Studies reveal that there are five main reasons why people attend conferences: to learn; to be inspired; to meet like-minded people and network; to solicit business; and the location.
The APEN International Conference, held bi-annually, is an international meeting for rural advisory practitioners, researchers and academics who combine the best extension research and practice from developing and developed countries. A wonderful opportunity to share knowledge and improve extension.
The conference usually rotates between regions and is run by a local APEN Conference committee.
The GFRAS/APEN International Conference was held in Northern Queensland in September 2017 with the theme: Facilitating Balanced Change for Rural and Urban Communities. Click on the Conference link for more details.
