About the event

ICEF Australia New Zealand (ANZA) 2019 will be held in Darwin, Australia. See a short video highlighting the uniqueness of the Northern Territory here. Agents - see some of the Northern Territory's education facilities and activities agents participated in during the post ANZA 2018 Darwin agent FAM tour here.

Both Australia and New Zealand 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.

ANZA 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 Australia and New Zealand.

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

ANZA 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.

    “It was an absolute pleasure to attend the ANZA Conference this year. It was a great opportunity to catch up with our partner schools as well as get to know more institutions for potential new partnership. The ICEF team was so helpful. They were always attentive to make sure we had a great conference. Thanks for organising and for giving us the chance of networking with institutions in Australia and New Zealand as well as strengthening our current partnerships. I will definitively continue attending ICEF events and bring more staff members to upcoming conferences. Thanks again! ” - Daniel Wilkinson, New Oriental Global Study Tour Promotion & Management Center, China.
