The PIE Live is a dynamic, virtual event bringing together thought leaders from around the world who are innovating in the international education industry.

It is being held online from Monday 5th - Thursday 8th October, after The PIEoneer Awards online on Friday 2nd October, so that delegates can take advantage of joining both events.

Each day, learning and conversation will be focused around one of our four central content tracks that reflect some of the pressing issues in our sector:

  • Employability
  • Marketing to Gen Z and peer referral
  • Sustainability
  • Digital technology innovation

Each day will also include a country focus panel so you can stay up-to-date with all the latest news and trends from the US, Canada, Australia and UK. 

Plus, join our exclusive insights sessions to learn about The PIEoneer Awards 2020 finalists and their innovations. 

You will be able to visit virtual exhibitor booths and connect with other delegates through sophisticated AI-powered networking throughout the event!
