Register for NZIEC 2019
ENZ is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 28th New Zealand International Education Conference and Expo (NZIEC), being held at SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre on 7-8 August. Find out how to register and meet our keynote speakers.
NZIEC 2019 centres on the theme of ‘Navigating our changing world’. As our education system is reshaped over the coming decade, as international competition continues to intensify, and learner behaviour and technology rapidly evolves, how can we create a distinctive, competitive and valuable education proposition?
We’ll explore some ideas with our keynote speakers Dr Lisa Coleman, Guy Ryan and Chris Gallavin.
