A recent fair for English Schools and EFL agents held in Singapore has been hailed a great success by all the delegates involved.
The English UK Fair, Singapore 2011 took place at Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort from Tuesday 15 to Friday 18 November 2011.
The workshop was organised by English UK in partnership with and supported by the British Council, UK Trade & Investment and VisitBritain.
The fair brought together 29 English UK member centres and 42 study abroad agents from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The aim of the event was to allow English schools to network with agents from new markets who are looking to send international students to the UK.
Following a final day of one-to-one appointment sessions, the fair concluded with a gala dinner held in the famous Raffles Hotel. Judith Slater, Deputy High Commissioner at the British Council, delivered a farewell address which focussed on the importance of partnerships between agents and educators, and the many attractions of the UK as a study abroad destination.
Gareth Baxter-Jones of Euro Education in Thailand remarked: “The social programme was absolutely excellent and was very smoothly organised. Meetings were very productive. I have made at least 5 very high potential business partners and also renewed quite a few previous relationships. All in all it was a great event!”
The next English UK Fair for the Asia Pacific region will be held in Macau from Tuesday 13 to Friday 16 November 2012 at the Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16.
