StudyWorld is all about making it easy to meet the contacts and build the relationships your business needs. That’s why specialist zones, lounges and educator villages play a key role the event.
In addition to the Gulf lounge and DIT area, we are delighted to announce educator villages for boarding schools, The English Network, quality English centres and a wider group belonging to ALTO, the Association of Language Travel Organisations.
You can make appointments to meet the individual schools and colleges in each of these villages, or have a conversation with a representative from the organisation as a whole.
“We’re getting a lot of interest in our specialist groupings. The villages are a great way to raise the profile of educator associations, and are really helpful for our agents and buyers,” said Jodie Gray, English UK’s Head of Market Development. “We think the ALTO lounge is going to be a very popular addition to StudyWorld.”
Reka Lenart, Association Manager of ALTO, added: “We are so excited to have a lounge at the upcoming StudyWorld workshop. It’s a great venue for us to promote ALTO to the high-profile industry leaders who will attend the event and we can also offer tables at the spacious lounge for ALTO members to bring their hot desk appointments to.”
