2020 UEDA Summit Pricing

We are happy you are considering attending the 2020 UEDA Summit! The Summit is an interactive experience dedicated to unique knowledge-sharing, networking, and forward-thinking thought leadership specifically designed for economic development professionals at institutions of higher education, as well as their partners within their ecosystems.

Summit registration includes all content, receptions, and meals listed as part of the agenda. Participants are responsible for also reserving their own hotel rooms, which is a separate fee.

Registration Details


Payment Options

Payments are accepted via credit card through our secure payment portal at the time of transaction. Registrants also have the option to select an invoice option and then submit payment by either check or credit card against an invoice. Payments must be received by the UEDA office by any discount deadlines (e.g. Early Bird) in order to keep the discount.


Become a Member!

If you are not a member, please pay the non-member rate. However, members receive a discount to the Summit, as well as many other year-round benefits. If your organization is interested in joining UEDA as a member, start the membership process today!


Early Bird Registration

UEDA members and non-members are eligible for a $100 Summit registration discount for registrations and payments received by 11:59 pm ET on August 1, 2020.


Group Registration Discount

Groups consisting of THREE or more registrants are eligible to receive a 10% discount on the 2020 UEDA Summit registration fees. Group discount does not apply to groups containing students, as the student rate is already deeply discounted. Student rate applies to full-time students ONLY. To take advantage of the group discount:

  1. Ask each registrant to register at the appropriate level and initiate an invoice at the end of the registration. Do not pay for the registration. An invoice with the discount will be generated manually.
  2. Send an email to the UEDA Events Team after everyone in the group has registered. The Events Team will send an updated invoice for payment, with the discount noted, for processing.

Participants are encouraged to attend with other members of their regional economic ecosystem and take advantage of our group discount!

Cancellation Policy

All registration cancellations and refund requests must be made in writing by August 17, 2020. A refund of the conference fee, minus a $75 administrative fee, will be given for cancellations received by that date. Submit all requests to the UEDA Events Team. UEDA regrets that refunds will not be given for requests past this date or for no-shows.



You will receive an electronic confirmation of your registration. If you have not received a confirmation within two business days after registering, please contact the UEDA Events Team.


Consent to Use of Photographic Images

Registration and attendance at, or participation in, UEDA meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant for UEDA use and distribute (both now and in the future) the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions, and audiotapes of such events and activities.
