About this event

ICEF Virtual Asia is an exciting new online event designed specifically to meet the needs of international education professionals from across Asia. Bringing together colleagues from right across the region, we are proud that this event provides the region’s best networking community for professionals with an interest in 15 countries from across Asia, including South Korea, Japan, The Philippines, Vietnam, China and Thailand.

The recent explosion of Asia’s middle class is set to create a new consumer market larger in number and spending power than the rest of the world combined by 2030. Asian countries are expected to contribute to an enormous increase in outbound student numbers as international travel resumes.

In 2021, ICEF Virtual Asia marks its inaugural event, taking place online, and welcoming you from wherever you are. This powerful format offers delegates a time- and cost-effective way to develop and extend their network across this fast-growing market.


At this networking event, you can build your own personalised programme of around 38 one-to-one video meetings with existing and would-be partners of interest.

Whether you join us in-person or online, you will also be able to access our range of seminars providing up-to-date information and the latest market trends and issues currently affecting international education across Asia. Featuring insightful speakers relevant to the world of international student recruitment, these optional seminars are available live during the event and on-demand through our online platform, both during and for 4 weeks after the event, so you can build your schedule to suit you.

This unmatched combination of personalised meetings, informative webinars, and informal networking opportunities provides the most intuitive and cost-effective way to keep up with the latest developments in international education, as well as meeting with existing and new partners



ICEF Virtual Asia is a truly pan-Asian event, enabling participants to meet with top quality ICEF-screened recruitment agents representing students in countries from right across Asia.
