Much More Than Presentations

One-On-One Strategy Meetings

The unproductive days of aimlessly strolling an expo floor are over! In advance of the forum, participants of the K12 Facilities Forum are able to login to our private network and schedule facetime with the service providers and supplier companies that interest them most.

Intimate Group Discussions

In addition to thought-provoking presentations, The K12 Facilities Forum also includes numerous opportunities for casual discussions amongst peers. With a delegation of facilities leaders from the nation’s leading school districts we realize the potential for these organic conversations.

Unforgettable Networking

Outside of the educational and sourcing opportunities, we know that a key reason people attend events is to network. The Forum provides numerous opportunities to connect with your peers and establish new relationships. Scroll down to see what we have planned for this year!

“The venue was perfect for unscripted unplanned conversations, whether it be at the table, fire pit, or dinner. These spontaneous occurrences helped shape the success of the event.”

Chief Operations Officer

“This conference more so than any other I’ve been to is more representative of the size of districts that I deal with.”

Deputy Superintendent of Operations


“Phenomenal event–it makes me happy to network with people that are sharing the same problems, and have more creative solutions than we do sometimes.”


Networking Activities


Taste of Downtown Tour

Spend the afternoon with peers on a stroll through Downtown San Diego as we sample bites from the city’s best restaurants. With the help of a native tour guide, you’ll head out on a 3 hour exploration to discover why San Diego is becoming a culinary mecca for locals and world travelers alike. Along the way learn about the history, insights and stories that have shaped the town. Enjoy Chicago-style pizza, gourmet Indian cuisine, handmade desserts, rustic Italian & more.  We promise this afternoon will leave you with a full belly, some newfound knowledge and long-lasting connections.
