The beaches of Ponte Vedra, Florida provided a scenic backdrop for the 2016 K-12 Facilities Forum, where over 100 senior administrators from the nation’s largest school districts and innovative service providers gathered to connect and explore how to best meet the facility needs of their communities.


Attendees embraced our unique event format, which encouraged intimate, peer-to-peer discussions on common challenges faced by the industry, from generational dynamics to energy efficiency. Ruben Rojas, Chief Business Officer of Montebello USD in Los Angeles County, said, “It was a fantastic experience and I very much enjoyed the discussions, presentations, the venue and activities. The format was much better than a traditional trade show. ”


Valuable connections were also facilitated by fun, laidback activities such as a golf outing, a sailing tour of St. Augustine, and a networking dinner at Topgolf, a four-level entertainment venue with interactive games and dining. John Shea, CEO of the New York City Department of Education, remarked that “the informal atmosphere led to more substantive relationship developments.”


The sharing of best practices from top school district leaders and relevant suppliers allowed attendees to depart with a more informed, innovative approach to the industry’s biggest challenges, as well as meaningful new relationships from all over the country.
