Colombia - Chile

Expo-Estudiante is our comprehensive series of fairs in Spanish-speaking Latin America, covering the major student markets of Colombia and Chile.

Due, in part, to our partnerships with key scholarship agencies, local consulates, top universities and leading high schools, Expo-Estudiante consistently attracts students with both the academic and financial ability to study abroad.

Now in its 22st year, Expo-Estudiante is the leading international student recruitment fair series in Latin America.

In Spring 2018, the Expo-Estudiante fairs will take place in Colombia and Chile are visited by thousands of students (and parents) in their final stages of choosing an overseas study destination.

Now in our 30th year, BMI has enormous experience in delivering world class recruitment fairs in Latin America,  as well as valuable connections with various key private scholarship agencies, such as COLFUTURO, FULBRIGHT (Colombia) and CONICYT (Chile) who all support and participate in these events.

This is your opportunity to meet and recruit students who are in the final stage of selecting their course and institution abroad. With over 15,000 visitors in 4 major cities, our fair series offers a phenomenal return on investment.
