponsorship opportunities available for exhibitors who want to maximize their visibility and create a unique impact at the conference. It is because of our sponsors that our conference is consistently successful and often cited as the "favorite conference" of many distance education leaders.
