The Premier Innovation and Entrepreneurship Experience

for Higher Education

We are thrilled that you are joining us for OPEN 2024 taking place March 18-20, 2024 in San Diego, CA at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla. OPEN brings together faculty, administrators, staff, researchers and leaders from the STEM fields to share innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E) experiences and research, learn best practices, and forge dynamic new relationships. Our theme this year is Innovating Futures Together. What might the future look like for the next generation of I&E advocates and thought leaders? Is only one future possible? How will the disruptive technologies of today shape the jobs of the future? Who should be around the table working to solve the world's most difficult problems?

We look forward to exploring the answers to these questions with you at OPEN 2024!

Here's what's included in your conference registration:

  • Two and a half days of highly interactive sessions filled with leading-edge I&E content, research, and resources focused on topics like teaching and learning, ecosystem development, sustainability, and advancing equity
  • Multiple opportunities to connect and network with fellow faculty, staff, administrators, and funders
  • Daily breakfast, snacks, lunch, and evening receptions (including our signature OPENminds event!)

*We encourage you to bring your team. Group pricing includes five full conference attendee tickets for only the price of four! Meeting space is also available for team retreats (limited availability).

View the conference schedule here. If you are flying, we recommend arriving during the early afternoon on March 18 (or the evening of March 17 if you are participating in pre-conference activities or the off-site tour) and departing the morning of March 21 so you don't miss any conference programming or events. The closest airport is San Diego International Airport (SAN).
