About this Workshop

There is no comparable event in terms of size and opportunity anywhere in the world – the ICEF Berlin Workshop is the leading international education focused networking forum and a must-attend event for all industry professionals.

Berlin workshop participants may attend various seminars, expert panels, and presentations each providing valuable insights into the latest trends and research affecting international education. In addition, workshop attendees benefit from numerous informal networking opportunities including lunches, coffee breaks, a cocktail reception and an official gala dinner. These social events give participants the chance to make further contacts and extend business relationships on a more personal level.

The ICEF Berlin Workshop is the most comprehensive and cost-effective way to keep up with industry developments, share ideas with peers and extend existing networks through meeting top international education professionals, face-to-face, in one convenient location.

About this Workshop

The event enables educators, service providers and work & travel organisations to hold up to 40 pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings with quality student recruitment agents, as well as with other educators and service providers from around the globe. These appointments are each 25 minutes in duration and serve the dual objectives of meeting new contacts and maintaining existing relationships. The workshop programme also includes meals, options for refreshment breaks and evening functions which offer further networking opportunities.

PROPOSAL FORM for FAM Tours and Receptions / Berlin


FAM Tours & Receptions

Agent familiarisation (FAM) tours and receptions are excellent ways for you to gain exposure and promote your institution and / or association to workshop registered agents.

FAM tours allow you to take advantage of the large number of agents attending the workshop and attract them to visit your institution, campus and region. Effective FAM tours enable agents to increase their product knowledge and bring back first hand experience to potential students.


FAM Tour guidelines:

  • FAM tour organisers may determine all logistics, conditions and costs associated with their tour, including which workshop participants are accepted to join, and which are not.
  • ICEF will not get involved in the organisation of FAM tours, but simply ensure relevancy for workshop participants as well as an equal representation of tours to all delegates.
  • All delegates interested in attending FAM tours will be asked to make direct contact with the tour organiser. Organisers are responsible for confirming or declining acceptance directly with participants.
  • FAM tour organisers wishing to promote their tour through ICEF are required to submit a proposal. All proposals are subject to approval by ICEF.
  • FAM tours may only be offered outside of workshop related activities and times.
  • Only organisations attending the workshop may meet and host other workshop participants. We do not wish to encourage non-registered institutions to access and benefit from meeting potential business partners that workshop registered organisations have paid to meet.

Reception guidelines:

Receptions allow you to host agents in a memorable way while reinforcing your brand. Inviting the agents that you wish to target gives you the chance to make meaningful and focused connections in a relaxed and fun environment.

  • Reception organisers may determine all logistics, conditions and costs associated with their event, including which workshop participants and other business partners are accepted to join, and which are not.
  • ICEF will not get involved in the organisation of receptions, but simply ensure relevancy for workshop participants as well as an equal representation of receptions to all delegates.
  • All workshop participants interested in attending a reception will be asked to make direct contact with the reception organiser. Organisers are responsible for confirming or declining acceptance directly with participants.
  • Reception organisers wishing to promote their event through ICEF are requested to provide information as outlined on the ICEF website.
  • Receptions may only be offered outside of workshop related activities and times.
  • Only organisations attending the workshop may meet and host other workshop participants. We do not wish to encourage non-registered institutions to access and benefit from meeting potential business partners that workshop registered organisations have paid to meet.

Promotion

Once your proposal has been accepted by ICEF, we will promote your event to assist you in attracting the quantity and variety of agents desired.

Your FAM tour or reception will be listed in this section of the website along with your contact details, hyperlinks and / or promotional materials. ICEF will also promote your event to all attending agents once their registration has been approved, as well as in numerous follow-up communications prior to the workshop.
