About Ed-Fi Summit 2019

The Ed-Fi Summit is an annual conference that connects the sector—state and local education agency leaders, ed-tech providers, educators, and technical experts—to advance data interoperability in education. What started as a convening of 20 CTOs has grown into something big; this year’s Summit will draw more than 400 attendees for an inspiring keynote, daily networking events, ed-tech exhibitors, and 80+ sessions.

Our growing community gathers at the Summit because they know we’ll never have less data to manage than we do today. The question is: How can we best organize, protect, and present that data to better support our students and teachers?

The Ed-Fi Community is energetic and dedicated. They arrive at our Summit from all over the country, with all different levels of technical expertise. They come ready to learn, share, meet as many people as possible, and have a great time—because, when in Austin!
We hope you’ll join us.

Again this year, the Ed-Fi Summit will be held at the Austin Hilton, an upscale downtown hotel one block from 6th street’s lively music and entertainment scene.

The Hilton provides ample space for Ed-Fi Summit attendees to meet and connect with sponsors in the 4th-floor foyer—an area we’re calling Community Hall. On-site dining includes a funky taco eatery with a terrace, a Texas-inspired bar with an open kitchen, and (importantly) a Starbucks.
