About Us

Edugion first came to mind in 2004. Our founder Mitch Zeisler was at the time working on T.H.E. Conference Calendar a listing of every educational technology event in North America, sparking the idea that this could be expanded to list events in every industry. In 2010 T.H.E. Conference Calendar folded and discussion about Edugion started. Not being “techie,” the plan sat idle until 2012 when our C.T.O. Rob Mitchell jumped aboard. However, Mitch and Rob both having commitments to their day job, Edugion remained a dream. In 2018 after a six-year hiatus, Edugion started taking shape. Within those six years, the vision of what Edugion would be matured and evolved into what it is today and what it will be in the future.

Why we do it?

Edugion was created as a result of the poor quality of online listing trade events (conferences, exhibitions, expositions, meetings, seminars, summits, trade shows, webinars, and workshops). Mitch realized that there was apparent disarray and countless missing features when it came to those listings. With that in mind, he understood the value that listing trade events and more as part of the trade industry could have. With that objective, it became easy to see Edugion’s educational value.

How we do it?

Edugion curates resources, including calls for proposals, events, exhibitors (companies), higher education, jobs, news, piggyback events, speakers, trade associations, trade media, and venues, to provide a comprehensive view of industry information. This information is then filtered through and searchable via the harmonized industry classification systems of CPC, HS, ISIC, NACE, and NAICS. We’ve structured Edugion around these globally respected industry classifications to establish a more appreciated and easily navigated site. You can select amongst our resources and then any or all acronyms, months, years, regions, territories, states, provinces, and countries to retrieve your desired data.

Timeline of Industry

Our world and its industries are constantly evolving. Our industry timeline goes over what our team believes are the most significant events in industrial history that led us to create Edugion.
