- Hosting the conference raises the visibility of Engineering Education engagement on your campus, including with senior university officials.

The process of preparing the remarks often serves to deepen their understanding and appreciation of Engineering Education engagement and learning at your institution.

- The mayor or other elected official has the opportunity to welcome and address conference participants or sometime they may write a welcoming letter to include in the programme and proceedings. As with your University President, Dean or Department Head, this experience deepens that understanding and appreciation of the concerns and interests in Engineering Education and how students are taught.
- Hosting provides the opportunity for a large number of your students, staff, and faculty to attend the conference.
- Host campus staff and students who get involved in organizing the conference gain valuable leadership skills and experiences.
