Asia Pacific Roadshow 2019: Taipei & Tokyo

English UK members can meet high quality agents from Taiwan and Japan in person at our famously friendly ELT-focused events. Join us in Taipei or Tokyo for meetings and networking this autumn and build valuable business partnerships.

In November 2019 we will be introducing English UK members to high quality agents in Taipei and Tokyo, two top markets for UK ELT.

Taipei, Taiwan

Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel
Monday 25 - Tuesday 26 November 2019

Tokyo, Japan

Sheraton Miyako Hotel
Thursday 28 - Friday 29 November 2019

Our 2018 event delegates had a great time in Osaka and Bangkok: "A professionally run event, less hectic than the main workshops and attracting quality agents."

Why promote your centre in Taipei and Tokyo?

We are excited to connect English UK members with agents from Taiwan and Japan in 2019.

  • Japan is the seventh largest source market for English UK member centres, accounting for 14,396 students and 78,568 students weeks, based on our latest student statistics report. The number of ELT students at both private and state sector member centres increased in 2018 (up 4.3% and 10% respectively). Japan has long been a valuable ELT market, and the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics, alongside the Japanese government's education strategy, have increased interest in study abroad.
  • In recent years Taiwan has been a growing market for UK ELT. In 2018, 4,513 students from Taiwan studied at English UK member centres, accounting for 27,256 student weeks. This increase has been driven by demand from junior groups and pathway programmes, which is a trend across the Asia Pacific.
  • Both countries are important source markets for state sector English language providers: 20% of ELT students from Japan, and 10% of ELT students from Taiwan, study English in a college or university language centre.
