The current explosion of Asia's middle class is set to create a new consumer market larger in number and spending power than the rest of the world combined by 2030. China is already the leading supplier of international students, and all Asian countries are presently contributing to an enormous increase in outbound student numbers.

The 19th annual ICEF Asia in Beijing is the largest and most established agent networking event of its kind in the region, offering international educators and service providers a time- and cost-effective way to develop and extend their network across these fast growing markets.

ICEF Asia enables participants to meet with top quality ICEF-screened agents from 12 Asian countries, with around 65% coming from China. These Chinese agents are selected from 24 different locations, including the Tier 1 gateway megacities of Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, as well as from 20 other Tier 2 and Tier 3 provincial capital cities, high growth powerhouses and leading regional economic hubs. Also, 60% of our Beijing agents are in fact the HQs of nationwide agencies with branches in other cities all over China.

Established in China since 1999, ICEF has built considerable local expertise and an extensive footprint over the past 20 years, with local ICEF agent managers maintaining regular close contact with over 1 250 currently active agents. More than 460 China ICEF Trained Agent Counsellors (CITAC’s) are currently based in 41 cities (4 Tier 1 cities, 12 "new first tier" cities, 13 Tier 2 cities and 12 Tier 3 cities).

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

ICEF's meeting scheduling system allows participants to maximise their time and presence in Beijing. Participants can pre-select agents after reviewing their comprehensive profiles online prior to the event. In addition, participants may also attend a variety of informative seminars, expert panels, and presentations. Each one provides valuable insights into the latest trends and research influencing international education.

ICEF Asia is the ideal place to meet and engage with the best student recruitment agents from all over China and greater Asia, while networking and sharing ideas with peers from around the world.
