The 11th annual ICEF Vancouver gives education providers from the Americas the opportunity to meet student recruitment agents and service providers from around the world in one convenient location.

For the last ten years, ICEF Vancouver has attracted an increasing number of participants, firmly establishing itself as Canada’s leading education networking event.

At the event, education providers from the Americas will meet with student recruitment agents and service providers from around the world. All agents attending this event are carefully selected and are required to pass ICEF’s strict screening process.

Prior to the event, education and service providers, and agents are able to go online to schedule up to 38 one-to-one business meetings with participants of their choice. The ICEF online booking system allows education providers to view comprehensive agent profiles, helping you to identify and meet with the agents most relevant to you.
