Take a look at what our attendees said about their experience at The PIE Live events in 2022 and 2023.

I hadn't realised we needed a PIE Live Australia until it arrived. It is a great way to for the sector in this part of the world to reconnect part way through the year. It's small enough to be intimate yet big enough to get some fresh perspectives and fantastic networking. I'm a convert!

Ailsa Lamont Co-Founder International Education Sustainability Group

The best general International Education event I've been to in a decade. The right number and breadth of participants. The right scope and length of conference. New and interesting speakers and themes. I'm probably going to skip one of the 'Big 4' conferences to make space to ensure this is on my calendar next year.

Kent Anderson Deputy Vice Chancellor University of Newcastle

It's been amazing to listen to lots of different ideas and have the time and the headspace to reflect on not what I do but what is possible to do.

Donna Cook Deputy Chair of the English Australia Board ACU English Language Centre

They create events with a perfect balance of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and fun. (They also do a great job of facilitating meetings at their events that lead to real business outcomes for startups in the sector.) Again adding incredible real value to startups.

Shane Dillon Founder and CEO Cturtle

What an incredible experience it has been at the #PIELive23 Australia!

Dimity Huckel Director Studymove

The PIE conference was a transformational experience. Thank you for your hard work, professionalism and for re-igniting the spark to see things and do things differently and better for so many of us.

Darryl Blumel Operations Manager ELICOS TAFE Queensland English Language College

I had a very enjoyable time at the event, met many interesting people, and valued the welcoming and inclusive approach of your team. This type of approach is not universal at conference events, so extremely welcome.

Fran Baxter Executive Director Value Learning

No question as to why The PIE Live is a staple of the #intled annual calendar. One of my personal highlights this year was reconnecting with former Coventry University colleagues. Great to see friends old and new, and amazing job as always The PIE Team!

Des Cutchey International Development UCAS

This PIE Live (London) was one of the best events in HEI’s sector I have experienced. It covered everything we need for this industry through seminars, panel discussions, networking and a great Gala dinner bringing everyone under one umbrella.

Golam Mortuza Director of Compliance AHZ Associates

PIE Live is the pre-eminent B2B event for professionals in international student recruitment. It is our best opportunity in the year to engage directly, one-to-one, in one place with numerous key decision-makers.

Juhanie Cheung VP of Partner Relations ApplyBoard

One of the greatest events on the calendar. Really this event has established itself within two years as the go to event for the sector. Well done all at The PIE for creating this.

Henry Tolley Vice President PSI Services LLC

The PIE is now my favourite connecting place in the industry.

Saverio Monti Head of Direct Sales CATS Global Schools

It was my first time attending The PIE Live conference, and it did not disappoint. Learning from and listening to sector leaders in international education from across the globe has been a beneficial experience. Encouraging people to hand in the lanyards at the end for recycling and sustainability was the icing on the cake.

Lena Abu-elfailat International Higher Education Management Specialist The Manchester Metropolitan University

Just returned from two days of non-stop learning, connecting and pie-eating at The PIE Live Europe conference! It was an absolute pleasure to meet so many #industry #colleagues and discuss the burning #questions that keep us up at night. From the future of #education to the latest technological advancements, we covered it all. But what stood out the most was the sense of #community and #passion that everyone brought to the table. I am already looking forward to the next one and can’t wait to see what’s in store.
