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.

About the event

The event enables educators to hold up to 40 pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings with relevant, quality student recruitment agents, as well as with other educators and service providers. These appointments are 25 minutes in duration and serve the dual objective of meeting new contacts and maintaining existing relationships. The event programme also includes meals, refreshment breaks and evening functions, which offer valuable networking opportunities.

PROPOSAL FORM for FAM Tours and Receptions / ANZA


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.

Promotion

Once your proposal has been accepted by ICEF, we will promote your event to assist you in attracting the quantity and variety of agents desired.

Your FAM tour or reception will be listed in this section of the website along with your contact details, hyperlinks and / or promotional materials. ICEF will also promote your event to all attending agents once their registration has been approved, as well as in numerous follow-up communications prior to the event.
