MEA is a very useful forum for educators to learn new strategies and tactics, exchange ideas about improving teaching effectiveness, and enjoy quality time with fellow educators. It's not your typical academic conference.

MEA is a conference where I have been able to connect and become friends with other faculty members who care about the practice and scholarship of marketing education. It is a great place to share pedagogical research which can later be submitted to pedagogical journals, and to pick up practical insights into curriculum, classroom management, effective teaching, and more. MEA is a friendly and collegial conference where people attend sessions ready to learn, and ideas are discussed in a supportive (and fun!) environment.
