About the Workshop

The Australia New Zealand Agent Workshop 2018 will be held in Auckland, New Zealand. Excellent facilities, an inspiring art scene, fantastic cuisine and unique culture - Auckland has much to offer international students and visitors. View a 1 minute destination video here.

Both New Zealand and Australia offer world-class education, travel and lifestyle opportunities at competitive price points, making them highly attractive destinations for students and youth travellers from across the globe. Each year ANZA attracts hundreds of educators, work & travel organisations, industry service providers, and international agents (buyers) who send many thousands of students and youth travellers to the region annually.

The ANZA Workshop is the most efficient and cost-effective way to personally meet a large number of high-quality agents committed to sending students and youth travellers to New Zealand and Australia.

In 2017, the ANZA Workshop hosted 482 participants from 320 organisations in 49 countries, growing by 15% over the previous year. Educators, work & travel organisations, and service providers conducted over 4 200 pre-scheduled business meetings with 178 top quality agents from 42 countries.

ICEF takes agent quality very seriously. Consequently, all agents at the ANZA Workshop will have passed ICEF’s comprehensive selection and screening process. Additionally, each agency will have proven an active interest in New Zealand and Australian destinations.

The ANZA Workshop offers many professional development opportunities for participants, including seminars on international education trends, insights into key markets, current visa issues and guidance on building successful relationships with agents.
