Please click on the image to view a larger version

The Latin America EXPO Roadshow offers international education institutions, of any discipline and from any country, the opportunity to present their courses to thousands of pre-selected and pre-screened students in Columbia's, Panama's and Venezuela's most productive markets during Latin America's leading International Student Recruitment Fairs.

Reasons to Attend

As the 3rd largest student market in Latin America, Colombia is a highlight on the EXPO Roadshow schedule and Panama, Ecuador, Peru and Chile have been on the exhibition calendars for the last six years.

Language schools, colleges, universities, high schools, IT colleges, business schools, hotel schools, postgraduate and MBA programs from more than 40 countries have experienced increased enrollments and brand awareness through these recruitment events.

Market Overview
As a region, Latin America is seeing an unprecedented number of student recruiters heading its way. Increased levels of English proficiency and higher per capita incomes have cemented this region as an attractive market to recruit international students.
 
Panama is a fast growing hub for trade, business, finance and logistics, owing to its location between two continents. Panama is also home to the two busiest ports in Latin America, and Tocumen International airport is the most connected airport in Latin America. Panama City has a population of 1.5 million people, and is considered to be the most cosmopolitan capital in Central America. The city is a regional hub of trade and immigration, bridging the gap between North and South America.
 
Colombia sends over 25,000 students abroad for higher education each year. This number has increased by 50% over the last decade. Within Colombia, tertiary enrolments have grown even faster, with the number of students enrolling more than doubling from 2003 to 2013 to over two million. The government’s plan requirement that half of all young people continue their studies or training after high school is well on-track.
Bogota is the largest and most populous city in Colombia, and the fourth largest in South America with a population of over 7 million. Bogota holds more schools, colleges and universities than any other city in Colombia, and has high academic levels to reflect this. It has transformed from a city famous for its issues in the past to a model metropolis.
With almost 3 million citizens, Cali is the second largest city in Colombia. Cali has one of the fastest growing economies in the country, and is the main urban and economic centre in South West Colombia.
The city of Medellin, with a population of over 3.5 million, has been rated as the most innovative city in the world, winning awards for its transit system. Budget alterations have made education more widely available across the city.
 
Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America with a population of around 13 million, of which 11,000 students continue their higher education abroad each year. The real GDP growth is both stable and strong when compared with the rest of Latin America, at around 4%.
Quito is the capital city of Ecuador and the second most populous. Quito is a cosmopolitan city of great cultural diversity, with one of the best-preserved, least altered historic centres in Latin America.
 
Peru is historically one of the fastest growing economies in Latin America. With a population of over 30 million, Peru is in a state of fast development. Changes to the education sector within the country have created uncertainty, but this has opened the door to international educators.
Lima is the capital city of Peru with a population of approximately 10 million. Home to one-third of Peru’s population, Lima is the political, cultural and economic centre of the country. There are several excellent international schools in the city, which follow the standard of a US and European curriculum.
 
Chile is home to a stable political environment and a growing economy. Almost 10,000 students head overseas for their tertiary education per year, and this is likely to continue to grow as the population of students in domestic secondary and tertiary education increases.
Santiago is the 5th largest city in Latin America, and one of the most modern cities on the continent, with a population of approximately 5 million. Santiago is home to Universidad de Chile, which ranks as 4th of all public universities in Latin America.
