The PIE Live is a new dynamic, online virtual event from The PIE News team offering in-depth learnings in areas that are critical to the future development and vitality of the sector, and maximising intelligence on best practice that we gain from our PIEoneer Awards work.

It is being held online from Monday 5th - Thursday 8th October, after The PIEoneer Awards online on Friday 2nd October, so that delegates can take advantage of joining both events.

Attendees will gain exclusive insights from panels of speakers on four content tracks, hear the latest country-focused discussions around international education positioning and policy, and learn directly from PIEoneer Awards finalists in 18 compelling categories.

Throughout our online event, there will be live networking via our sophisticated AI-powered platform and a virtual exhibition, so you can make new connections with colleagues and suppliers, and chat to old friends across the globe while we’re unable to travel.

Come along and benefit from networking with our unrivalled global, targeted delegate list of those pro-actively engaged in delivering improving outcomes in international education.

If you're interested in sponsoring or virtually exhibiting at The PIE Live, email or call her on +44 7734 939549 to find out more.
