Now on its 5th year, the International Consultants for Education and Fairs (ICEF) hosted the ICEF North America Workshop, Canada’s premier education networking event. Global Education Alliance, along with other pre-selected education agencies, took part in the international event.
Participating in ICEF’s North America Workshop supports GEA’s goal of constantly expanding its network of partner institutions to deliver more value to their student clients. GEA also participated in the event’s seminars to acquire up-to-date knowledge of the education industry. GEA is an ICEF-accredited education agency, which ensures its clients of high-quality education consultations.
The ICEF-initiated event creates partnerships between institutions and student recruitment agents focusing on Canada and the USA. The workshop also conducted informative market intelligence seminars and industry presentations that education agencies learned a lot from.
This year’s ICEF North America Workshop brings together reputable education agents, all of which have passed ICEF’s quality screening process, with educators and service providers. Part of the screening process is for agents to provide ICEF a list of their references from existing Canadian and US partners as well as the number of successful student applications per education sector in the previous year. Screening of participating agents ensures that only active and relevant agencies gain access to the event.
Since ICEF’s workshops began in 2010, partnerships from reputable institutions and agents from 140 countries have already been established.
The ICEF North America event was held in May 10-12, 2015 at the Hotel Bonaventure in Montreal.
