IN-PERSON

For over 30 years ICEF has been organising in-person networking events, in major cities around the world. We have brought together thousands of educators and education agents from across the globe, to meet and build strong B2B partnerships. But it’s not all business!

Beyond the world-class, meticulously organised, networking conference, and the comprehensive scope of the professional seminar schedule, our in-person events also have a reputation for first-rate, informal networking.

Our thriving ICEF community has been built on three decades of colleagues and peers coming together, event after event, year after year, to meet new people and dine and relax with old friends.

VIRTUAL

Our virtual event format developed out of necessity during the pandemic of 2021, when travel restrictions prevented physical meetings, and the industry was in dire need of coming together.

Since launching this format we have held just under 20 virtual events, with nearly 10,000 participants from 135+ countries. Together they held 80,000+ online meetings to network for support, to share ideas, and to develop new business opportunities during extraordinarily difficult times.

ICEF’s unique virtual events use a combination of our online meeting booking system, Marcom eSchedule PRO ICEF Exclusive, and Zoom, to provide a seamless and engaging networking experience for all participants.

HYBRID

A hybrid event combines the fantastic experience of an in-person gathering with the ability to also participate virtually.

Delegates, attending in person or virtually, can seamlessly schedule meetings with any other delegate, also attending in person or virtually.

The ICEF hybrid format opens our international community to a much wider diversity of industry professionals. The flexibility of being able to attend physically or remotely means that more are able to attend and crucial networking can continue.
