The Future Campus Summit, hosted by Tambellini Group with a sponsorship by the University of California, Irvine, is an exclusive two-day retreat for 100 hand-selected, forward-thinking higher education executives. The Summit bridges research, industry, and higher education with thought-provoking keynotes, engaging panels, interactive workshops, and valuable networking in an intimate, luxurious setting at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California.  

The market and higher education are changing at an unprecedented pace. To survive, higher education institutions must embrace a culture of continuous improvement. This event is designed for the innovative leaders at higher education institutions who are looking to do just that. Attendees will gain actionable insights from Tambellini analysts, solution providers, and peers via keynotes, panels, and workshops—and a strong network of like-minded individuals.

The Future Campus Summit is being held January 17–18, 2024 at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California.

Over 30 thought leaders and inspirational speakers will be presenting at the event. It will be a mixture of Tambellini analysts, higher education institutions, and innovative solution providers. View our agenda for more information.
