ANZA Workshop

As a destination-focussed workshop, ANZA provides a unique opportunity for Australian and New Zealand educators, sellers of youth travel including work and travel and service providers, to meet quality-screened agents (buyers). These agents collectively send tens of thousands of students to this region annually.

The 2014 ANZA Workshop was held at the Sydney Hilton (April 6-8) and hosted 432 participants from 313 organisations in 52 countries. The event enabled educators, work and travel, and service providers to conduct over 4 300 pre-scheduled meetings with 193 top-quality agents from 50 countries. Overall, this year’s workshop saw an increase of 10% of participating agents with 25% being first timers to an ICEF event.

ACPET was represented at the event, hosting a booth and conducting many face-to-face meetings with overseas education agents during the Workshop to promote and raise awareness of ACPET members. Overall, the overseas education agents displayed a real keenness to work with Australian institutions, with Indonesia, India and Brazil providing the largest representation. Education agents were also impressed with ACPET’s Online Catalogue as members information could be easily and readily be accessed.

The 2015 ANZA Workshop will be held April 28 – 30 in Auckland, New Zealand at the SKYCITY Auckland Conference Centre – ACPET will be present at this event. Further details will be available at
