The only ELT event you need to attend this year

Find out why

What is the theme this year?

The theme this year is “Power to the classroom!“. Are traditional classrooms and zoom classrooms future proof? If so should we keep calm and carry on or do we need a reset in our approach to maintain interest in live classroom events as a significant element in language learning? We will discuss this and much more during this exciting event.

Who is the InnovateELT conference for?

The InnovateELT conference is for you if you are passionate about the ELT industry and you are keen to be more involved in discussions about how to make a difference. The theme this year is “Power to the classroom!” and we are expecting professionals from all areas of ELT to join us in learning more about the future of the ELT classroom. Delegates can include (but are not limited to):


    • Language school managers
    • English as a foreign language teachers
    • Teacher trainers
    • EdTech professionals
    • Materials writers
    • Authors

What type of sessions will I be able to attend?

We aim to provide engaging sessions in a variety of formats. As an attendee of the InnovateELT conference, you will be able to attend four different types of sessions:

  • Dynamic workshops (45 minutes)
  • Demo lessons with real students (45 minutes)
  • Informative talks (30 minutes)
  • Mini plenaries (15 minutes)

The conference will have three pathways: language teaching, teacher training and leadership and management. There is something for everyone, regardless of your level of experience or role within ELT. By the end of the conference you will be buzzing with ideas and ready for Monday!

What else can I expect at the InnovateELT conference in 2024?

The InnovateELT conference is different to many other ELT conferences around the world. As well as providing inspiring sessions related to the world of English language teaching and learning, we also pay special attention to the people who have taken the time to join us (yes, you!).

As a attendee, you will be made to feel welcome and you will find connecting with other delegates is easy and hugely enjoyable. We encourage collaboration and we listen to our delegates as well and share our own thoughts.

You will be provided with plenty of opportunities to enjoy our sunny garden, as well as our spacious and modern classrooms. Snacks, coffee and tea will be available throughout the event to provide you with the well-needed fuel to keep you going. By the end of the conference you will feel like you have gathered plenty of ideas, activities and inspiration to take straight back into your own workplace. Join us, and find out for yourself!

Can I sponsor the InnovateELT conference?

If you have an ELT product or service that you would like to share, why not consider sponsoring the event? As a sponsor of the InnovateELT conference you will:

  • Improve brand awareness for your business
  • Interact directly with superusers and decision-makers
  • Showcase your product or idea to people from across the ELT industry

Can I present at the conference?

In January 2024 we will be inviting proposals for your chance to be a speaker at this event. We are looking for passionate ELT professionals with something to say about our industry. You don’t need to be an experienced conference speaker, but you do need to prove to us that you can deliver an insightful and engaging session. We are looking for proposals for the following:

– Dynamic workshops (45 minutes). We encourage the use of materials and group work in these sessions.
– Demo lessons (45 minutes total). We will provide the students. The session will be an observation of a class followed by discussion.
– Informative talks (30 minutes). The session will be a presentation using a screen and discussion. We are not offering promotional talks. 
– Mini plenaries (15 minutes). Your chance to speak your mind to all conference attendees! We will provide a microphone but there will be no visual aids. 

In particular, we are looking for proposals which reflect the theme this year (“Power to the classroom!”) and include practical ideas and/or a concrete vision of how we might be supporting learners in the coming years. They should reflect the value of live classroom learning, live zoom learning and the potential of AI and other technology to support or replace these modes. Do you think you have what it takes to be an ELT conference speaker? Call for papers coming soon.
