However, despite the differences, there are many factors that can unite the members of Asia-Pacific.

Due to unforeseen demand, the exhibition booths for APAIE 2019 are sold out. We are now working to allocate booth locations on the exhibition floor to bookings already received in order of payment made. Should any of these not meet the deadline for payment, their booth/s will be released.

We will continue to take bookings for exhibition booths for APAIE 2019 with bookings made from 24 Oct 2018 going on a waitlist. As booths become available, those on the waitlist will be contacted in order of booking made, and then an invoice will be issued.

APAIE apologises for this early action to waitlist exhibition bookings. The 2019 exhibition has several more booths than 2018, so this is quite unexpected. We will do what we can to accommodate as many exhibitors as feasible.

Please contact the APAIE Secretariat with any queries or if you would like to explore other options to have a presence at APAIE 2019 as we still have some networking areas available for sponsorship: APAIE-Secretariat@unimelb.edu.au

8c3c891ede2cee2f9cb692b483ab7433The Asia-Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE) was established in Seoul, South Korea in 2004 by a Founding Committee consisting of thirteen university representatives from across the Asia Pacific region, and has since expanded to become a thriving association. APAIE aims to encourage greater cooperation between institutions, to enrich and support international programmes, activities and exchanges, and to promote the value of international education across the region and beyond. In doing so, APAIE devotes itself to the principles of mutual respect, diversity and collective progress.

The APAIE Conference and Exhibition brings together international education policy-makers, practitioners and experts from across the globe to the Asia-Pacific region to network, improve professional skills and learn about new developments in international education. The APAIE Conference and Exhibition debuted in 2006 with 400 delegates. It now attracts 2,000 delegates and over 200 exhibitors. The growing attendance each year at the Conference reflects the burgeoning interest in the region and recognition of the Asia Pacific’s important role in international education.
