Join us for the 2017 UEA Convention & Education Exposition October 19-20

The UEA Convention & Education Exposition is Utah’s premier education event. The UEA has been providing teacher training at its annual Convention for more than 100 years. Recent years have included activities for kids, parents and anyone interested in public education.

The 2017 UEA Convention & Education Exposition will be held Thursday and Friday, Oct. 19-20, at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy.


The 2016 UEA Convention

The 2016 UEA Convention & Education Exposition kicked off with remarks from the UEA president, the NEA president and Utah’s governor. “What I love more than anything about times like this Convention where we can get together is that reminder of why we do what we do, said UEA President Heidi Matthews. “We need this reminder – this inspiration – so that we can be the teachers that our students deserve.”

Held at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, the 2016 UEA Convention delivered much more than just professional development for educators. Parents discovered new ways to engage their children in education and kids experienced hands-on science, math, art and reading activities.

For well over 100 years, Utah educators have gathered at the UEA Convention to share best practices. The 2016 Convention featured professional development for K-12 educators, compelling keynote speakers, a New Educators’ Workshop and dozens of vendor booths, seminars and workshops for parents, and a hands-on learning area for children.
