Co-hosts

Since 2006 the conference has been jointly presented by IDP and the International Education Association of Australia (IEAA).

IDP underwrites the event, retains the intellectual property of the conference and manages all the logistics, but the event is co-branded IDP and IEAA. The AIEC Steering Committee is composed of representatives from both IDP and IEAA, who ensure the professional development and networking opportunities offered each year cater to the needs of its clients, members and partners.
