It’s all about community.

During the day, HighEdWeb Annual Conference attendees focus on working, learning and building the future of web. In the evening, we talk, laugh, and create connections that last the year round.

Sunday, October 8

Sunday, October 8, we’ll gather for the HighEdWeb 2017 Welcome Reception at City Steam. Housed in the historical Cheney Building in the heart of the city, City Steam offers an outdoor deck, a pool and game room, and multi-level seating and lounges where you’ll enjoy great food and drinks while catching up with HighEdWeb friends old and new. And did we mention they have a steam-powered beer brewery you’ll be able to tour?!

Tuesday, October 10, we’ll take over the Connecticut Science Center for our Big Social Event. You’ll have free reign to nibble and sip while exploring four floors containing 150 hands-on exhibits. You’ll learn about topics ranging from dinosaurs to LEGOs®, engineering to anatomy … and maybe a little space, aliens and androids thrown in for good measure! No matter what your interest, you’ll have a chance to play in HighEdWeb style on our last conference night in Hartford.
