Ever since I chatted with Higher Ed Tech Decisions about predicted trends at EDUCAUSE 2015, my inbox has been overflowing with emails asking, “What is Citrix doing at the show this year?!” So, I figured I should write this post sooner, rather than later, to fill in everyone on our big plans!

Citrix has never invested more in education than we are today, and you will see this through our engagement with attendees at the EDUCAUSE 2015 Annual Conference.

Citrix is going to be there to greet you as soon as you check-in. We are proud to be the hotel host at the JW Marriott, right across the street from the Indianapolis Convention Center. Browse our welcome letter to learn about the networking opportunities available to you and the great prizes we’ll be giving away throughout the event. Or keep reading to get a sneak peek.

As your hotel hosts for the week, we invite you to join us for a special reception. After a long day at the show, meet us at the JW Marriott Osterio Pronto for cocktails, hors d’ouevres, and networking.
