ICEF Toronto 2022 – our largest North American event ever!
There was a great deal of excitement leading up to ICEF Toronto, with many in our community looking forward to catching up with friends and colleagues in person after such a long period apart. And the event certainly did not disappoint.
In an atmosphere of camaraderie and optimism, delegates relaxed and enjoyed the chance to get back to physical networking at what turned out to be ICEF’s largest North American event to date.
Who joined us at ICEF Toronto?
A total of 414 educators representing 248 institutions from Canada and the US joined the event – 388 in person in Toronto and 26 remotely. Of these, 47% held senior management positions.
With agents coming from 78 countries, ICEF Toronto was a truly global event. In total, 510 pre-screened agents attended, representing 437 organisations. Of those, 68% held top management positions and 43% were attending one of our Canadian events for the first-time – indicating a huge increase in the number of students interested in pursuing overseas education opportunities in Canada and the US.
ICEF Toronto also welcomed 126 representatives from 57 organisations covering 14 industry sectors relevant to overseas study.
Seminars, webinars & informal networking
In addition to the one-to-one meetings, ICEF events are also an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of our industry. In Toronto we presented a programme of 29 live and hybrid seminars, webinars and panel discussions.
At ICEF we are constantly innovating to find ways to make our events better, and accessible to as many people as possible. During ICEF Toronto we live-streamed some of our presentations for the first time, and enabled participants attending both in-person and virtually to take part in discussions, through real-time polls.
The trials were very promising and we look forward to enhancing, and rolling out these features for future events.
Our informal networking events are an important part of our success as a facilitator for the global education industry – at ICEF events you don’t just meet valuable business partners, you also make great friends.
