The 2009 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference saw an increase in both international and corporate partner participation; standing ovations for two of our general session keynotes; an extremely active Twitter backchannel; fantastic presentations; participants engaging in new ways at the Thursday night event, such as Ignite!-inspired sessions and the Black Box Theatre improv; and numerous examples of networking with colleagues throughout the conference space, making new contacts and connections for the coming year. Our full conference attendance boasted 3,700+, along with just under 2,400 exhibitor registrations. We also piloted our first annual online companion event, which ended up being a success thanks to great speakers and content, as well as valuable interaction with campuses across the world.
