Everything you need to know about SchoolCEO Conference.

March 6 & 7, 2023

Win with brand, culture & influence.

Four years ago we saw that superintendents and school leaders were hungry to know more about marketing. They wanted to know how to better influence the way their community thought and felt about their school districts.

So we created a team of writers, researchers, and designers and launched our very own quarterly print magazine—complete with original research, interviews, and perspectives. It became the first school marketing magazine that also explored how to influence brand, culture, recruitment and more. Today, more than 18,000 people read SchoolCEO Magazine.

Now we’re building a community around SchoolCEO. We couldn’t think of a better way to do that than to create an experience that brings the best minds on brand, culture, and influence into a conversation together.

Meet SchoolCEO Conference.

We look forward to hosting you, learning with you, and building this community together.

Can you tell me more?

We thought you’d never ask.

Like you, we attend plenty of conferences. They’re nice and all, but when was the last time you were surprised or experienced the unexpected?

We're bringing speakers you don’t ordinarily have access to into the same room. You'll get to hear ideas, research, and presentations often reserved solely for corporate audiences.

Here’s what makes SchoolCEO Conference the best you can attend:

  • Keynote speakers and plenary sessions only
  • Breakfast, lunch, dinner provided
  • Live entertainment and memories included
  • No vendor booths
  • No breakout sessions
  • No crowds (limited attendance)

There’s more but we have to keep some of the surprises a surprise. Although you could always strongarm a past attendee to see if you can get them to break their vow of secrecy. Good luck.

Why Memphis?

Considered the birthplace of blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll, Memphis boasts a number of great places to visit such as Elvis’ Graceland estate and the Memphis Music Hall of Fame. But the more than 10 million annual visitors can tell you, there’s more to Memphis than music.

In particular, past conference guests have enjoyed touring the National Civil Rights Museum, walking the largest pedestrian bridge across the Mississippi, and eating incredible food around Memphis from Beale St. and beyond.
