Don’t miss Lenovo’s vision for the future of education at FETC 2023
January 9, 2023
Education is a rapidly evolving field, particularly when it comes to implementing classroom technology. More than ever, today’s education leaders rely on conversations with edtech innovators and each other as they navigate the changing landscape of technology and teaching.
For more than 40 years, the National Future of Education Technology® Conference (FETC) has brought together educators and edtech innovators from around the world for meaningful conversations and presentations on new technologies and practices shaping the education field. Taking place from Jan 23-26 in New Orleans, this year’s FETC is expected to draw more than 9,000 education leaders and professionals from around the world.
LanSchool and Lenovo are looking forward to leading some of these conversations. Whether you’re an educator, IT leader, or edtech vendor, we hope to connect with you at this year’s event. Here are five Lenovo moments you won’t want to miss at FETC.
1. Giveaways galore
Lenovo will be giving away great prizes throughout the conference at Booth #1029, including the following.

Lenovo is giving away a Classroom Makeover that includes 24+ Lenovo VR headsets complete with controllers, a charging cart, 2-year LISS and hardware warranties, and pre-loaded software with Immersive Learning Hub providing classroom, content and device management, Veative, and Wild Immersion.
