The 3rd annual ICEF Africa will take place in Cape Town in May 2020. The 2019 event brought together student recruitment agents from around the world interested in South Africa as a study destination, as well as connecting international educators and service providers with agents from all over Africa.

South Africa's affordability along with the quality and reputation of South African higher education continue to be important factors in attracting foreign students. Africa is a major area of growth for outbound students and countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Botswana, and Ghana are emerging to complement Nigeria’s traditional dominance of the sector. In addition to meeting with agents during the event, participants can benefit from market intelligence seminars and networking receptions.

All agents attending ICEF Africa are carefully selected and are required to pass ICEF’s strict screening process. Agents must provide multiple references from current business partners, as well as proof of ethical business practices and a successful track record of placing students at international institutions.

ICEF Africa is the most dynamic and productive way to foster relationships with current partners and new representatives in a range of emerging markets.
