2020 EAIE Conference & Exhibition rescheduled to 13–16 October

2020 EAIE Conference & Exhibition rescheduled to 13–16 October Barcelona 2020

The 32nd Annual EAIE Conference and Exhibition, taking place in Barcelona, has been rescheduled to 13–16 October 2020. The date change is due to the rescheduling of another event at our 2020 conference venue, Fira Barcelona, as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

We understand that moving the EAIE Conference dates may affect your plans and we are working hard to limit the impact. Together with our exhibition and hotel partners, we have been working closely to ensure a smooth and efficient transfer of all existing bookings to the new event dates.

As you will be aware, the COVID-19 outbreak has already greatly impacted the higher education sector, with the closure of universities around the world. As the host of Europe’s largest international higher education event, the EAIE is also a member of the event industry which has seen the cancellation and postponement of many international events in the past weeks. Within the wider international higher education community, this has led to the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 NAFSA conference and postponement of the 2020 APAIE conference. While the COVID-19 outbreak presents unique challenges, we are taking inspiration from our Barcelona conference theme and remain committed to ‘forging creative pathways’.

Preparations remain underway for the same high-quality and interactive conference programme that you have come to expect from the EAIE. The finalised programme will be live in early June and registration for EAIE Barcelona 2020 will open Wednesday 17 June. We will continue to communicate any new information and look forward to seeing you in Barcelona at the 2020 EAIE Conference and Exhibition.
