Come to the ACPET Conference 2016: Connecting Knowledge, Skills and Futures through Innovation
Mark your 2016 diary now for the ACPET 2016 National Conference and Asia Pacific International Education Forum (APIEF) to be held on Hobart's spectacular waterfront at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart from Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th August 2016. Overlooking the Hobart Harbour and Constitution Dock, the hotel is just steps from popular attractions like Salamanca, Battery Point and the Central Business District, but intimate enough to ensure a perfectly relaxing experience.
Enjoy the comfort, space and facilities of one of Hobart’s largest hotels. Work out in the state-of-the-art fitness centre or enjoy a rejuvenating dip in the heated indoor pool or relax in the sauna. Meet for drinks in The Atrium Lounge or reserve a table at the fashionable Restaurant Tasman, where magnificent harbour views meet contemporary cuisine.
As in previous years ACPET will be offering discounted accommodation rates when you register to ACPET’s National Conference and/or APIEF.
An impressive line-up of speakers and exhibitors from both global and domestic tertiary education markets will be invited to facilitate the exploration of ideas, benchmarks and current practices.
Discover Tasmania and Hobart
Why not incorporate the ACPET National Conference and APIEF into a mid-year getaway and explore Hobart and discover what Tasmania has to offer? There are attractions for everyone. History enthusiasts can visit the many World Heritage areas and explore the arts and culture of Tasmania, while outdoors or adventurous folk can take in nature and wildlife, parks and gardens, national parks and the wilderness or take scenic flights and cruises. Foodies can enjoy the fresh produce and locally made wines and liqueurs, and explore local shopping and markets.
Save the dates as we hope to see you there!
