ADED Virtual Update

ADED is excited to announce the 2020 Annual conference will take place virtually July 26 -July 28.

We are excited to have the ability to provide content beyond a physical classroom opening valuable content to those unable or who could not afford to travel.

Over the past two months ADED has been working to create a virtual solution for the 2020 Conference and already has a vendor in place to handle all aspect of a robust virtual conference with workshops, seminars and an inclusive exhibition hall.

The ADED exhibitors are in support the ADED virtual conference and will be offering fun and creative ways to facilitate interactions between attendees and exhibitors.

What you experience at the ADED virtual conference will provide contact hours for those needing to fulfill their CDRS contact hour requirements. ADED policy 403 has been amended allowing for approval of ADED approved virtual content.

Now that an ADED virtual conference is official, all our efforts will have the goal of offering you incredible content, a satisfying vendor experience all while maintaining the feel and as many of the traditions of the conference as possible.
