About this event

Returning in 2021, ICEF Miami enables education providers to meet with over 500 ICEF-screened education agents focused on sending students to the Americas.

The United States and Canada are consistently ranked as top study destinations with broad international appeal across all educational sectors. Now more than ever, an increasing number of educational institutions are turning to student recruitment agents to help them boost international enrolments and increase the quality of their student applications.

There is no better opportunity to network with such top-quality agents focused on sending international students to study in the US and Canada.

Please note that ICEF Miami 2021 will be a hybrid event, with delegates participating in-person at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, and others virtually from anywhere in the world. The exact mix will depend on prevailing US entry and visa conditions in December 2021.

Programme & Seminars

At this three day hybrid networking event, you can build your own personalised programme of over 30 in-person and 60 virtual one-on-one meetings with existing and potential partners, as well as 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 optional seminars, providing up-to-date information about the latest market trends and issues currently affecting the global world of international education. Our seminars are available live during the event and on demand through our online platform, both during and for 4 weeks after the event.

Additional event information

A hybrid event combines the onsite experience of an in-person gathering with the ability to also participate virtually, allowing delegates to not only attend at the venue, but also from anywhere else.

As well as being able to meet with others who are physically present, delegates attending the event can also seamlessly schedule additional meetings with people elsewhere. Likewise, attendees taking part virtually may also meet with others located anywhere around the world and participate in the seminar programme.

For those attending virtually, our events use a combination of Marcom eSchedule PRO and Zoom to provide an engaging networking experience for all participants. This combination offers you direct and total control over the types of partners you meet during the event based on their main activity and country of origin, as well as the peace of mind of using a secure and stable platform for your meetings.

Once registered, you will receive log-in details enabling you to access our meeting scheduling system three weeks prior to the event through your myICEF portal.

As well as being the perfect opportunity to get your brand in front of key decision makers & budget holders, your place includes all of the following benefits:

What are the three ways delegates may meet each other?

  1. Physical delegates can meet each other face to face at the event.
  2. Physical delegates will also be able to meet virtual participants – from their meeting tables (own device and headsets required), in specially designated areas or in the comfort of their own hotel room.
  3. Virtual delegates can meet participants who are onsite at the event or also taking part virtually from another location.

How are meetings scheduled at a hybrid event?

We are using an enhanced hybrid version of Marcom eSchedulePRO with integrated Zoom at this event.

This will allow event delegates to seamlessly combine in-person and online Zoom meetings within one schedule. Meeting scheduling for ICEF Miami 2021 will open approximately four weeks prior to the event.

What health precautions are ICEF taking to reduce the risk of infection?

The health and safety of our delegates is the primary concern for us at ICEF and we are taking regular advice to ensure that our event conforms to the latest health guidance provided by the local authorities. Precautions we are taking include:

  • Temperature monitoring of all delegates upon arrival and at regular intervals throughout the event.
  • Provision of hand sanitiser stations throughout the venue.
  • Ensuring all spaces conform to social distancing guidelines by reconfiguring booth and table layouts as well as queuing systems. This will ensure adequate distancing and will discourage the formation of groups, whilst preserving the ability for delegates to comfortably browse products and services of interest.
  • Operating a one-way transit system throughout the venue.
  • Ensuring that all delegates are able to maintain a distance of at least 1.5m from other attendees during meetings and seminar sessions.
  • Live streaming seminars and making these available on demand for all delegates who do not wish to attend the session in-person.
  • Providing guidance to all delegates on social distancing and infection control best practices.
  • Providing face masks to be optionally worn by all participants during the event, to reduce the risk of virus transmission. We recommend that these should be worn when moving around the event venue or whenever social distancing is not possible.
  • Ensuring enhanced cleaning and regular disinfection of high-touch areas.
  • Subjecting food & beverage options and their delivery to tightened safety standards.
  • Making all ICEF events paperless. All event-related documents such as catalogues, bag inserts etc. will be available in a digital format only.

What happens if this event cannot take place in person?

We will follow the latest advice provided by local health authorities and will only allow the in-person aspects of this event to take place if it is safe to do so. In the event that local authorities restrict in-person networking, our hybrid event platform allows for us to seamlessly deliver this event in an online only format.
