You will explore academic research into TESOL, multilingual experiences, online delivery, and the transformation of classrooms from international experts. You will also explore insights and learnings from veterans in the industry, gaining deeper knowledge and tips into reaching higher levels of employment within the International Education Sector.

You will also be able to network and share your transformative experiences to other delegates at functions during the event through our online platform, or face-to-face in our workshops and presentations.

Attendees who come to the conference will experience a 6-star venue at Doltone House, overlooking Darling Harbour in Sydney. You will also be able to celebrate your transformative journey with others on the 6th of May at our Awards and Cocktail Hour.
