overview

As the Chinese population strives for bilingual and westernised education, the international and private school market is booming. The local industry generates close to $4bn in annual tuition fees income, reports ISC Research. The market though is grappling with untapped opportunities in some regions, and saturation in the others.

IBC Asia’s 4th International Schools China once again returns to address the challenges confronting a fragmented market, growth and innovation opportunities, and most importantly, showcasing strategies for enhancing student outcomes.

Conference Highlights

  • The ONLY such conference with a focus on international and private schools
  • 3rd successive year with demonstrated success and proven industry support
  • Executive Leadership Roundtable on school strategy, innovation and growth
  • School case studies on growth strategies, going digital, and innovation in teaching
