WA to showcase study potential at international education conference

Western Australia as a world-class study destination will be on show this week at one of Australasia’s biggest international education events – the 2023 International Consultants for Education Fairs (ICEF) Australia and New Zealand Agent (ANZA) conference, which gets underway in Perth today.

As the host city for the ICEF ANZA 2023 conference, Perth will welcome education providers and recruitment agents from across the globe to the event.

Running from 12 to 14 April, the three-day event is expected to attract more than 230 international student recruitment agents and 150 plus providers from around 49 countries.

WA’s International Education Minister, David Templeman will welcome delegates to Perth today at a reception event sponsored by StudyPerth, Business Events Perth and Tourism WA.

“I look forward to welcoming hundreds of agents and providers to beautiful Perth for the ICEF ANZA 2023 conference.  This is by far the largest number of agents ever onsite at ICEF ANZA,” said Minister Templeman.

“This event is an excellent opportunity to make connections, exchange ideas and explore new trends that can drive the growth of the international education sector worldwide.

“Our partnerships with global industries, many of which have a presence in Western Australia, means we are well-positioned to provide international students with industry knowledge, research opportunities and the connections needed to access global job markets.

“In the last year, we have welcomed back thousands of students to our campuses and classrooms – a number we are committed to growing.”

As part of ICEF ANZA 2023, the State Government is partnering with StudyPerth to deliver a series of familiarisation activities for visiting delegates.

Designed to showcase WA as a leading study destination, delegates will enjoy unique tourism activities such as a gourmet beach barbeque at sunset, Fremantle Prison and a trip to Rottnest, as well as meeting and visiting the campuses of WA education and training providers.

Western Australia’s successful bid for the ICEF ANZA 2023 conference was secured through a collaboration between the State Government, StudyPerth and Business Events Perth.
