"I have a far deeper understanding of the field of experiential education, and my place within it. I have a greater understanding of my own strengths as a facilitator. I became a noticeably better facilitator through what I learned. I left with new tools that I began using right away." -AEE International Conference Attendee

"The Association for Experiential Education is invaluable in terms of rejuvenation, information and connection.  As an exhibitor, it was so fun sharing our product with interested participants, and it was well worth our time to attend the conference." -AEE International Conference Exhibitor




"You can never be too sure when you're signing up for a exhibitors booth for the first time but I was so incredibly pleased by the wonderful conversations and connections I made. Not only that, but I felt also like an attendee to learn along the way when people were not stopping by the booth. A wide range of attendees was great!" -AEE International Conference Exhibitor
