Pedagogy and Technology Conference

July 23, 24 and 25, 2019 • Berea, Kentucky

Registration for the 2019 Conference is not yet open.

The 2019 LAMP Conference will be held at the historic Boone Tavern Hotel Guesthouse in Berea, Kentucky.

Because Boone Tavern is a guesthouse, there are a variety of rooms to fit different budgets and configuration needs. Unlike a cookie-cutter hotel, each room has its own charm and most are furnished with antique reproduction furniture made in the Berea College student crafts industry.

Berea is conveniently located on Interstate 75 between Lexington, Kentucky and Knoxville, Tennessee at exits 76 and 77. Travel time from Lexington is about 45 minutes and from Knoxville is closer to two hours.

Besides the Conference, there are many reasons to visit Berea. Designated the Arts and Crafts Capitol of Kentucky, Berea has a number of craft shops, many with artisans who will gladly demonstrate their art. The Artisan Center at Exit 77 is a destination for travelers from all over. It houses the very best of Kentucky's artists, craftspeople, and locally grown merchandise. Many charming shops and small restaurants are adjacent to Boone Tavern. Other areas in town also have clusters of shops and dining opportunities, especially the Old Town area clustered around the Berea Train Depot.

Come to the 2019 LAMP Conference, but plan to spend some extra time in Berea, Kentucky!
