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

For the last 14 years, the ICEF Americas events – hosted alternately in Vancouver and Toronto – have attracted an increasing number of participants, firmly establishing both as Canada’s leading international education B2B networking conferences.

ICEF Vancouver returns in 2023, with a three-day networking event welcoming hundreds of student recruitment professionals from around the world. This is an opportunity for educators and service providers to connect with hundreds of pre-screened agents representing tens of thousands of students interested in studying in Canada and the US.

Running from May 06-08, ICEF Vancouver 2023 is an in-person event being hosted at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.

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

The health and safety of our delegates is important to us and we will follow the latest advice provided by local health authorities to ensure that our event conforms.

All delegates should follow the COVID-19 entry requirements of the host country. If local health authority guidance prevents the in-person aspects of this event taking place, our hybrid event platform allows us to seamlessly deliver this event in an online format.

If an in-person participant cannot attend due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we can switch the attendance seamlessly to take part virtually instead, without the need to reschedule meetings. Alternatively, you may nominate a colleague to attend in your place.

FAM Tours and Receptions, are two ways you can increase your organisation’s profile by hosting invited ICEF event participants to a private gathering either at your school/campus or a location of your choice.
