Networking at AIEC

Good networks are the secret to a great career, and at AIEC there are different ways in which you can meet new people or reconnect with acquaintances.

See who’s attending

The app will go live two weeks before the conference. This is where you’ll be able to see who’s attending. Please select 'Attendees' to see the list of participants. From here you can send them a message or request an appointment.

Get involved with the IEAA networks

If you are new to the international education sector, or this is your first time attending AIEC, we highly encourage you to visit the IEAA booth in the Expo to connect with people who share the same interests as you.

To find out more about IEAA networks, please visit the IEAA website.

Host or attend a Braindate

Braindate is a topic-driven peer-learning and knowledge-sharing experience. It is an opportunity to make meaningful connections and have interesting conversations with people who share the same interests as you.

As a delegate, you have the opportunity to create your braindate (or others to join) or you can join someone else’s braindate. Just check out the Braindate topic market which launches two weeks before the conference!

This year, all braindates will be in person, and we’re extending the hours so you can book braindates from Tuesday 1pm to Friday 12pm.
