Sofitel Jequitimar Guarujá
We would like to invite you to attend the São Paulo Fair. This is a workshop event organised by the British Council, English UK, UK Trade & Investment and VisitBritain.
The São Paulo Fair will bring together accredited UK English language centres and study abroad agents in the beautiful coastal resort of Guarujá, located only 90 km from São Paulo's international airport and set on a beach surrounded by Atlantic Forest. Participation is limited to just 70 organisations (30 educators and 40 agencies) and is open to English UK member centres and selected top quality agents from the Americas.
Guarujá, close to São Paulo in Brazil, was chosen as a venue for this Fair, as it is an accessible and desirable destination for both language travel agents from countries around the region and UK educators. The Sofitel Jequitimar - a luxurious 5 star resort and spa on lovely Pernambuco Beach - can be easily reached from downtown São Paulo (we can assist with booking a transfer if necessary).
Participation is free* for agents and the package offered will include accommodation for 3 nights at the Sofitel Jequitimar Guarujá, Welcome Reception, workshop sessions and eSchedule Lite account (one-to-one appointment scheduling system), seminar programme, lunch on Wednesday and Thursday and Farewell Dinner.
Please download the leaflet for more details.
If you wish to register, please download, complete and return the Application Form as soon as possible (places are limited). The form is formatted as an interactive PDF file making it possible to complete it electronically and return it via email using the 'submit' button located at the bottom of page 2.
*Please ensure you read the terms and conditions carefully before submitting your application and note all participating agents are required to provide details of a valid credit card in order to secure their participation in the event. A cancellation fee of GBP 300 will be charged if an agent fails to cancel their attendance a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the event. The only exception considered will be a visa refusal to the destination country.
Please also note by registering for the São Paulo Fair, you consent to schedule appointments with participating educators through the online eSchedule Lite appointment scheduling system prior to the event. The eSchedule Lite appointment system will go live in good time before the Fair. You will receive further details about this and your personal login information (via email direct from Marcom Consulting) in due course.
Agents wishing to take part should be serious about sending clients to the UK to study English language courses. If more agents apply than there are places available, selection will be made on the basis of ensuring a representative sample of the markets in the region. Beyond this criterion, places will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
