Conference theme

NZIEC 2015 brings together practitioners and leaders from across New Zealand’s fifth largest export industry to explore strategies for growth. The Conference provides an opportunity to discuss, strategise and connect with expert speakers and delegates.

The government’s Leadership Statement for International Education outlines ambitious onshore and offshore goals for the international education industry to achieve by 2025. With less than a decade to go until 2025, NZIEC 2015 focuses on how you can Accelerate Your Growth.

To achieve success as an industry, we need to understand key changes in international markets, pursue innovation, invest in capability and communicate a strong brand. Through a range of presentations, workshops, discussions and case studies, NZIEC 2015 will provide a platform to learn what organisations around the world are doing to execute these strategies, and what we can do to improve ours.
