HighEdWeb, on the town.
It’s all about community. During the day, HighEdWeb Annual Conference attendees focus on learning about best practices, emerging technologies and the future of web. In the evening, we talk, laugh, and connect with the great HighEdWeb community of which we’re a part year round. Blues, barbecue and Southern hospitality — what more could you want?!
HighEdWeb Welcome Reception
Sunday, October 16
When in Memphis, do as the Memphis folks do — so it seems appropriate that we kick off #heweb16 by taking it to the one and only Beale Street! That’s right, on Sunday night we’ll be busing down the road to take over Silky O’Sullivans, in the heart of the Beale district. There will be live bands, serious nibbles, fountain drinks and a cash bar. Oh, and goats. (Yes, goats. No, we’re not kidding.) Plan to join us as we kickstart HighEdWeb 2016 in style!
Monday, October 17
Explore Memphis as you enjoy dinner on your own, and then return to the Sheraton Memphis Downtown for dessert, coffee, cash bar and games on the veranda.
HighEdWeb Big Social Event
Tuesday, October 18
We’ll celebrate our last night in the heart of downtown Memphis as we take over the local ballpark, AutoZone Park! There will be classic ballpark food (peanuts! popcorn! hot dogs!), live soul/blues music (Brown Soul Shoes!), games (batting cages! corn hole tournament!), and some classic-Americana surprises around every corner.
