No NZIEC in 2021
As you will be aware, the international education sector has been significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Given the impact that the pandemic has had on the sector, the resources required to host NZIEC, and the cost for delegates to attend the conference, we have decided not to hold NZIEC in 2021.
Although it may be disappointing, this decision provides clarity for our conference partners, exhibitors and delegates and enables us to focus our resources on supporting the industry’s recovery.
While NZIEC will not go ahead this year, we are planning a range of engagements across the sector. This includes our regular meetings with peak bodies and regional partners as well as specific hui to progress the International Education Recovery Plan.
We’re also exploring other ways in which we can bring the sector together to discuss shared priorities and challenges without the costs involved with NZIEC. We are in the initial stages of planning and will be able to advise further details later in the year. Stay tuned to E-News for the latest information – you can sign up for it here.
