What to Expect at Evaluation 2024

AEA is beyond excited to present our in-person annual conference. Take a look at what you can expect at Evaluation 2024.


The conference will feature various sessions over the course of six days. There will be a variety of session types, from panels to birds of a feather gatherings. You can also expect professional development workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference for an additional fee.

Types of Sessions

You can expect:

  • Keynote presentations curated by AEA President
  • Presidential Strand sessions focused on this year’s conference theme
  • A mix of session styles
  • Limited workshops to take place separately from the conference

Exhibit Hall

Through our Exhibit Hall, you will be able to get to know publishers, universities, service providers, and organizations that serve the field of evaluation. Meet with exhibitors to have conversations, request information about their offerings, or exchange information to discuss their work at a later point.


One of the top benefits of attending Evaluation 2024 is the opportunity to meet other evaluators from around the world. During social events and in-between session, you have the opportunity to connect with others and meet one-on-one with speakers, popular authors, and AEA leadership.


This year, we will have more posters — almost double! We will also host two poster receptions. More details are coming soon!
