Welcome to the AISA Conference

7 - 9 October 2023

The AISA Conference is for educators, leaders, co-professionals, sponsors and exhibitors who share a passion for international education in Africa. The 2023 AISA Conference is a members-only learning event and will take place from 07 - 09 October 2023 at the International School of Kenya (ISK) in Nairobi, Kenya. Pre-conference sessions will also be available from 04 - 06 October 2023 at the ISK and the Trademark Hotel.

2023 AISA Conference Theme: Umoja: Oneness through Community – Connections – Stories

Throughout the conference, international consultants and experts from our international schools will provide opportunities to explore innovations in teaching, learning and leading that are transforming schools and their communities. The objective of the conference is to create an inspiring professional learning event for attendees that celebrates AISA's united and shared sense of community, where we highlight the diverse 'stories' that make our close-knit community what it is.
The professional learning, affinity groups, discovery workshops, exhibition and social events will reinforce the sense of belonging for which AISA conferences are renowned.

AISA schools registering 10 delegates or more will receive a 10% discount on the total group registration cost.

We have designed deep learning experiences in our Pre-Conference Workshops, Deep Dives and Institutes, and opportunities to explore something new in our Discovery Workshops. The Affinity Groups unite those with shared identities and amplify voices. Add the AISA Associate Members' exhibition, endless networking opportunities and the Gala Dinner; this is a conference where everyone belongs.

AISA Conference delegates can still benefit from negotiated accommodation rates at the Tribe and Trademark Hotels. October is "high-season" in Nairobi and hotel availability is limited. Book your room today to secure your stay!


The conference will offer over 50 in-depth learning institutes, deep dives and workshops over 3 days. We have invited some of the world’s leading experts in a variety of issues and topics that will support your work in international education.


AISA conferences are well known for their strong emphasis on community. Built into the programme are opportunities for you to network with your colleagues, peers, our associate members and thought leaders in international education.


AISA offers Associate Members the exclusive opportunity to participate in our annual conferences to connect with member schools and to showcase their products and services. Conference sponsorship opportunities are also available.
