Exhibitors Testimonials

What have our past participants said about IEFT?

In the past exhibition circuits, IEFT participants enjoyed great success: Hundreds of quality schools and education partners from over 29 countries have met with 100,000+ prospective students and their families, all eager to discover the study options available abroad (Look Who’s Been to IEFT) 
All levels of education are represented at IEFT, from high school programs and language schools, to post-graduate and special education programs. And this range is just what IEFT visitors are looking for: Students, parents, teachers, executives, and school representatives – all walk away from these events enlightened by shared information, new contacts, and new opportunities.
The real success of IEFT has to be credited to those school representatives who attend. It is the combination of personalities and cultures that makes IEFT what it is: An international event reflecting the true nature of this industry.
