Reasons to host the OEGlobal conference

OEGlobal 2024 will be hosted from 13 to 15 November in Brisbane, Australia, by a collective of organisations, the University of Southern Queensland (UniSQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the State Library of Queensland (SLQ)

OEGlobal23 was co-hosted by NorQuest College in Edmonton, Canada. NorQuest was the first Community College to host the event during which 417 registered in-person attendees came from 29 globally distributed countries.

For example, the total economic impact of the OEGlobal 2023 conference on the City of Edmonton, Canada, was US$ 627,246 (C$ 854,130).
