Imagine EAIE 2016

While you might be thinking about tartans, haggis and where you’re going to stay for EAIE Glasgow 2015, preparations for EAIE 2016 have already begun. Where are we heading next? If you guessed Liverpool on Facebook, then you’ve guessed correctly! The EAIE is pleased to announce this incredible city as the home of the EAIE Annual Conference in 2016. Not only is Liverpool famously labelled the ‘pool of life’, its waterfront is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and it has a musical legacy that is unparalleled.

Join us in Liverpool from 13-16 September 2016 for the 28th Annual EAIE Conference where the theme is ‘Imagine…’. Imagine a world in which every student has the opportunity to gain international experience, developing the intercultural skills that will contribute to a truly sustainable global economy. Imagine a world in which our national, cultural and individual differences are celebrated and embraced by all. Imagine a world of equality, mutual understanding and peace. Can you imagine?

Teeming with talent and innovation and nicknamed ‘the world in one city’, Liverpool is the perfect location for 5000+ conference participants from over 90 countries to come together, network and get their creative juices flowing. From its long history as a commercial port to its worldwide reputation as the birthplace of The Beatles, Liverpool is a diverse city with definite bragging rights when it comes to its musical, cultural and sporting heritage. Not only was it deemed the ‘World Capital of Pop’, with more number one hits than any other city, Liverpool has a cutting edge arts scene and boasts the largest collection of museums and galleries in the UK outside of London.

If it’s been a while since your last visit, you may not even recognise the city following massive investments. Liverpool has notably reinvented itself over the last decade, having achieved the title of European Capital of Culture in 2008. Coinciding with the official opening ceremony for Capital of Culture was the grand opening of the ACC Liverpool, recognised as a fundamental part of boosting Liverpool’s image as a city. EAIE Liverpool 2016 participants will be welcomed to this magnificent venue, located on the famous River Mersey and voted the best UK conference centre for the past three years. Additionally, we’ll have the pleasure of utilising the brand new, state-of-the-art Exhibition Centre Liverpool, opening later this year.

Are you excited about all the things that EAIE Liverpool 2016 has to offer? Can you imagine the ways in which we can harness the power of international higher education to create a more interconnected world? Join us in Liverpool in 2016 and let’s imagine.
