What happens at MECA conferences?
MECA conferences provide participants a chance to network with peers, learn from each other’s experiences, see new vendor offerings, and, in general, receive outstanding professional development concerning instructional technology. Participants come from various backgrounds (K-12, Higher Ed, Business, etc.) and experience both hands-on sessions in labs and concurrent sessions in conference rooms. At the first MECA conference, there were four hands-on workshop labs provided by Apple, IBM PC, Radio Shack, and Commodore with 18 exhibitors and 500 participants. Last year we had over 24 hands-on sessions, over 70 exhibitors, and average 800+ participants.
