Perth scores international education networking conference for 2023

The 15th annual ICEF Australia and New Zealand conference will be held in Perth, Western Australia in 2023, announced Business Events Perth.

The conference is set to attract upward of 300 delegates to Western Australia, for a two-day networking and trade conference attended by international student recruitment agents, directly generating upwards of A$935,000 (US$645,000) for the Western Australian economy.

Business Events Perth partnered with Study Perth and the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, which meant that the bid garnered support from over 16 education and student affairs organisations nationally.

The support of 26 Western Australia education providers who attended this year’s ICEF Australia and New Zealand conference in Adelaide also contributed to the favourable decision for Perth.

Business Events Perth CEO Gareth Martin said the win is a step in the right direction for the recovery of the business event industry and also an important strategic sector for Western Australia.

“The ICEF ANZA 2023 conference is the perfect platform to showcase the strength of our State’s international education sector and hands-on student services, on the global stage.”

“Not only will this trade conference support the business event industry in Perth, it will also help to diversify the State’s economy through the ongoing benefits of hosting quality student recruitment agencies from around the world attracting future students to Western Australia.”
