The English UK Asia Pacific Roadshow

The English UK Asia Pacific Roadshow combines two business-to-business events in the region to help Asia Pacific agents and student recruitment specialists to understand UK ELT and build strategic partnerships with accredited UK providers. The event welcomes English UK members, agents and service providers.

All English UK overseas roadshows and fairs share a unique focus on the UK English language training sector (ELT). They bring high quality agents together with representatives from English UK member centres, which include large and small English language schools, boarding and summer schools, further education colleges and universities.

The English UK Asia Pacific Roadshow will connect representatives from English UK member centres with high quality agents and buyers from across the Asia Pacific region, to build valuable business partnerships.

This Roadshow combines two business-to-business events:

  • Osaka: Monday 19 to Tuesday 20 November
  • Bangkok: Thursday 22 to Friday 23 November

Agents from North East Asia (including Japan, Korea and Taiwan) are invited to join us in Osaka. Agents and buyers from South East Asia (Thailand, Vietnam and neighbouring countries) are invited to join us in Bangkok. English UK members and sevices providers can attend one or both events; depending upon which part of the wider region they wish to focus their recruitment strategy on.

Each event will include a networking dinner, agent training sessions and a full day of one-to-one business meetings. View the full schedule.
