Universities are continuously competing for the best and brightest minds to be part of their academic community. The best colleges are tasked with creating innovative spaces to complement their premier academics to attract the top echelon of students and faculty researchers.

The Campus Facilities Summit convenes the heads of facilities, capital planning, construction and engineering from the top colleges and universities across the country. It is created as an intimate, invitation-only executive conference providing a relaxed environment to connect with these leaders that oversee all aspects of design and construction.

The Campus Facilities Summit has transformed the way executives participate in conferences by creating memorable, collaborative and effective experiences. Through smaller, targeted sessions, we focus on continuous improvement for Chief Facilities Officers, AVP of Facilities, Directors of Construction and other top executives in facilities, design and construction.

    The 2017 summit was very beneficial to me. It reminded me that we need to continue to value our facilities and staff who are responsible for these critical assets. The experience will make me look at some things differently. Executive Senior Associate AD

    University of Texas at Austin

    The overall experience was amazing. It far surpassed my expectations. Normally, it is hard to engage in genuine conversations with representatives that are open and truly interested in your product/company. The way the summit allowed true vendor/client integration is second to none. Whether it was keynote speaker sessions, socials, dinners, roundtables, we had exposure from the time we set foot in the hotel. In my 7+ years in my industry, I have never experienced a conference/show/summit like this one. Sales Executive

    Great venue and very well organized. Thought folks were well cared for and things flowed well. I like the one-on-one with vendors. Associate AD

    Air Force Academy

    As a first time attendee, I knew I would enjoy the speakers and but really found the one on one meeting with vendors to as productive. The flow from program to vendor meeting was easy and allowed a break from each as the time at each was just right. Senior Associate AD

    Mississippi State University

    Great event this year. Quality meetings – pace was excellent, no one felt pressured. There were many open dialogues. CAFS is one of the best events I attend. North American Manager
