In the biggest economic meltdown in decades, international education faces tough challenges. How can we grow the international mobility of students and staff? Promote partnerships between countries and institutions? Help governments and industry create new strategies and global citizens for the future?

With more than 1,000 delegates from over 70 countries, Going Global has a fantastic range of exhibition and sponsorship opportunities on the ground, in print and online available. This conference puts your organisation at the heart of the debate, strengthening relationships with key decision makers in education, government and business. If you're interested in global education, you should be investing in 'Going Global'.

The conference will explore the trends and implications; explore models for change drawing on case studies from across the world; examine the barriers; and deliver frameworks for action across the following areas:

• Staff and student mobility
• Global partnerships
