About this event

ICEF Virtual South Asia successfully hosted 226 international education professionals over three days with participants drawn from 19 countries across four continents, demonstrating a continued interest in maintaining and developing connections as educational institutions look to attract students from this important region.

ICEF Virtual South Asia marked ICEF’s first event of 2021 and was a firm statement of intent as we continue to bring together educational institutions, student recruitment agents, and industry service providers during the coronavirus pandemic. By bringing a dedicated focus to South Asia for the first time, ICEF has enabled education professionals to explore this unique market in depth and allow educators to really target their recruitment efforts for the upcoming academic year.

Despite the challenges currently facing the international education sector, and the difficulties inherent in travelling during a period of global restrictions, our event attendees overwhelmingly found this virtual event to be a valuable experience, with over 80% valuing the opportunity to reinforce their contact networks in the region.

Programme & Seminars

Alongside our core meeting schedule, ICEF Virtual South Asia delivered a targeted seminar programme designed specifically for education professionals with an interest in the region. These sessions included advice from around the international education industry to the Covid-19 pandemic in our renowned ICEF Agent Voice series. In addition to this strategic overview, the event provided market updates from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, Jordan and the UAE, and advice on how to recruit students from North Africa. As testament to the quality and insightfulness of the topics covered, 94% of delegates who attended a webinar were either happy, or very happy, with their experience.

Alongside strong, high quality, and diverse attendance, as well as outstanding delegate feedback, the success of ICEF Virtual South Asia’s 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 from this dynamic region sending the most students abroad just after China.
