As a region, Latin America is seeing an unprecedented number of student recruiters heading its way. Increased levels of English proficiency and higher per capita incomes have cemented this region as an attractive market to recruit international students.
With so many dynamic and fluctuating international student markets in one region, it can be tricky to determine which countries are worth investing in. Colombia, for example, is on the up, sending over 36,000 students overseas each year. Other countries have experienced decreasing numbers, often due to a downturn in their economies, or political changes, or a combination of the two.
Over the last 15 years, FPP has organised fairs in most Latin American countries. With vast experience in these markets, FPP has unparalleled knowledge when it comes to student recruitment in the region. For 2020, we are avoiding markets such as Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Venezuela, but visiting Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Peru - areas which we know our customers will successfully recruit from.

"FPP is not only the best education fair organizer, but is also an important strategic partner for us. They clearly prioritise customer satisfaction and since we first met them 12 years ago, they have constantly outdone themselves in organizing and managing education fairs.
Since 2014 we have been hiring FPP to organize our own event - AC EXPO - the largest education fair in Brazil for students willing to go to Australian and New Zealand. It has been a real pleasure to work with them and the results have been incontestable. I have no doubt that education providers may accomplish very good ROI after an FPP fair."

Vinicius Barreto

"We have been working with FPP for 8 years. It has been really good working with them, the organisation and quality of students is very good. We recommend FPP and EDUEXPOS."

Vitor Meneghetti
Hello Study (Brazil & Australia)

"We’ve been doing FPP for the past four and a half years, because of the quality of students. The number of applications that are converting are really good. It is part of our marketing plan every year now."
