UW Conference Management is a division of Educational Outreach. Our Conference Management team has over 50 years of experience in the professional management of conferences, symposia, workshops and institutes.
UW Conference Management specializes in the management and presentation of educational and scholarly meetings and our partnerships are with clients in all academic areas, government agencies, local industry, and professional associations.
We work cooperatively with other UW campus departments including the catering and conference services divisions of UW Housing and Food Services, Event Services (managing campus event facilities), the Student Union facilities, and many other facility and service providers on campus.
