About this event

Following its success in 2019 and 2020, ICEF Africa returns in 2021 as a virtual networking event dedicated to meeting the needs of international education providers looking to attract students from this dynamic and vibrant continent.

Africa has established itself as a major area of growth for outbound students in recent years and countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Botswana, and Ghana are now increasingly challenging Nigeria’s traditional dominance of the sector.

Taking place from 08 to 10 June 2021, ICEF Virtual Africa is the standout opportunity for educational institutions around the world to access these emerging student markets and pro-actively market their institutions to would-be recruitment partners.



Educators and service providers can attend ICEF Virtual Africa for just €1,940 per participant. Discounts are available to attendees when multiple participations are booked at the same time, making your attendance even more cost-effective. Please contact us for further details.

We are proud to welcome carefully-vetted student recruitment agents to this event for free, provided they successfully complete ICEF’s rigorous screening process which ensures that educational institutions meet only with the most qualified agents who have a demonstrated history of successful student placement.

Programme & Seminars

At ICEF Virtual Africa, you can build your own personalised programme, combining over 50 one-to-one pre-scheduled video meetings with an outstanding seminar schedule and informal networking opportunities.

As well as this, you will also be able to access our range of online seminars providing up-to-date information and the latest market trends and issues currently affecting international student recruitment in Africa. Featuring speakers from across the international education community, these optional seminars are designed to inform you of the latest trends and developments. Our seminars are available live and on demand, both during and for 4 weeks after the event, so you can build your schedule to suit you.
