Working closely with Study Gold Coast, The PIE Live: Australia endeavours to deliver another event filled to the brim with insight, networking and opportunities after its first in-person event in London in March, and The PIE Live: North America taking place in Toronto in October this year.
“Following our successful events in the UK and Canada in 2022, Australia is the natural, next destination for us to bring our conference to, given the industry’s importance and Australia’s commitment to a world-class student experience,” said Amy Baker, The PIE’s CEO.
The event will take place on July 25-26 2023, and will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
CEO of Study Gold Coast Alfred Slogrove said the event would “lead to new partnerships while attracting talent to our major and emerging industries”, beyond the “direct economic contribution” it would inject into the region’s economy.
“Australia is the natural, next destination for us”
“At the heart of the Gold Coast’s advancement is a thriving education and knowledge economy driven by our distinguished universities, innovation, and some of Australia’s leading education providers,” Slogrove said.
“Working together with the City of Gold Coast, Gold Coast Tourism Corporation (trading as Destination Gold Coast) and the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition centre optimises the opportunities for the benefit of many sectors and the wider Gold Coast community,” he continued.
“The Gold Coast offers a highly appealing destination for our event – first-class venues and accommodation, easy transport links and a beautiful coastal backdrop, which we feel confident our delegates, speakers and sponsors will all appreciate,” Baker added.
Slogrove concurred with Baker’s remarks, citing the “global education reputation” of the Gold Coast having “grown considerably over the past decade”.
