This is the largest conference in international education worldwide with some 10,000 participants from around the world. Canada has one of the largest country pavilions in the Expo Hall. Participants are representatives of educational institutions responsible for student mobility and guidance, program development, or partnerships; others are educational institution administrators or faculty members, service providers and government representatives. Approximately 60% of attendees are American; however, in recent years, this event has become a must for international educators worldwide.

If your budget or travel schedule is restricted, this is the most valuable event to attend to meet with many current or potential partners at once.
