AIEA Participant Lists 

AIEA sends out lists of registered conference participants a week after each registration deadline to all registered attendees. As requested by past participants, these lists do not include contact information. All registrants who opt-in will receive a hard-copy participant directory on-site. It is against AIEA policy for any participant information to be used for mass unsolicited emails.  

AIEA Participant Scam Alert 

It has been brought to our attention that scam artists, fraudulent companies, and vendors not contracted by the conference have been targeting AIEA exhibitors and participants. Be careful of companies calling posing as vendors for the event. Some scams include housing, directory listings, and onsite services.

If you are contacted by any outside company you find suspicious or are unsure whether they are a legitimate authorized vendor for this event, please contact AIEA at [email protected] immediately, and if possible include any e-mail communication you received from this vendor.

  • Please note that in order to be eligible for member Conference Registration pricing, your membership application must be both received and processed by the deadline for that price category.* 
  • Please allow up to 10 business days for AIEA to process your membership application after your payment has been received.
  • AIEA highly recommends paying via credit card during conference season to facilitate faster processing and increasing the chances of receiving registration discounts.

Note on COVID-19

Please know that the Association of International Education Administrators is carefully monitoring the situation with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). To date, we do not anticipate any disruptions for the conference. Knowledge and news about 2019-nCoV continue to evolve; the most up-to-date information and recommendations can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) here. While health officials around the world are monitoring 2019-nCoV, the risk of contracting novel coronavirus in the U.S. remains extremely low. Seasonal influenza (flu) and respiratory disease activity present a more prevalent concern in the US. Participants are urged to take customary precautions to prevent the spread of any disease.

All participants will be required to show proof of vaccination before registering for the conference.
