About ICEF Berlin 2021

Through our virtual events, ICEF has played an important role in supporting the industry’s plans for emerging from the global lockdowns. Now ICEF Berlin 2021, our first hybrid event, has set a new benchmark for the future of networking in the global education industry.

During the event we welcomed a total of 1,774 participants; 753 joined us in-person at the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin, while another 1,021 took part through the online platform. The first three days were hybrid, with participants attending meetings both virtually and at the booths and tables at the venue. Whereas the final day was virtual only. Together they attended 21,546 meetings.


ICEF Berlin 2021 proves to be a powerful resource in the sector’s recovery

For the vast majority of participants, ICEF Berlin 2021 was exactly the right event at exactly the right time, as our after-event survey shows:

  • A total of 88.5% said they had attended to either meet new contacts or reconnect with existing partners.
  • Of those, 91.3% said they had been successful in achieving their primary goal.
  • 98% rated ICEF Berlin 2021 as good or excellent.
  • With those statistics, it’s not surprising to see that 99.3% of our survey respondents said that they will attend ICE Berlin in the future.

Programme & Seminars

In addition to the one-to-one meetings and informal networking events, ICEF Berlin also provided a full programme of over 50 live and hybrid seminars, webinars, panel discussions, on-demand sessions and case studies. All created to provide insights on post pandemic recovery strategies, industry trends, regional market intelligence, and destination updates.

A special episode of the ICEF Podcast recorded during the event, brought together a variety of industry professionals to discuss and celebrate the reunion of the industry. You can listen to the podcast “The student recruitment industry reunited” by clicking on the button below.
