AC EXPO 2020

The 2020 AC EXPOS will be the 7th edition of the Study in Australia & New Zealand student fairs, as with previous years, the fairs will be heavily promoted to Brazilian students wanting to study abroad. The event will attract student looking for High School, English, VET, Undergrad, Postgrad & PhD programmes.

About the event

In 2013 Vinicius Barreto, AC Australian Centre CEO & co-founder, saw the need for an education fair focused on Australia & New Zealand. While other fairs being held in Brazil were either multi-destination or focused on destinations such the UK, Canada and the US at the time there were no Australia and New Zealand education fairs.

AC sort to partner with a company that specialises in running education events and found that FPP EDU Media would be the best fit for their fairs. AC had attended FPP’s Student Fairs as an exhibitor and found the organisation and quality of the students to be excellent.

August 2014 was set for the first AC Expo organised by AC Australian Centre in partnership with FPP, Austrade and Education New Zealand attended and supported the event.
