Expand your reach in South East Asia, with ICEF Philippines

ICEF Philippines is a new and much-requested event taking place at the iconic Grand Hyatt, in the thriving city of Manila. Conveniently held just three days after the popular ICEF Asia in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, it is a cost-effective way to expand your reach in South East Asia, connecting with agents from across the Philippines, and strengthening existing relationships.

With its fast-growing economy, youthful population, and revised international education strategy, the Philippines is a key growth area. While Canada and Australia have both been historically popular destinations for Filipino students, the US and the UK are swiftly catching up, making this an important strategic destination for international student recruitment professionals eager to diversify their intake.

Programme & Seminars

Build your own personalised programme of up to 19 in-person, one-to-one meeting slots, each 25 minutes in duration, with existing and potential partners. Our format is designed to make it easy for you to identify and connect with the right people.

You’ll also benefit from access to our seminars, providing up-to-date information about the latest market trends and issues affecting the global education sector, all from an Asian-centric perspective.


Who joins ICEF Philippines?

Just three days after ICEF Asia, in Vietnam, ICEF Philippines is a cost-effective means for international education institutes and industry-related service providers to meet ICEF-screened agents, collectively representing tens of thousands of students from across the region.

For agents, this new event is a significant networking opportunity, with potential partners attending from all over the world.

Pricing & Registration

In addition to all the benefits of meetings and seminars, participants who join us will also enjoy informal networking opportunities throughout the duration of the event.

For education representatives, service providers, cultural exchange and work and travel professionals, costs start from just €2,950 per organisation.

Student recruitment agents who have successfully completed ICEF’s rigorous screening process are invited to apply to attend.



Located in Bonifacio Global City, Manila’s spectacular business district, the Grand Hyatt is housed in an iconic building, renowned for being the tallest vantage point in the country.

Boasting clear views of the Manila skyline, easy transport links, and world class facilities, including hotel-wide internet access, spa, pool, and elegant dining options, the Grand Hyatt is the perfect venue for the inaugural ICEF Philippines.
