About this Workshop

The United States and Canada are top study destinations with broad international appeal across all educational sectors. Each year, an increasing number of North American institutions turn to agents to help them boost international enrollments and increase the quality of student applicants. The best place to find top-quality agents focused primarily on the US and Canada is the ICEF Miami Workshop.

All of the student recruitment agents that attend the ICEF Miami Workshop undergo ICEF’s strict selection and screening process – considered the most stringent in the industry. In addition to providing both detailed information about their business and references from current educator partners, agents must demonstrate an established focus on sending students to North America.

Prior to the event, educators are able to schedule up to 38 one-to-one business meetings with agents from all over the world online. The ICEF version of the eSchedule PRO meeting booking system allows educators to view comprehensive agent profiles, including the number of students sent to the US and Canada per education sector in the last 12 months. This information helps you identify and meet with the agents most relevant to you.

The ICEF Miami Workshop is an ideal opportunity for US and Canadian institutions to benefit from a large number of top quality recruiters committed to building lasting partnerships within North America.
