12 Reasons to Participate in IEFT Fairs...

Villages allow groups to successfully brand not only their partner schools but also their countries...

1- Country Villages or Pavilions 

Villages allow groups to successfully brand not only their partner schools but also their countries. As IEFT we have many international partners that support us in this market to make a specialized country village such as; British Education Village, Education in the USA Village, Education in Canada Village (supported by Canadian Consulate General), Study in Australia Village (supported by Austrade), Study in France (supported by CampusFrance), Study in Germany (supported by DAAD), Study in Estonia, Study in Lithuania, Study in Sweden (supported by Swedish Institute), Study in Poland, Education in Ireland , Education Malaysia (supported by Consulate General of Malaysia) and etc. at the IEFT Exhibitions. 

2- Targeted Promotions and Advertisement of Fairs 

Because the IEFT Team has a lot of experience in International Education Marketing in Turkey, the team organizes the marketing of each IEFT event very carefully, and to a very targeted audience, creating a new marketing plan for each event. We are very careful to bring not only a large number of students, but also highly qualified students to our fairs. We do spend most part of our budget to promote to fairs to genuine students and their parents.

3- IEFTONLINE.COM Search Engine 

Around 2 months before the IEFT Fairs, all the schools’ study programs are going to be entered into IEFTONLINE.COM and will be online all year round in order to allow students to search your programs. Every student who visits IEFT Websites before the fair will see your full program details and will be able to search and apply to you directly or through your local agency. IEFT student website www.ieft.com.tr and www.ieftonline.com are visited by one million potential students before, during and after the fairs. Out of a million online visitors around 20,000 of them visit the IEFT Fairs personally. With our IEFTONLINE system the students will know everything about your school before visiting the fairs and you will have a chance to MEET well informed students at the fair. 

4- Quality Visitors, profiles and statistics 

Each IEFT Fair Tour is visited by around 20,000 students and their parents. The students are from very respected universities and high schools of Turkey. Also, because the events are hosted in the business and educational centers of each city we visit, IEFT Fairs are also visited by a number of young and experienced professionals looking for education opportunities abroad.

The seminars are given free of charge (on a first-come, first-serve basis) and last approximately 30 minutes.
