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 ICEF Miami.

All of the student recruitment agents that attend ICEF Miami 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.

ICEF Miami 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.

General Information on this Workshop

The event enables educators to hold up to 38 pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings 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 objective of meeting new contacts and maintaining existing relationships. The workshop program also includes meals, refreshment breaks, and evening functions, which offer valuable networking opportunities.
