The European Association for International Education (EAIE) Annual Conference 2012 brought over 4,300 university representatives to Dublin, Ireland, the land of a thousand welcomes, to explore the theme of 'Rethinking Education and Reshaping Economies'. The conference was a great success, with ample opportunity for interactive discussions, sessions, meetings, workshops and networking events. ETS had a booth and delivered four educational panel sessions complementing the theme of the conference.
