About this Roadshow

The ICEF Japan – Korea Roadshow provides international educators and service providers with the opportunity to meet quality, active student recruitment agents from both Japan and Korea.

This event will be split between Tokyo and Seoul, the political, economic and cultural hubs of both these important markets, and will offer participants a 1-day event in each location.

The ICEF Japan – Korea Roadshow sells out every year - do not miss out on this fantastic networking opportunity.

Agents attending the roadshow are exclusively from Japan and Korea, providing a focused opportunity to establish firm links in these markets. All agents are carefully screened and are actively sending students to various institutions around the world.

Personal contact is an important cultural aspect of business in Asia, particularly in Japan and Korea. The roadshow provides an excellent opportunity for educators and service providers to pre-schedule face-to-face meetings with agents to both consolidate existing, and establish new partnerships.

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

The ICEF Japan – Korea Roadshow 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 both Japan and Korea.

Places at the ICEF Japan – Korea Roadshow are strictly limited. It is not possible to book only one location.
