ICEF Vancouver enables quality agents from around the world to meet with Canadian and US education providers

For the last 14 years, the ICEF Americas events – hosted alternately in Vancouver and Toronto – have attracted an increasing number of participants, firmly establishing both as Canada’s leading international education B2B networking gatherings.

ICEF Vancouver returns in 2023, with a three-day networking event receiving hundreds of quality student recruitment agents from around the world. Representing tens of thousands of students interested in studying in Canada and the US, attending education agents have been pre-screened by ICEF to ensure professional standards.

Running from May 06-08, 2023, this popular hybrid event will host in-person delegates at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, and others also joining virtually from anywhere in the world.

Programme & Seminars

At ICEF Vancouver, you can build your own personalised programme from up to 38 in-person and over 50 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 international student recruitment to Canada and the Americas.

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