About this Workshop

The ICEF Moscow Workshop is the region’s most renowned international education networking event. Providing educators and service providers with the opportunity to meet the best agents from Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus, this workshop is a must attend for institutions seeking to increase international student enrolments from this important market.

In 2018 the ICEF Moscow Workshop welcomed a total of 345 participants from 29 countries. During the workshop, educators and service providers conducted one-to-one business appointments with representatives of 150 education agencies.

Acknowledging the number of institutions who regularly participate in this workshop, ICEF screens and qualifies new agencies each year.

Before agents can attend ICEF events they must pass a rigorous selection and screening process. Known as the most stringent quality test in the industry, agents must provide current, verifiable references and prove an active interest in partnering with international educators and service providers.

In addition to scheduled meetings and networking events, participants may also attend seminars covering a wide range of topics, including visa processing, student mobility trends and specific market intelligence.

The ICEF Moscow Workshop is the most efficient and effective way to meet and establish partnerships with quality student recruitment professionals.

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 event registered agents.

FAM tours allow you to take advantage of a large number of agents attending the event 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.
