We at Enrollment Builders love in-person networking events. We're so glad that most higher ed organizations are hosting their admissions and strategic enrollment management conferences in 2023.

Now, almost three years after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down everything, it's starting to feel like "normal" again. We are grateful that strategic enrollment management conferences have mostly returned to business as usual, helping educational institutions of all kinds to boost their enrollment and keep prospective student engagement high.

Last year, in addition to our Higher Education Call Center Services, we compiled a short guide to admissions and enrollment management conferences and sent it to our clients. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, especially from those who utilized our Higher Ed Call Center Services. We wanted to make it even more comprehensive this year and share it with more people, earlier in the year. Because it's never too soon to begin planning, we're excited to publish our Guide to 2023 Higher Ed Admissions & Enrollment Management Conferences. Use the information here to map out the conferences you hope to attend. And if you're looking for support in managing your enrollment calls, don't forget to explore our Enrollment Call Center Services.
