The Mexico 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 Mexico's most productive markets during Mexico's leading International Student Recruitment Fairs.

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.

Reasons to Attend

The 27th International Education Mexico EXPO Roadshow held in the spring of 2016 received over 9000 students for the total EXPO. Mexico is the 11th largest economy in the world, and consistently ranks among the top ten countries sending students to the USA and Canada. There are more than 24,000 students choosing to study abroad, selecting destinations such as Spain, UK, and USA.

Market Overview

According to the Secretaría de Educación Pública, Mexican public and private colleges are focusing on alliances and agreements with foreign schools to provide joint programs, dual certification and exchange programs for students and professors. These programs have become more important as Mexico has become a key player in the world economy. Mexico currently boasts over 2,000 institutions of higher education.
