CELCAT Attends SCUP 2014
Ed O'Donnell (Vice President of CELCAT USA) and Ian Grimes (Regional Account Manager from CELCAT UK) attended the SCUP (Society of College and University Planners) Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 14-15, 2014. There were 1,330 attendees from colleges, universities and commercial interests from around the world.
Principal speakers were Nancy Zimpher, chancellor of the State University System of New York (the SUNY has 64 colleges and universities with about 463,000 students enrolled), Clay Shirky (author and arts professor at New York University) and Jeff Selingo, author (College (Un) Bound) and former top editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education.
Ed took in the speech by Clay Shirky and also attended a seminar entitled 'Campus Space…An Asset, A Liability and an Opportunity.'
Ian attended the seminar on space efficiency, which was entitled 'How Big: Counting Space.'
Both seminars provided powerful and useful insights that will aid CELCAT as we refine and enhance our marketing posture in North America.
