About this Roadshow

The ICEF Mexico – Colombia Roadshow provides international educators with the opportunity to meet quality, active student recruitment agents from both Mexico and Colombia.

This event is split between Mexico City and Bogotá, the political, economic and cultural hubs of these two important student markets, and will offer participants a one day workshop in each location.

All agents attending the roadshow are carefully screened, are actively sending students abroad, and have expressed an interest in language programmes, boarding schools, high schools, vocational training programmes and universities from around the world.

In Latin America, personal contact is crucial to successful business relationships. Face-to-face meetings at the roadshow provide an excellent opportunity for educators and service providers to consolidate existing partnerships, as well as establish new ones. In addition to formal business meetings, a number of networking opportunities at lunch times, coffee breaks and evening functions allow you to develop the social aspects of your business relationships.

The ICEF Mexico – Colombia Roadshow is the most efficient and cost-effective way to meet face-to-face with a large number of quality agents; it is a must for educators who want to connect, build and maintain long-term partnerships in both Mexico and Colombia.

About this Roadshow

The event enables educators to hold up to 38 (19 per location) pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings with relevant, quality student recruitment agents from Mexico and Colombia. These appointments are 30 minutes in duration and serve the dual objective of meeting with new contacts and maintaining existing relationships. The roadshow programme also includes meals, refreshment breaks and two dinner functions, which offer valuable networking opportunities.
