About the Convention

Who is TCEA?

As the largest nonprofit ed tech association in the United States, with just over 70,000 members, we’ve been working with educators and legislators for over 40 years to eliminate the barriers in education.

We’re dedicated to advancing teaching and learning through the use of technology because we want to make learning possible for every student. How? Through a combination of advocacy, professional learning, and community offered through TCEA membership.

Everyone who attends a TCEA event gets a TCEA membership with their registration. The best part? Membership renews for free each year. (Yeah. We want every educator to enjoy the benefits of TCEA, so membership is free– forever.)

What is the TCEA Convention & Exposition?

The TCEA Convention & Exposition is our biggest and brightest professional development event of the year. We’ve been putting on this educational conference for 44 years, and we can tell you straight up – it’s a powerful learning experience. And a supportive, international community of educators.

Is this an ed tech conference?

It’s so much more.

At TCEA, thousands of educators from around the world come together to connect, learn, and cultivate their craft. Our focus isn’t just on ed tech, it’s on good teaching, good leading, and good learning with ed tech. Through top-notch speakers, on-trend sessions, an exhibit hall full of first-rate vendors, and lots of networking, TCEA sets educators up to dig into curiosity and discover.
