Connecting education providers with international education agents
The 15th annual ICEF Australia and New Zealand conference will be held in Perth, Western Australia in 2023, connecting education providers with international education agents from across the globe, Business Events Perth has announced.
The conference is set to attract upward of 300 delegates to Western Australia, for a two-day networking and trade conference attended by the top international student recruitment agents, directly generating upwards of $935,000 for the Western Australian economy.
Business Events Perth partnering with Study Perth and the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, meant the bid garnered support from over 16 education and student affairs organisations nationally. The support of 26 Western Australian education providers who attended this year’s ICEF Australia and New Zealand conference in Adelaide has contributed immensely to the favourable decision for Perth.
Minister for international education Hon David Templeman MLA said the bid win directly reflects our State’s leading environment for international education. “With our world-class universities, strong economy, a wealth of job opportunities and desirable lifestyle, Western Australia is a study destination like no other. We have long welcomed students from across the globe to our State, so this is a great opportunity for our world-class education facilities to get in front of international education agencies and discuss our capability to support incoming students with employment opportunities, real-world skills and career outcomes.”
Study Perth CEO Derryn Belford says the ICEF Australia and New Zealand conference is a fantastic opportunity for Western Australia’s education facilities.“Perth is renowned for cutting-edge educational facilities and an ideal lifestyle for students, which we are proud to share with students from around the world.”
“With so much recent investment in our state’s education sector, including the current development of the Edith Cowan University City campus, we want to provide the best possible opportunities for students from around the world to experience living, studying and working in Western Australia.”
