Educational Fairs

Dear Partner,

On behalf of Global Link Educational Centre, I’m pleased to invite your institution to participate in our annual international fair “Education Abroad 2016being held on January 23d – 24th in Moscow, Russia.

First held nine years ago, our educational fair specifically addresses the growing needs of the Russian market in receiving up-to-date information regarding education abroad. The upcoming event is an opportunity for your institution to display your programs to over 2000 prospective students and their parents.

This year our Fair will be held on Saturday, January 23d and Sunday, January 24th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Golden Ring Hotel, located in downtown Moscow. The aim of the fair is to provide an opportunity for Russian parents to meet with the boarding schools and colleges’ representatives with a view to choosing the right school or program for their child. Personal contacts with schools are vitally important for parents intending to send their children for studies abroad. It adds parents’ confidence about their child staying in another country.
