What Others Say:

"TxDLA always does such an incredible job with the conference year after year. Regardless of the names of the people involved, it is consistently one of the best events through and through.

 

Ken Conn

Director, Partnerships & Collaboration

"... it provides access to the right customers from all over the state all in one place, at one time, with some very strategic opportunities to socialize, build relationships and show our latest and greatest solutions.  It would take all year to travel to each of the member's locations, let alone get all of the key customers to come to your booth or attend a vendor session. Above and beyond that, TxDLA lends credibility to what my company represents each and every day to all of my customers around the world. You can always count on a great location, big attendance numbers and a very organized, well put together conference."

"Being leaders in the Texas distance learning community, our team recognizes the importance of being involved with the premier distance learning association in the state.  Having one organization that serves a multitude of distance learning constituents provides us with a way to interact with other distance learning leaders as well as give back to the community in a meaningful manner. Partnering with TxDLA provides access to leaders in the field of distance learning and the ability to act directly with many decision makers."

"Given the size and the audience for the event, TxDLA's exhibit hall always gives us a chance to connect with DE academic leaders and technology experts who directly implement our product's success on campuses. We always find time to update one another, collaborate, and in the true spirit of TxDLA -  interact while having FUN - something that sets this apart from all other conferences."
