About this event

ICEF Southeast Asia provides international educators and service providers with the opportunity to meet quality, active student recruitment agents from Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, and China.

The ASEAN region contains some of the fastest growing economies in the world. In Vietnam, the middle class is expected to grow from 12 million in 2012 to 33 million by 2020. This will drive a significant increase in purchasing power and demand for premium goods and services. Large youth populations throughout the ASEAN region will continue to drive high demand for quality education and training services. Do not miss your opportunity to establish and develop links in this growing study abroad market.

Agents attending the event will represent the best and most active agencies from across Southeast Asia, providing a focused opportunity to establish a robust network in these markets. All agents are carefully screened to strict ICEF standards and proven to send students to various institutions around the world.

In addition to face-to-face meetings, networking opportunities at lunch times, coffee breaks, and evening functions allow participants to develop the more social aspects of their business relationships.

ICEF Southeast Asia is the most efficient and cost-effective way to conveniently meet a large number of quality agents. It is a must for educators wanting to connect, build and maintain long-term partnerships in this important region.
