The Washington International Education Conference:the original conference for international and federal government relations, market intelligence, and actionable advice for international education professionals.
The Washington International Education Council believes that international education exchange plays a vital role in building bridges between cultures throughout the world. In increasingly uncertain times, direct communication between American and international higher education institutions and embassy officials, NGO leaders, and regional experts has never been more important.
Since 2001, the Washington International Education Council has assisted universities, language programs and independent schools with international student enrollment management services, organizes educational conferences, and supports the development of new programs for institutions and sponsoring agencies.
Our flagship event, the Washington International Education Conference, is the only conference dedicated to advancing access to key embassy personnel and the latest trends in international student recruitment, admissions, and campus life. Join our conference in February 2020 and walk away with practical knowledge and actionable advice tips that can immediately grow your enrollments and better serve your international students.

The Washington International Education Council recognizes the vital role international education exchange plays in the world today. As our world grows smaller with greater interdependence it is more important than ever to establish linkages between people of different countries, regardless of cultural differences. WIEC builds new bridges and fosters existing relationships between institutions throughout the world.
