The APAIE Annual Conference and Exhibition attracts around 200 exhibitors and 1500 delegates each year. The Conference brings together international education policy-makers, practitioners and experts from across the globe to the Asia Pacific to network, improve professional skills and learn about new developments in international education. 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. APAIE's event in 2017, with 334 pavilions, 86 sessions and 176 speakers, was attended by 1,700 participants from 45 countries. With the incredible pace of change showing no sign of abating, and the vibrancy and dynamism that typifies the Asia-Pacific, participation in APAIE 2018 is essential for everyone involved in international education. The 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.
