Grow your student enrollments at Brazil’s leading international student fair

The numbers speak for themselves. In March 2017, over 27,000 students, parents and executives visited Salão to meet more than 125 institutions from 20 countries.

Organisations such as Education USA, Education Ireland, Austrade, Campus France, Universities Portugal and almost every major educational agency in Brazil participates in Salão.

Held across the major cities of Brazil, Salão do Estudante is the leading international student recruitment fair in Brazil and one of the most prominent and successful education fairs in the world.

Without doubt, the leading international student recruitment fair in Brazil. Salão do Estudante connects enthusiastic students looking to study abroad with schools and universities from across the globe. Since the needs of students are as varied as the students themselves, a vast range of institutions is present each year.

A huge source of international students, with a population of over 200 million and a growing economic power, Brazil is replete with ambitious young men and women. Many thousands of them descend upon our fairs each year, making these events some of the most fundamental in the region.

Now in its 23rd year, Salão has become a focal point for some of the largest education agencies in the world, testament enough to Salão’s global reach and influence. If you are interested in recruiting students from Brazil, Salão is an essential and unmissable event to include in your recruitment plans.
