The 13th annual ICEF Higher Education provides a targeted opportunity for international tertiary institutions, selected higher education focused agents, and relevant service providers to hold pre-scheduled, one-to-one business meetings effectively and efficiently.

Agents continue to play a crucial role in the growth of the higher education sector, representing institutions in their markets and providing culturally-aware counselling to students and their families. Agents also monitor enrolment criteria, streamlining the entire process.

At the 2018 event, a total of 96 educators and 17 service providers met with 120 agents from 55 countries around the world. ICEF is renowned for inviting only the most relevant and professional agents to attend its events. This reputation was built through ICEF’s stringent screening process. All agents are required to provide verifiable data on their business practices and performance, and must also supply recent references from higher education partners. These steps, among other things, ensure that your meeting time is not wasted.

ICEF Higher Education will take place shortly before the 2019 EAIE Conference, also in Helsinki, allowing educators to attend both events.
