ISTE and ASCD will be co-locating ISTELive and the ASCD Annual Conference starting in 2025. The events will be happening together June 29 - July 2, 2025, in San Antonio, Texas.

"When ASCD and ISTE decided to join forces, we did so with the goal of bringing together a community of educators and innovators to design the future of education," says Jennifer Ragan-Fore, ASCD + ISTE Chief Experience Officer, in a recent press release announcing the partnership. "At the heart of the merger was a desire to build a united community of passionate educators who would spark joy and design transformative learning experiences for their students."

The events will also coincide with Tech & Learning's Regional Leadership Summit, which will also be in San Antonio in 2025.

According to the press release, "By registering to attend either ISTELive or the ASCD Annual conference, [attendees] automatically unlock access to both conference programs covering innovative teaching, leadership, and learning across all instructional roles. In addition, [they'll] enjoy a series of joint learning experiences featuring exciting mainstage programming, an integrated expo focused on learning, and a series of blended content at the intersection of curriculum and digital innovation."

Although details are still being finalized, pricing will be similar to current ISTELive and ASCD Annual Conference pricing, with tiered registration and member discounts, according to the ASCD website. Conference content will be held at the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center, Grand Hyatt San Antonio, and San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. 

"Co-locating our two events helps us achieve this goal by providing you an unparalleled learning experience," Ragan-Force says in the press release. "At our co-located events you will have the chance to connect with some of the brightest minds in education, explore how technology can spark curiosity, and discover opportunities to make learning more meaningful and engaging."
