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.

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.
