Following the success of our first event in 2013, the Embassy of Canada in Italy is organizing a Study in Canada Fair in Rome on November 6 and November 7, 2014.

November 6: open to education agents, guidance counsellors, professionals in international education, Italian secondary and post-secondary schools.

November 7: open to K-12, secondary, postsecondary students - ESL/FSL, parents.

This event is being intentionally scheduled after ICEF in Berlin (November 2-4, 2014), in order to allow Canadian institutions who may be considering travelling to Europe to best leverage their presence here and gain additional access to market opportunities.

The Fair will run on both days from 9:30am to 5:30pm at the Cavour Congress Centre http://www.icavour.it/, an exclusive venue located in the centre of Rome, close to main transportation services.

A large room (250 m2) has been reserved for Canadian institutions to display their items and meet with Italian clients; another room (seating capacity of 80) has been reserved for presentations. Canadian institutions will be offered a 15 minute time-slot for presentations, assigned on a first-come first-served basis. There will be free wi-fi on the entire floor. Refreshments and snacks will be available throughout the 2 days in a third room.

Participation is FREE for Canadian institutions.

Canadian institutions will be responsible for arranging shipment of display items to the fair venue, as well as any costs associated with coming to Rome for the event.

Visitors 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 2013 edition of the Study in Canada Fair in Rome was extremely successful; the Fair saw the participation of 21 Canadian Schools and was attended by 400 visitors. A greater number of visitors are expected to attend the 2014 Fair.

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

-- 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 schools (K12 and post-secondary) continue to be popular and foster student mobility.

-- 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.

-- Knowledge of the English language is regarded as a key requirement in finding a job.

-- Canada is growing in popularity amongst the students and it continues to be perceived as a safe and friendly country by their parents.

As a result of these factors, Italian youth are looking to go abroad in order to invest in their languages and have a more international profile that will make them stand out in the extremely competitive domestic labour markets.

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.

Space is limited, therefore we encourage you to register early. Any remaining spaces after the September 6th deadline will be allocated at the discretion of the Embassy.

List of Edu-Canada Events and Market Reports are available at Edu-Canada PRO (http://www.tradecommissioner.gc.ca/edu-canadapro/index.jsp)

Further to the Brand Use Eligibility Policy jointly established by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) and the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC), K-12 schools, post-secondary education institutions and language schools are invited to consult the provincial lists of eligible institutions on the Brand extranet at http://www.imagine.cmec.ca/en/zone/

If the institution is on the list, it is eligible to participate to the event. If it is not on the list, it is not eligible to participate unless there is clear and written consent of the province/territory where the institution is located.

Private schools authorized to use the curriculum of a province/territory outside of Canada are eligible to participate in the event as sponsors but will be positioned separately (in a non-branded area).

Banks, airlines and insurance companies offering services to students may participate as sponsors and will be situated in the non-branded area.

Education or immigration agents are not eligible to participate in the event, with the sole exception of agents designated by an eligible institution. In that case, agents are responsible to the institution that engaged their services and must adhere to all event guidelines and agent policy

We look forward to meeting you in Italy!
