About this Workshop

The ICEF Latin America Workshop is the largest agent networking event focused on this important region. In 2018, the event enabled 144 educators from 16 countries to hold over 3 400 pre-scheduled meetings with 200 quality agents from 10 Latin American countries.

In 2019, the ICEF Latin America Workshop will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and is a convenient location for all workshop participants. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity for international educators from all sectors to consolidate existing partnerships, as well as establish new ones with quality, screened student recruitment agents. Reflecting the market size, and importance, approximately ¾ of the agents at this workshop will come from Brazil.

Participants may also attend various seminars, expert panels, and presentations; each providing valuable insights into the latest trends and research affecting international education. In addition, workshop attendees benefit from numerous informal networking opportunities including lunches, coffee breaks, a cocktail reception and an official gala.
