A dynamic daytime event bringing together thought leaders from around the world who are innovating in the international education industry.

Held the day before The PIEoneer Awards so that delegates can take advantage of attending both events over a 2-day period.

Learning and conversation will be focused around four central content tracks that reflect some of the pressing issues in our sector:

  • Employability
  • Sustainability
  • Digital technology innovation
  • Marketing to Gen Z and peer referral

The content tracks will run as plenaries for all delegates and include presentations and panel discussions by experts in the relevant fields. These will be followed by breakout, concurrent sessions that will enable delegates to explore each track in more depth and in smaller groups. These will include presentations from relevant PIEoneer Award 2020 finalists and speed showcases.

There will be an exhibition area, open during registration, coffee breaks and lunch, which will also enable informal networking opportunities.

We are expecting 200 delegates to attend.

Sustainability Track

The coronavirus crisis put the fragility of our planet into sharp focus and future-facing international educators need to be aware of how they can balance their offer of a global education and international community-building with concerns around the climate and carbon footprints. Experts will share institutional approaches or talk from their experience as informed consultants in this field.

Never has the power of technology to reach, engage, educate and transform the lives of students been so relevant. In this content track, we will hear from educators and experts and learn from them in terms of education technology’s now-vital creep into the mainstream of education and its impact within international education.
