The 8th annual ICEF Mexico–Colombia Roadshow gives international education providers the opportunity to meet with quality, active student recruitment agents from Mexico and Colombia.

This event is split between Mexico City and Bogotá, allowing participants to meet agents from all over both countries.

In 2020, 104 agents from 70 Mexican agencies in 17 states came to the capital for the event. In addition, 23% of these agencies also recruit students from other Central American markets including Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala and El Salvador, giving education providers recruitment opportunities in these countries.

In Colombia, 120 agents representing 82 agencies in 11 provinces participated in the 2020 event - the largest number of Colombian agencies ever. Almost half of them also represent students in a number of other Latin American markets. By partnering with these agencies, education and service providers also gain access to students in countries such as Chile, Argentina, Ecuador and Peru.

All agents attending are carefully selected and are required to pass ICEF’s strict screening process. They 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.

In Latin America, personal contact is crucial to successful business relationships. One-to-one meetings at the roadshow provide an excellent opportunity for education and service providers both to consolidate existing partnerships and establish new ones. Further networking opportunities at lunch times, coffee breaks, and evening functions allow participants to develop the social aspects of their business relationships.

The ICEF Mexico–Colombia Roadshow is the most efficient and cost-effective way to meet face-to-face with a large number of quality agents. It is a must for educators who want to connect, build, and maintain long-term partnerships in Mexico, Colombia, and Central America.

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