ICEF South Asia – an inaugural event focused on the world’s leading source of international students

South Asia has overtaken China as the leading source of international students. During 2021, with the uncertainty of lockdowns and border closures, China saw a 25% decline in students enrolled in overseas institutions. At the same time, India’s overseas enrolments increased by 27%.

Our inaugural ICEF South Asia event provides a unique opportunity to connect with hundreds of student recruitment agents from across India and other South Asian countries, including Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Pre-screened by ICEF to ensure professional standards, these agents are both valued business partners to educators and trusted advisors to thousands of students wishing to study abroad.

This much-anticipated event runs over three days, from 06 – 08 February 2023, at the Westin Mumbai Powai Lake hotel.
