Explore upskilling opportunities at EduTECH 2023


EduTECH 2023, Australia’s largest education conference and trade show, is set to return to Melbourne this year with the aim of delivering a bigger and better event than ever before.

The two-day conference will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, with pre-event workshops happening on 23 August, and a full program and expo floor on 24-25 August that will showcase the latest technology and trends, and the most cutting-edge solutions impacting the education sector right now.

The event is widely recognised as the perfect opportunity to earn qualified PD and as the largest networking opportunity for educators in Australia, offering attendees working across K-12, tertiary professional development, and education infrastructure development, the opportunity to participate in ‘one giant festival for education’.
