Back in September, we announced our partnership with ICEF, the global market leader in business-to-business networking events and services for the international education sector.
This partnership was made under one shared vision:
"ICEF is the place where agencies and educators meet. Edvisor is where they work together on a daily basis".
Now, agencies or educators participating in an ICEF workshop can easily recognize companies that have active profiles on Edvisor to connect before, during, or after the workshop.
On the other hand, IAS agencies (agencies holding the ICEF Agency Status) can now be recognized in Edvisor along with all the Educators that have attended an ICEF event in the last three years.
How can you work with Edvisor to ensure successful partnerships at ICEF?
