International educators network with agents from across the African continent
With some restrictions and obstacles still in place from the pandemic, this popular event returned this year in a virtual format.
The ICEF Africa events are an important part of the networking strategy for hundreds of agents across this diverse continent, and provide an ideal platform for international educators to source students from many of the 54 African countries.
At ICEF Virtual Africa 2022, 182 individuals representing 173 industry organisations from 41 countries held a total of 1,783 virtual meetings over the course of three days.
