In past years, the Australian Embassy usually hosts a networking reception for alumni in Chiang Mai. But in June 2019, a different approach was adopted – the career and education expo was organised during the day, followed by a networking reception. The expo adopted the standard approach of booths providing information on Australian universities as well as panel discussions. One discussion centered on alumni panelists sharing their experiences and feelings about the time they lived in Australia. More than 105 persons attended the expo and over 50 alumni attended the networking reception.
