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 biennially, 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.
