Connect with the largest outbound student market in the world

A truly international gathering, the popular ICEF Asia returns to Ho Chi Minh City in 2024, offering student recruitment professionals the opportunity to forge networks with agents representing over 20 outbound student countries in Asia, including Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, China, and India.

With Asia’s middle class continuing to expand rapidly, interest in international education is soaring, and Vietnam now ranks among the top ten markets for outbound international student mobility. As a result, ICEF Asia is an immensely important event for international student recruitment professionals looking to enter or expand within this valuable market.

Hosted over three days, June 11-13, this unique event welcomes participants to the InterContinental Saigon Hotel, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
