About this event

The United States and Canada are top study destinations with broad international appeal across all educational sectors. Each year, an increasing number institutions from the Americas turn to agents to help them boost international enrollments and increase the quality of student applicants. The best place to find top-quality agents focused primarily on the US and Canada is ICEF Miami.

All of the student recruitment agents that attend ICEF Miami undergo ICEF’s strict selection and screening process – considered the most stringent in the industry. In addition to providing both detailed information about their business and references from current educator partners, agents must demonstrate an established focus on sending students to the Americas.

Prior to the event, educators are able to schedule up to 38 one-to-one business meetings with agents from all over the world online. The ICEF version of the eSchedule PRO meeting booking system allows educators to view comprehensive agent profiles, including the number of students sent to the US and Canada per education sector in the last 12 months. This information helps you identify and meet with the agents most relevant to you.

ICEF Miami is an ideal opportunity for US and Canadian institutions to benefit from a large number of top quality recruiters committed to building lasting partnerships within the Americas.

It is without question the most organized event to meet agents. The quality of the agents is significant to our school. I enjoy reconnecting with colleagues and meeting new partners. I always leave with more than I expected!” - Robin Moloff-Gautier, Washington Academy, USA.

“ICEF Miami 2018 fulfilled our expectations and made it possible to explore new paths. It helped us recognize our strengths and weaknesses in order to strengthen our internationalization process. The seriousness of the event, good organization, and selection of participating agents allowed us to learn first-hand the current needs of international students, as well as the current demand for educational programs and courses. Each institution can identify its real possibilities to venture into the international recruitment markets.” - Juan Francisco Vasquez, Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana, Colombia.

“The informal networking opportunities were incredible. Meeting agents from so many different countries in one location was invaluable!” - Alisa Southwell, Florida Preparatory Academy, USA.

“ICEF events are top-notch! I especially appreciated the Marcom meeting booking system. Overall, it was an amazingly well-run event.” - Steve Bittner, Santiam Christian School, USA.

“ICEF Miami was extremely well organized and beneficial to us. From the moment I registered, the support provided and the ease with which it's possible to communicate and set or accept appointments, is unmatched by other events. I strongly recommend ICEF Miami to colleges and universities interested in strategically expanding their global footprint and recruitment efforts, as well as their international student intake. ICEF provides a great venue for properly vetting and finding perfect international partners and representatives.” - David Schmidt, Middle Tennessee State University, USA.
