Thinking of Conferences for 2014?


My director just put out the call for us to populate out 2014/15 conference wish list. As the only communications/design person on the team, my list is a little bit different than the others. Wouldn’t it be great to hit more than one of these. My focus here is on design/ marketing / communications in higher education. In order of the strength of my desire to attend:
