The PIE Live: Australia

We are really excited to be bringing The PIE Live to Australia for the first time in 2023!

25-26 July, at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Our two-day, in-person event will enable you to build your knowledge and network in the APAC region. An intimate event of 400 people, where you can network in a manageable way to get maximum value out of the connections you make. Return to your desk armed with new resources and contacts, and enough energy to be able to follow up on them straight away.

The PIE Live is a physical realisation of The PIE’s sector expertise and global community - we are a leading, independent, global media platform for the international education industry. We bring a unique mix of industry professionals together, spanning higher ed, vocational training, student counselling and advising, ed tech and service providers.

Our sessions are dynamic and engaging - max session length 45 mins, max 30 mins panel discussions before we take audience questions via the Slido app. The expo area is central to the event layout, to ensure exhibitors, delegates and speakers have multiple opportunities to meet and chat in a relaxed environment.

The PIE Live Australia will feature a staple of all our events - our Student Roundtable - where locally based international students talk freely to delegates about their experiences. We develop the debate about future trends and challenges ahead, and will be showcasing the amazing work being done by the sector - Australia’s largest service export!

Tickets include:

> Power panel debates offering expert insights on current hot topics in global education – max 30 mins discussion before audience questions
> Insight accelerator sessions
> International student roundtable session
> Extensive networking opportunities via pre-scheduled and on the spot meetings 
> All day access to Expo area/coffee lounge
> Drinks reception and conference dinner included
> Badge scanning available to all delegates

We are expecting a minimum of 400 delegates representing higher ed, edtech, private education and government, predominantly from Australia, New Zealand and Asia, with some also from Europe and North America.
