NAFSA 2020 Annual Conference & Expo

Join peers and experts at the premier global professional learning and networking event for all international educators and organizations that support international education for the NAFSA 2020 Annual Conference & Expo in St. Louis, Missouri.

Make Connections that Will Last Your Entire Career

At the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo you can share knowledge, gain advice, and draw inspiration from the experiences and outlooks of your global colleagues. Join both seasoned educators and early-career professionals and grow your network within the field of international education. Networking opportunities unique to the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo are the leading reason attendees say they return each year.

The chance to make connections starts months in advance of the conference. Once the mobile app and online planner launch each spring, you can create a custom schedule and begin reaching out to fellow attendees to set up meetings and exchange contact info. Continue the conversation while on-site, meeting one-on-one at a poster fair or networking center to spark discussion and learn about innovative ideas. Connect with your fellow international education professionals every day at our insightful conference sessions, in dialogue with our Spotlight Presenters, at the NAFSA Career Center, checking in with the NAFSA Pavilion, and throughout the Expo Hall. Altogether, the networking opportunities at the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo yield professional and personal dividends that last throughout the year.


"The NAFSA conference is the perfect place to meet colleagues (new and known), learn about trends in international education, make connections among various areas of international education practice, and get the energy that comes from being disconnected from the day-to-day for a little while!"
