For 2025, ICEF South Asia is heading to Goa. This popular event offers the unique opportunity to connect with top quality, ICEF-screened student recruitment agents from across India and other South Asian countries including: Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Sri Lanka. These agents are both valued business partners to educators and trusted advisors to the thousands of students across the region who wish to study abroad.

An incredibly important driver in the growth of student mobility, South Asia has now overtaken China as the leading source of international students. With strong growth seen across the region, India is the primary source for outbound international students, with the total number expected to reach between 1.5 and 2 million by 2025.

Taking place over the course of three days, from 6 – 8 February 2025 in Goa, India, this much-anticipated event will be held at the Grand Hyatt hotel.
