OUR STORY

EduTECH is an annual event that has been running for over 8 years and attracts over 10,000 people annually with 3 full days of professional development, including pre-event masterclasses, parallel conference streams, roundtables and breakout sessions.


EduTECH brings together ALL of education, including pre-school, school, tertiary and higher Ed, workplace learning and continued adult education for the BIGGEST expo and congress in Asia Pacific.


The event has become so popular that we have grown to include the Learn@Work event for training and development managers, and the EduBUILD stream for educational buildings and infrastructure.


Delegates attend EduTECH’s International Congress to learn and be inspired by world-leading education experts; past speakers included Sir Ken Robinson, Pasi Sahlberg and Prime Minister Julia Gillard.


Supported and sponsored by all the major players including the Department of Education, and major technology companies including Microsoft, Google for Education and Apple, plus new smaller EdTech start-up business in our innovation precinct, EduTECH offers free visitors over 100 hours of FREE professional development on the expo floor.


Now also in Africa, Asia and the Philippines, EduTECH is a globally recognized Expo and Conference in education, providing world-class professional development specifically for Schools, Government & Education System leaders, Tertiary / Higher Education, Workplace Learning, Librarians, ICT Managers and Building and Construction.
