Hobart is hosting one of the largest conferences ever to be held in Tasmania this week, the Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) 2017.

AIEC is considered the leading event on the international education calendar in Australia.

This is the first time Hobart has hosted the event, which has 1,250 delegates attending the conference from 10-13 October at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart.

The conference program features world leading experts, unique social events and an exhibition, all hosted in and around the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart on the waterfront.

The conference is the major opportunity each year for international education practitioners, teaching staff, researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders to learn about major industry trends and development and to network with Australian and international colleagues.

Approximately 15-20 per cent of attendees come from overseas.

September to November is a bumper time for business events in Tasmania, and this year we have over 40 national and international conferences being hosted during this period.

AIEC demonstrates Tasmania’s ability to host significant and large conferences of over 1000 delegates in our beautiful capital city, Hobart.
