Virtual Executive Events

 

Introduction

We are a global leader in market research, strategic advisory and bespoke data-driven recruitment and networking events in the international education sector.

While we look forward to welcoming our delegates to physical events once international travel resumes, we are also thrilled to deliver a turnkey virtual event solution for our clients to continue building long-lasting relationships with key decision makers at carefully selected, screened and trusted agencies, universities, schools, media and other stakeholders across the globe, and attract prospective students.

Leveraging a combination of in-depth market and agent intelligence, our 13-year experience and track record (130+ tailored B2B & B2G events such as trade missions, familiarization tours, press tours, workshops, roundtables, panels, seminars and webinars) and reliable event technology, the Virtual Executive Events build upon key features of success, leading to increased international student enrolment and long-term success.

BONARD’s exclusive Virtual Executive Events bring together a group of institutions (usually associated with government-led cohort, destination organisation or sector association) and well-matched quality partners from target source markets to forge strategic partnerships, gain access to premium content, stay abreast of latest industry developments and emerging trends, and continue to grow in the new normal.

Our events are bespoke and tailored to the needs of each individual client, with full support from BONARD’s team of Cvent-certified event managers and digital marketers in all stages (planning, selection of partners, recruitment, complete virtual event management and post-event follow-up).

We know from our years of experience communicating with schools, agencies and stakeholders that bespoke recruitment and networking events offer a cost-effective and hassle-free partnership-building opportunity and collective marketing tool of proven worth for the international education sector.

Typically, Virtual Executive Events take place in half-day sessions across one or two days per source market and include market intelligence webinars given by government officials and industry experts, and pre-scheduled business appointments with up to 20 pre-selected agencies/stakeholders per city/country/region.  

Virtual Executive Events under our management are also supported by Embassy/Consulate officials, facilitating rapid immersion in the local source market and the necessary platform to discuss schools’ commercial needs and long-term support in the market.
