Network with agents from across this vast region

In 2023, ICEF Eurasia returns as a hybrid event, with delegates attending both in-person, at the iconic Hilton Istanbul Bosphuros, and virtually from anywhere in the world.

Running from 13 – 15 March 2023, over the course of three days, international educators and industry-related service providers will have the opportunity to network with a large pool of pre-screened, student recruitment agents from across Central and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia.

Programme & Seminars

At ICEF Eurasia, you can build your own personalised programme from up to 38 in-person and over 50 virtual one-on-one meetings with existing and potential partners.

Those who attend in-person also benefit from a range of informal networking opportunities.

Whether you join us in person or online, you will also be able to access our line-up of seminars, providing up-to-date information about the latest market trends and issues currently affecting the region.

Our seminars are available live during the event and on-demand through our online platform, both during and for four weeks after the event.

The health and safety of our delegates is important to us and we will follow the latest advice provided by local health authorities to ensure that our event conforms.

All delegates should follow the COVID-19 entry requirements of the host country. If local health authority guidance prevents the in-person aspects of this event taking place, our hybrid event platform allows us to seamlessly deliver this event in an online format.

If an in-person participant cannot attend due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we can switch the attendance seamlessly to take part virtually instead, without the need to reschedule meetings. Alternatively, you may nominate a colleague to attend in your place.
