About this event

The 15th annual ICEF Australia New Zealand (ANZA) gives education providers from Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to meet with top international student recruitment agents from around the world who have a focus on these key study destinations.

Both countries offer world-class education, travel, and lifestyle opportunities at competitive price points, making them highly attractive destinations for international students. ICEF ANZA typically attracts hundreds of educators, work & travel organisations, industry service providers, and international student recruitment agents sending thousands of students and youth travellers to the region annually.

Please note that ICEF ANZA 2021 will be a hybrid event, with delegates participating in-person at the Adelaide Convention Centre, and others virtually from anywhere in the world. The exact mix will depend on prevailing Australian entry and visa conditions in March 2022.

Programme & Seminars

At this three day hybrid networking event, you can build your own personalised programme from up to 40 in-person and 60 virtual one-on-one meeting slots with existing and potential partners, as well as benefit from a range of informal networking opportunities.

Whether you join us in-person or online, you will also be able to access our line-up of optional seminars, providing up-to-date information about the latest market trends and issues currently affecting Australia, New Zealand and the global world of international education. Our seminars are available live during the event and on demand through our online platform, both during and for 4 weeks after the event.

Additional event information

A hybrid event combines the onsite experience of an in-person gathering with the ability to also participate virtually.

What are the three ways delegates may meet each other?

  1. Physical delegates can meet each other face to face at the event.
  2. Physical delegates will also be able to meet virtual participants – from their meeting tables (own device and headsets required), in specially designated areas or in the comfort of their own hotel room. A fourth day dedicated to online meetings only has been added to the event programme.
  3. Virtual delegates can meet participants who are onsite at the event or also taking part virtually from another location.

What precautions are being taken to ensure the in-person event can be delivered safely?

The health and safety of our delegates is our primary concern and we are taking regular advice to ensure that our event conforms to the latest health guidance provided by the local authorities. Precautions we are taking include:

  • Delegates must be fully vaccinated or show proof of recent recovery from Covid-19.
  • Provision of hand sanitiser stations throughout the venue.
  • Making some seminars available on demand for those delegates who do not wish to attend sessions in-person.
  • Providing guidance to all delegates on social distancing and infection control best practices.
  • Providing medical face masks to be optionally worn by all participants during the event, to reduce the risk of virus transmission. We recommend that these should be worn when moving around the event venue or whenever social distancing is not possible.
  • Ensuring enhanced cleaning and regular disinfection of high-touch areas.
  • Subjecting food & beverage options and their delivery to tightened safety standards.

What happens if this event cannot take place in person?

We will follow the latest advice provided by local health authorities and will only allow the in-person aspects of this event to take place if it is safe to do so. In the event that local authorities restrict in-person networking, our hybrid event platform allows for us to seamlessly deliver this event in an online only format.

What happens if a delegate cannot attend in person?

If an in-person participant cannot attend due to travel restrictions or other reasons, we can switch the attendance seamlessly to take part virtually instead without the need to reschedule meetings. You may also transfer your booking to another in-person ICEF event.
