About this Workshop

The ICEF Asia Workshop is the largest agent networking event of its kind in Asia. China is the leading supplier of international students in the world, making this a must-attend event for all education institutions seeking to build relationships in China and greater Asia.

The ICEF Asia Workshop attracts the best international educators and service providers, connecting them with quality Asian agents carefully screened by ICEF.

ICEF’s appointment scheduling system allows participants to make the most of their time in Beijing. Participants can pre-select agents after reviewing their comprehensive profiles online prior to the event. In addition, participants may also attend various seminars, expert panels, and presentations. Each of these provides valuable insights into the latest trends and research affecting international education.

As an additional benefit, the ICEF Asia Workshop maintains a dual inbound and outbound focus, meaning that educators can also meet other international institutions at this workshop to develop exchange programmes and joint ventures.

The ICEF Asia Workshop is the ideal place for meeting top-quality student recruitment agents from China and greater Asia, while networking and sharing ideas with peers from around the world.
