About ICEF Virtual ANZA 2020
ICEF Virtual ANZA maintains a clear focus on Australia and New Zealand as study destinations. In 2020, this online event welcomed 426 international education industry professionals over 3 days, hosting a combined 3,127 meetings, and showing the tremendous appetite and enthusiasm for continued networking across the industry, even with global travel restrictions. This was reinforced by our record agency attendance, where we welcomed more agents, from more countries, than ever before to an ANZA event.
As ICEF’s first ever online event, Virtual ANZA marked a significant change from previous in-person networking conferences, and the shift to an all-virtual format brought about several positive developments, allowing agents from around the world to join who may not otherwise have been able to attend an event in person. Despite being unable to travel, event participants unanimously considered ICEF Virtual ANZA to have been a valuable experience, with 92% of attendees satisfied or highly satisfied by their experience, and 91% indicating they met their primary objective of attending.
As ICEF’s first virtual event in the region, Virtual Americas marked a significant change from 2019’s ICEF Toronto, and the shift to an all-online format brought about several positive developments, allowing agents from around the world to join who may not otherwise have been able to attend an event in person. Despite missing the physical interaction of in-person ICEF events, participants at ICEF Virtual Americas recognised the value of attending online events while they were unable to travel. 92% of attendees reported that they were satisfied or highly satisfied by their experience, and 94% indicated they met their primary objective of attending.
