The APEN (Australasia-Pacific Extension Network) Conference, held biennially, is an international meeting for rural and community advisory practitioners, researchers, and academics who combine the best extension research and practice from developing and developed countries. Don't miss this unique opportunity to share knowledge, learn new skills and improve extension.

In September 2019, Darwin will play host to our conference for the very first time. Opening a pathway for South-East Asia practitioners, researchers, and academics to network and liaise with Australian and New Zealand extension professionals. An unmissable opportunity in an unforgettable destination.

There will be two optional pre-conference workshops on 11th September 10am-4pm: Fearless Facilitation and Great Group Dynamics and Communication Skills for All Professionals. You can register for these workshops without attending the conference. 

 Registration for the Conference will include the Welcome Reception, Field Trips, Dinner and the full two-day program. If you wish you may add a pre-conference workshop and/or additional dinner tickets.

 The conference theme is Extending Horizons: Extension's role in climate, rural industry, and community challenges.
