We are thrilled to welcome you to our first OpenApply Admissions Conference in the Americas! The event will be held at our Americas headquarters in Portland, Oregon on June 9 & 10, 2023.

The conference theme is ‘Bridging the Gap between Inquiry and Enrollment’, and there will be an emphasis on exploring the challenges, solutions, and strategies around marketing and recruiting prospective students.

Navigating the complex landscape of admissions requires consideration of critical milestones, from discovery and inquiry, to application and enrollment. The goal is for these milestones to interconnect seamlessly and allow families to smoothly complete their admissions journey. This journey is fuelled by a deep understanding of how to proactively communicate with and nurture prospective families, as well as best-practice use of the right tools for the task at hand.

Why Should You Join Us?

Since 2013, OpenApply has been working to fill the professional development gap in the admissions world in preparation for these increasing challenges. We are proud to have welcomed over 1000 participants from 600 international schools to our global conferences over the past decade!

Our 2023 conference will focus on Bridging the Gap between Inquiry and Enrollment, by

  • Focusing on recruitment to meet your enrollment goals
  • Clearly defining and plotting your admissions roadmap
  • Empowering alignment between your Admissions & Marketing functions
  • Communicating your school ethos to attract passionate students with a shared vision

Join us in Portland to network with leading admissions professionals, share best practices, and learn proven strategies to help your school meet and surpass the above objectives.
