Panama - Colombia - Peru - Chile - Ecuador

Now in its 21st year, Expo-Estudiante is the leading international student recruitment fair series in Spanish-speaking Latin America.

Expo-Estudiante takes place in every major student market in Latin America (except Brazil) and consistently attracts students that have both the financial and academic ability to study abroad. During March/September, Expo-Estudiante will visit Colombia, Panama, Chile, Ecuador and Peru. These events also incorporate visits to the top private high schools in Cali and Quito where we will hold on campus mini-fairs, giving you the opportunity to speak with senior students, counsellors and principals.

Our partnership with key scholarship agencies, local consulates, top universities and high schools will ensure that you meet quality students who have the academic and financial ability to study overseas. Key government and private scholarship agencies, including COLFUTURO and FULBRIGHT in Colombia, and SENESCYT in Ecuador, Chile (CONICYT), Pronabec in Peru and IFARU in Panama will support and participate in these events.

Collect student data and increase conversions

Lead management is a crucial component of any student recruitment campaign. Our proprietary data scanner technology allows you to collect detailed student information in real time. Details such as name, contact info and key information on what course, country and intended date of study are all captured. Your database will be ready for follow up the moment you walk out the door of the fair. Simple, easy, effective.

Helping you in Latin America

Print in Latin America

Avoid costly shipping and customs problems. BMI can manage your printing in Latin America and have it waiting for you on your stand or delivered to local partners such as agents or advising centres.

Lost In translation

Translators can be organised to help you on your stand. They are especially helpful when talking with parents or if you are only sending one representative.

Save on accomodation

As an exhibitor you will gain access to discounted room rates before, during, and after the fair.

Printing of stands graphics

Tired of carrying posters and pop up stands? Printing your graphics directly onto the stand walls looks fantastic, professional and is very cost effective.
