The 8th annual ICEF Japan–Korea Agent Roadshow gives international educators and service providers the opportunity to meet quality, active student recruitment agents from both Japan and Korea. As this event sells out every year, interested parties are advised to book early to avoid missing out on this exceptional opportunity to establish and extend firm links in these two important markets.

This event is split between Tokyo and Seoul and offers participants a one-day event in each location in which they are able to meet with ICEF-screened and selected agencies who join the roadshow from all over each country. Further to this, just under half of the Tokyo-based agencies, and 20% of those based in Seoul have branches in other cities throughout Japan and Korea respectively, ensuring nationwide coverage in both cases.

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

Personal contact is an important cultural aspect of business in Asia, particularly in Japan and Korea. This roadshow provides an excellent opportunity for educators and service providers to pre-schedule one-to-one meetings with agents to consolidate existing partnerships and establish new connections.

In addition, informal networking opportunities over lunches, coffee breaks, and evening functions allow participants to develop their business networks.

The ICEF Japan–Korea Agent Roadshow is the most efficient and cost-effective way to meet a large number of quality agents in two key locations. It is a must for educators wanting to connect, build, and maintain long-term partnerships in both Japan and Korea.

Places at this roadshow are strictly limited. Please note that it is not possible to book only one location.
