ICEF Virtual Americas successfully hosted 759 international education professionals over three days with participants drawn from 92 countries across six continents, demonstrating a strong, international interest in education programmes across the Americas. In 2021, this event had an expanded focus to include French education in North America.

With the challenges currently facing the international education sector, and despite the prospect of physical events returning soon, our event attendees overwhelmingly found this virtual event to be a valuable experience, with 96% being satisfied or highly satisfied with their experience.

Seminar Programme

Alongside our core meeting schedule, ICEF Virtual Americas delivered a targeted seminar programme designed specifically for education professionals with an interest in the Americas. These sessions included advice from around the international education industry to the Covid-19 pandemic in our renowned ICEF Agent Voice series. Participants were highly engaged with over 1,300 webinar views during the event.

Alongside strong, high quality, and diverse attendance, as well as outstanding delegate feedback, the success of ICEF Virtual Americas’ seminar programme, meeting schedule, and overall virtual environment firmly established this event as a must-attend in the calendar of any leading international education professional with an interest in recruiting students for study programmes in this exciting region.
