In a hurry? : Skip straight to Sponsorship Options Advertising Exhibitor’s Package

When educational institutions collaborate across borders, we create better opportunities for students, greater visibility for the institutions and an improved labor force to meet the needs of today’s employers.

In a format unlike any other event, HEP 2017 will bring administrators and international program managers from across the Americas together for the singular purpose of building strong relationships and innovative partnerships for internationalization.

This year we will highlight the theme of workforce development, with a special focus on building international partnerships to create an internationally competent workforce.
