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.

    “Always a great workshop, very well organised and very well attended. Amazing team and amazing organisation for the number of attendees, the size of the workshop, no other workshop can compete with ICEF Berlin. ICEF Berlin is really the place to be in our language industry.” - Giorgia Biccelli, LINGUAVIVA, Italy.

    “ICEF Berlin was great, especially the Study Destination Seminar. It was really useful for me, in particular the case study from the State of Victoria. I am so glad that our Malaysia Ministry officials were there, too. Agent quality was fantastic!” - Wai Cheng Lau, ELC English Language Company, Malaysia.

    “As a first time participant at an ICEF event and a new user of agents’ services, this workshop really exceeded my expectations. I can honestly say that each agent I interviewed was well-prepared and taught me something about agent partnerships. This event was also excellent for establishing contacts with other education institutions and I truly feel that I have started some lasting relationships. Lastly, as a first-timer, I found the mentor program extremely useful. I will definitely attend more agent workshops with ICEF.” - Nicole Wittenborg, Niels Brock Copenhagen Business College, Denmark.

    “Exceptional job managing a massive volume of people, locations, and events. This is my third ICEF event and I’m always impressed by how seamlessly the process runs given the enormous number of people involved. It is clear that the organization and facilitation is expertly handled.” - Monica Vitale, Marianapolis Preparatory School, USA.

    “ICEF Berlin 2016 was the first workshop for us. It has been hugely successful and I can’t thank the ICEF team enough. They helped and supported us a lot to launch the new school and the platform at ICEF Berlin was the best place for us to spread the news. We’re already full for 2017!” - Aoife Govern, Apollo Language Centre, Ireland.
