The 4th annual ICEF Central Asia Focus gives international educators and service providers the opportunity to meet top-quality student recruitment agents from Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Uzbekistan and all the main cities of Kazakhstan in one practical location.

Central Asia currently makes up 2% of global outbound student mobility and is quickly increasing its importance in the international student market. Steady economic growth averaging 8% per annum over the last decade, and Kazakhstan’s entry to the Bologna Process in 2010, have paved the way for the country to expand its educational infrastructure and encourage students to travel abroad.

In Central Asian culture, parents and government play a crucial role in a student's decision-making process. This means that it is essential for education institutions to establish personal contacts and networks with agents, service providers, as well as government bodies. The ICEF Central Asia Focus is the perfect opportunity to establish firm links and partnerships with the region's best student recruitment professionals.

All agents attending ICEF Central Asia 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.

The ICEF Central Asia Focus is scheduled around ICEF Moscow and the ICEF Ukraine Focus, allowing participants to target their marketing efforts in Russia, Ukraine, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Caucasus in one trip. Places at this event are strictly limited.
