About this Event

ICEF Dubai is the region’s leading event for networking with student recruitment agents from the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Turkey. There is no other event that can match ICEF Dubai in terms of size, scope, and most importantly quality.

ICEF prides itself on ensuring every possible measure is taken to make sure you meet only the best and most professional agents at our events. All student recruitment agents at the Dubai event must first pass our selection and screening process, and have an active interest in partnering with a broad range of educators and service providers.

During the event, attend informative seminars, participate in networking receptions and hold one-to-one meetings with agents selected by you prior to the event. These activities give you ample opportunity to appoint new representatives, as well as maintain and extend relationships with existing partners.

ICEF Dubai is the best way to meet a large number of top-quality agents face-to-face, in one location, saving you time and travel costs.

About this Event

The event enables educators to hold up to 36 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.
