The first EconoMe conference happened on March 7th 2020 and you can view all the videos of the speeches on our Youtube channel.
EconoMe 2021 is scheduled for November 13th & 14th, 2021.
The University of Cincinnati in the Great Hall of the (TUC) Tangeman University Center. Address: 2600 Clifton Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio 45220.

Transportation, accommodations, food, and booze are not included. However, we will make sure you’re caffeinated in the morning 😉

In addition to the standard rideshare services like Uber and Lyft, you can also ride with a fellow Economeist through Group Carpool! If you have room in your car or want to join the waitlist for an available car, join the party here.
We are not offering a virtual paid option because EconoMe really needs to be experienced in person in order for attendees to get ample value out of the cost of the ticket. However, all the speeches will be professionally recorded and available on the EconoMe Conference YouTube channel for FREE. You can go there now, subscribe, and check out the speeches from last year.
In an effort to keep the ticket price as accessible as possible, we will not be offering food at EconoMe. We encourage you to bring your lunch, snacks, and a water bottle (there are bottle filling stations to help you stay hydrated!)
We will have coffee for you in the morning to ensure that you’re PUMPED UP for our amazing speakers.
There is a food court in the Tangeman University Center and you can check out the other food options that are within walking distance here.
While there is so much to learn from our amazing mainstage speakers, there is also so much knowledge in the room among the attendees! Breakout sessions are an opportunity to dive into discussions with your fellow attendees on a variety of topics. These discussions will be facilitated by experts on the topics, but the real goal of these sessions is to get you all talking to each other and find new friends with similar interests.
EconoMe ticket holders should watch their email for a survey to help us narrow down the long list of topics we all want to discuss! Some initial ideas include:
Do you have a brilliant idea for a breakout session to add to the survey? Email email@example.com
Ticket sales for general admission at the $199 price point will close at 11pm on Friday November 12th. As long as the event isn’t sold out, you can purchase tickets after that for $249. Note you will still need to purchase through our Eventbrite ticketing page with a credit card, this can easily be done on site through your phone.
Students can claim an $80 discount off general admission by using the code STUDENT during checkout. If you purchase a discounted student ticket, you must show your student ID during morning check-in.
This discount is not limited to University of Cincinnati students, any college student from any school is permitted to use this discount.
Nope! Just make sure your name is accurate on your Eventbrite order and show your ID at check in. If you purchased a ticket for someone else, make sure their name is listed as the attendee on the order. If you purchased a discounted student ticket, YOU MUST SHOW YOUR STUDENT ID AT CHECK IN.
In keeping with new guidance from the CDC, The University of Cincinnati requires us to wear facial coverings while indoors. The space where EconoMe is being held is very large with plenty of space for social distancing, and we encourage attendees to exercise caution when interacting with each other. While we fully intend for EconoMe to move forward as planned, in the unlikely event of an externally imposed lockdown, we have a backup date for March 19th and 20th 2022.
