For most international students, agents play an important role in selecting and applying to institutions abroad. As a result, agents have become a vital recruitment method for Canadian and US educators.
For the last nine years, the ICEF event in Canada has attracted an increasing number of participants, firmly establishing itself as Canada’s leading education networking event.
At the event, educators and service providers from Canada and the US will meet with hundreds of education agents, all rigorously vetted through ICEF’s renowned quality screening process. Among other requirements, agents must provide several references from current Canadian and US partners, and disclose the number of students they have successfully placed per education sector in the Americas in the last year. This ensures that only active, relevant agencies are accepted to the event.
Prior to the event, educators and service providers gain access to eSchedule PRO, ICEF’s customised scheduling software. Through this software, educators and service providers can easily determine relevant agents and pre-arrange up to 38 face-to-face meetings.
In addition to formal meetings and social events, event participants may also participate in various market intelligence seminars and industry presentations.
Attended by the best educational agents, and organised by the industry leader in educator-agent networking events, ICEF Vancouver is the must attend international education event in Canada.
The event enables educators to hold pre-scheduled one-to-one business appointments with relevant, quality student recruitment agents, as well as with other educators and service providers. These appointments are 25 minutes in duration and serve the dual objectives of meeting with new contacts and/or maintaining existing relationships. The event programme also includes meals, refreshment breaks and evening functions, which offer valuable social networking opportunities.
