“We are deeply honored to be inducted into the 2013 FAME Hall of Fame,” says Wendy LaDuke, President and Group Publisher, 1105 Media Education Group. “I’m just thrilled with the outstanding success and continued growth our FETC event achieves each year and with our amazing team at 1105 Media dedicated to pulling this comprehensive event together. Congratulations to all the winners, inductees, and honorable mentions celebrated today!”
Hall of Fame events have consistently demonstrated growth, innovation, adaptation and durability, and they've dramatically expanded the ways in which people interact with their parent brands. The FAME Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished events associated with magazine brands or magazine-media companies. These events must be at least a decade or older, they must have significantly changed a market, and expanded/enhanced a magazine-media brand's presence within their industry.
FETC is known for being one of the most comprehensive and progressive ed-tech conferences in the country. Thousands of thought leaders, top educators and technology experts from around the world and all over the U.S. attend FETC for the opportunity to explore emergent technologies, cutting-edge programs and a highly innovative ed-tech marketplace each year. One of the largest conferences in the nation devoted entirely to education technology, FETC is co-located with both the Learning Environments conference and expo event and the FDLA (Florida Distance Learning Association)
This past January, FETC celebrated its 33rd annual conference featuring dynamic speakers, exhibitors and events designed to provide PK-12 educators and administrators with an unparalleled opportunity to explore different technologies across the curriculum while increasing their familiarity with the latest devices, hardware, software and successful strategies on student technology integration.
With many press outlets in attendance, FETC is a widely covered event. Thousands of educators and exhibitors have the opportunity each year to connect and participate in multiple social networks. And during this year’s event, FETC was one of the top ten most active topics globally on Twitter.
The Exhibit Hall continues to provide a hands-on, interactive environment, allowing conference attendees to access the cutting-edge technologies transforming today’s education landscape. Attendees watch demonstrations, test new products, and purchase the latest innovations in classroom technology from top ed-tech companies, including industry powerhouses like Epson, Edmodo, Google Chromebooks, Insight Systems Exchange and Lenovo.
Next year’s FETC conference will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Jan 28 –31, 2014. To register and for the most up-to-date conference information, visit www.fetc.org.
