2024 Annual Conference & Expo

Join us in New Orleans, Louisiana for the NAFSA 2024 Annual Conference & Expo held May 28–31. Be a part of the most diverse, comprehensive, and exciting international education conference and exposition. Learn, network, and connect with peers and experts dedicated to "Resilience. Renewal. Community."

The 2024 Annual Conference Committee invites you to submit a poster proposal for the NAFSA 2024 Annual Conference & Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana by December 6, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. (EST). Explore the ten poster fair themes across all knowledge communities and connect to the annual conference theme. You may find that your topic fits within several themes. In these cases, we encourage you to submit your proposal to the theme that best reflects your intended audience. We invite practitioners, researchers, and graduate students from all types of institutions, as well as partners that support international education, to imagine, create, and design your posters. 

The NAFSA poster fair at the annual conference is a learning experience and noncommercial. If you are interested in sharing a service, consider submitting a case study about it in partnership with an educational institution.
