Increase your student recruitment from the Middle East and North Africa

As regions renowned for diversity, the Middle East and North Africa represent an attractive source of students for leading international education institutions.

ICEF Dubai is a popular hybrid event offering delegates, participating in-person and virtually, exclusive access to high-quality, ICEF-screened agents from 17 countries across both regions.

This unique three-day event runs from 13 – 15 February 2023, with the in-person delegates meeting at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers and others joining virtually from anywhere in the world.

Programme & Seminars

At ICEF Dubai, you can build your own personalised programme from up to 38 in-person and over 80 virtual one-on-one meetings with existing and potential partners, as well as benefit from a range of informal networking opportunities.

Whether you join us in person or online, you will also be able to access our line-up of seminars, providing up-to-date information about the latest market trends and issues currently affecting the MENA region.

Our seminars are available live during the event and on-demand through our online platform, both during and for four weeks after the event.


Who goes to ICEF Dubai?

The educator delegates who join ICEF Dubai recognise the huge potential of the MENA region with large youthful poulations and a number of high net worth countries. They come to this event to maintain existing regional contacts and to develop new partnerships with student recruitment agents who have been pre-screened by ICEF, to ensure professional quality.
