The Study in Canada Fair will run from 9:30am to 5:30pm at the Cavour Congress Centre, an exclusive venue located in the centre of Rome, close to main transportation services.

A large room has been reserved for Canadian institutions to display their items and meet with Italian clients; another room has been reserved for presentations. Canadian institutions will be offered a 20 minute time-slot for presentations, assigned on a first-come first-served basis. Refreshments and snacks will be available throughout the day in a third room.

Students, parents, agents and local government officials will be invited to meet with Canadian schools and listen to ongoing presentations on Canada as a destination of excellence for study and research abroad.

The Canadian Embassy in Rome will reach out extensively to students via newspaper articles, web advertisements, social media and word-of-mouth. In addition to post-secondary education, university students make up an important client base for language study in the Italian market.

Demand for studying abroad is expected to continue to grow due to the following factors:

- Employment opportunities in Italy are highly competitive and Italian students recognise the need to enhance their skills in order to improve their chances of securing professional employment.
- English language and computer literacy are regarded as key requirements in finding a job. Canada continues to be perceived as a safe and friendly country.
- Italians are attaching growing importance to international study and there is wider recognition by both the Italian Government and businesses of overseas study experience.
- Exchange programs between Italian and foreign universities continue to be popular and foster student mobility.
The Canada Fair is therefore a great opportunity for promoting Canada's winning combination of quality education and a high standard of living, as well as the chance to showcase Canada as an alternative destination to our typical "competitors" namely, the US, the UK and Australia.
