The UCET Conference is the largest educational technology conference in the Mountain West region. Our sessions are provided by the amazing EdTech educators and leaders from all over Utah, and our keynote and featured speakers are among the best in the country. Plus, our Expo Hall will have an incredible variety of solutions and tools to explore and learn more about.
In 2024, we are combining forces with the Utah Educational Library Media Association, or UELMA, providing speakers and sessions focused on our Media Specialists and Librarians.
We also provide focused strands, or a “Conference within a conference” on a wide variety important topics in education, whether they are focused on technology or not. Learn more about our conference strands for the current year.

Lunch is not included in the conference registration, but our location at the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City provides numerous options within walking distance.
