ICEF North America enables quality agents from around the world to meet with Canadian and US education providers

For the last 15 years, the ICEF Americas events in Canada – hosted alternately in Toronto and Vancouver – have attracted an increasing number of participants. Now firmly established as Canada’s leading international education B2B networking opportunity, this three-day networking event comes to Niagara Falls for the first time in 2024.

Welcoming hundreds of student recruitment professionals from around the world, ICEF North America 2024 provides the opportunity for educators and service providers to connect with hundreds of pre-screened agents, representing tens of thousands of students interested in studying in both Canada and the US.

For 2024, an additional benefit of ICEF North America is the inclusion of ICEF French Education, a unique event bringing together Canadian providers of French-language education programs and agents from around the world. With Canada being the second largest destination for francophone students, ICEF French education is the perfect opportunity for Canadian providers to bring their offer to specially-selected agents from around the world in a bespoke pavilion appended to the event.

Running from May 1-3, ICEF North America 2024 is an in-person event hosted at the world-class Niagara Falls Convention Centre.


Build your own personalised schedule of up to 38 one-to-one meetings with existing and potential partners.

Enjoy a programme of live seminars, presentations and panel discussions, featuring experts from across the industry. Taking place on the opening day, this is a unique opportunity to gain up-to-date information and news on the latest market trends and issues concerning study in Canada and the US.

Apart from your scheduled meetings, coffee breaks and evening receptions provide ample opportunity to enjoy informal networking opportunities.
