2021 SHPE National Convention

  • Orange County Convention Center
  • Orlando, Florida


The agenda continues to grow and evolve as the convention committee confirms speakers/sponsors. That detailed real time agenda will be available on this website in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here's a high level overview of the virtual and in-person days so you can plan your travel and what to expect this year.

Agenda as of July 22

Career Fair & Graduate School Expo Entry Info

This year's Career Fair & Graduate School Expo will be held on Thursday and Friday. As part of our safety protocols and line management updates, Career Fair access has been redesigned. Each day a portion of the student participants will receive early access to the Career Fair from 10am-2pm before the Career Fair opens for general access from 2-4pm.

During the onsite check-in process, the registration staff will provide student participants with a color-coded badge holder. The color of the badge holder will indicate whether you will receive early access to the Career Fair on Thursday or Friday.

On the day when a student doesn't have early access to the Career Fair, he or she may attend conference workshops. The Career Fair will be open to ALL attendees from 2-4pm on Thursday and Friday. Onsite signage will indicate the line up time schedules.

Professionals and graduate students may access the Career Fair at any time when it's open.

*Signature and Ticketed Events

Signature events, luncheons, breakfasts, select hospitality suites, and others will be limited to ticket access only. These will open after September 1 for you to add to your registration. Please check the website or newsletter for more details as they become available.

Virtual Events

These events are fully virtual and will not be held during the days of convention. Dates are TBD right now. For additional information please email events@shpe.org.
