Event Info

Covering a wide range of topics in Asia and the Middle East

IPSEF is a series of successful global business conferences for schools and school groups and those involved in financing, regulating, planning, delivering and supplying international and private schools.

In seven years IPSEF has grown from its London home base to deliver events in the UAE and Malaysia to serve the wider Middle East and Asian markets respectively.

IPSEF events draw senior figures from schools and school chains (usually Heads and Owners), investors (Private Equity, Banks, Corporates), Governments (inspectors and regulators), curriculum bodies, consultants, architects and project managers, recruiters, ICT firms and publishers.

The aim of IPSEF is to help anyone involved in a new school operation to hear about best practice from schools that have recently opened, as well as help you find the partners you’ll need to make your project a success. We promise you will leave IPSEF with a valuable list of potential partners!

The Dubai and Kuala Lumpur events comprise two days of high level conference and a series of school visits on the third day to provide practical insight and context to the preceding conference.

An enjoyable networking reception is held on the evening of the first day.

Table top stands are available to organisations seeking to raise their profile amongst the senior figures attending.

4 million students now study at international schools around the world

English-medium international schools now provide education for over 4 million students around the world. This number has risen dramatically in recent years. Just 15 years ago there were fewer than 1 million students, and 5 years ago there were 2.75 million. Demand for places at international schools in many countries is growing at pace, driven by the desire to prepare children in the best possible way for higher education. The International School Consultancy (ISC) which provides data and intelligence on the English-medium international schools market says the 4 million figure was reached, for the first time ever, in May 2015.
