2024 AHEAD Annual Conference Exhibit & Marketing

AHEAD Equity & Excellence Access in Higher Education

Welcome from Jane Johnston, AHEAD Director of Member Services

Since 1977 AHEAD has been providing invaluable resources to professionals who work in disability services in higher education and beyond. AHEAD’s Annual Conference usually draws approximately 1350 attendees. 
All attendees have the same goals and seek to gain knowledge about disability services in higher education. Accessible technology, improving accommodations, postsecondary transition tools, universal design, and legal updates are just a few of the topics our attendees pursue. 
You’re invited to join us July 15-19 in Baltimore, Maryland. We invite you to be creative! Put your company or organization in the spotlight. From sponsoring to exhibiting in person to presenting, you can leave a lasting impression on this important audience. 
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
