Work and Travel ANZA

The Australia New Zealand Agent (ANZA) Workshop 2018 will be held in Auckland, New Zealand. World class 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.

Tap into the international student, edu-tourism and working holiday markets! 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 1:1 with buyers & sellers of education, edu-tourism, work, youth and student travel. 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 (buyers) 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 (buyer) 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, and guidance on building successful relationships with agents (buyers).

FAM Tours & Receptions

Agent familiarisation (FAM) tours and receptions are excellent ways for you to gain exposure and promote your institution and / or association to event registered agents.

FAM tours allow you to take advantage of a large number of agents attending the event and attract them to visit your institution, campus and region. Effective FAM tours enable agents to increase their product knowledge and bring back first-hand experience to potential students.


FAM Tour guidelines:

  • FAM tour organisers may determine all logistics, conditions and costs associated with their tour, including which event participants are accepted to join, and which are not.
  • ICEF will not get involved in the organisation of FAM tours, but simply ensure relevancy for event participants as well as an equal representation of tours to all delegates.
  • All delegates interested in attending FAM tours will be asked to make direct contact with the tour organiser. Organisers are responsible for confirming or declining acceptance directly with participants.
  • FAM tour organisers wishing to promote their tour through ICEF are required to submit a proposal. All proposals are subject to approval by ICEF.
  • FAM tours may only be offered outside of event related activities and times.
  • Only organisations attending the event may meet and host other event participants. We do not wish to encourage non-registered institutions to access and benefit from meeting potential business partners that event registered organisations have paid to meet.

Reception guidelines:

Receptions allow you to host agents in a memorable way while reinforcing your brand. Inviting the agents that you wish to target gives you the chance to make meaningful and focused connections in a relaxed and fun environment.

  • Reception organisers may determine all logistics, conditions and costs associated with their event, including which event participants and other business partners are accepted to join, and which are not.
  • ICEF will not get involved in the organisation of receptions, but simply ensure relevancy for event participants as well as an equal representation of receptions to all delegates.
