We’re taking over Music City in 2021!

The 2021 Slate Innovation Summit will bring over 3,000 Slate users together to discuss applications and best practices of Slate, as well as provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on topics that are critical to the forward momentum of higher education.

Admissions counselors, operations staff, technical staff, directors and deans of admission, vice presidents of enrollment, advancement staff, and companies who partner with Slate come together to exchange ideas focused on best and emerging practices across Slate, admissions, student success and advising, advancement, and higher education.

The 2021 Slate Innovation Summit will take over Music City Center and feature partner-led sessions for every role and level, our Slate Spotlight track presented by Technolutions experts, Thought Leadership panels, even more Affinity Group meet-ups, plus an optional pre-conference Summit Base Camp with hands-on training courses.
