TOURS

We are committed to helping you achieve your student recruitment goals – whether that is in person or virtually.

Travel Events

The AEO Tour offers multiple options throughout the year to assist you in your recruitment goals. We are hopeful to return to our face-to-face tours in Asia next Fall 2021.

AEO Tour offers the best student recruitment tours of Asia. Between our 2021 Fall tours, we will visit 14 cities in Asia. As usual, the AEO Tour is 30–60 percent lower in cost than any other tour. Not only do we offer affordable tours, the cities we choose have proven to be excellent markets for recruiting high quality, full fee-paying international markets. We are confident that we provide the best value and high ROI for any university and college in the USA.

Virtual Events

To accommodate universities and colleges during the 20-21 school year, AEO Tour has offered and will continue to offer multiple virtual events throughout East and Southeast Asia. We are mindful of the challenges facing international recruitment this school year and have created a variety of events for every budget. These events have proven to not only be very effective, but very affordable for you. A staple of AEO Tour is to provide affordable recruitment events that you will give you a high ROI. We are excited to offer the following events below for 2021!

Student Leads & Digital College Advertising  – 6 Month or 12 Month Options

  • Receive student leads without sacrificing sleep! Sign up for our student leads!
  • Your school will not only get advertising to thousands of students across Asia each month, but you will also receive student leads that come in at the beginning of each month.
  • Students are more independent now than ever before and are researching universities and colleges on their own. Rather than staying up all night hoping a student will show up to your fair, create a targeted profile with us and make it easier for them to find you.
  • We will create a profile specifically catered to your college/university that will include your institution name, logo, contact name & email, your top 5 majors, location and any attachments and/or links to connect or schedule a virtual appointment with you. Your profile will be included on a landing page on our website that students will need to enter their information first to gain access to.
  • Your institution’s profile, as well as the landing page, will be advertised through paid targeted ads on Facebook, Google, YouTube, and Instagram – targeting quality students.
  • Students will be targeted in Southeast and East Asia. The countries that will be targeted in Southeast Asia will include: Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore & Cambodia. The countries that will be targeted in East Asia will include: Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.
  • Participating universities and colleges will receive analytics and a complete list of student leads at the beginning of each month that will be ready to upload into your CRM. 
  • Student information that will be collected will include: Student First & Last Name, Email, Gender, School Name, Date of Birth, Residing Country, Country of Citizenship, Phone, Intended Level of Study in the USA, Intended Area of Study (Major), Intended Year to Start Study in the USA, Level of Program you want to pursue in the USA, Region in the USA you are interested in living/studying, and Type of School you are interested in. 
  • Participating universities and colleges will have the flexibility to adjust and add to their profiles at any time.

AEO Tour Week of Virtual Workshops/Presentations (East & SE Asia) – Sunday, Feb. 21st – Saturday, Feb. 27th, 2021

    • We have seen a ton of interest and participation in our presentations and wanted to create a week specifically catered to helpful presentations/workshops for students. The idea of this week is to offer a less competitive event for university and college reps to be able to present to a large number of students, as well as providing a less intimidating event for students that is not a one-on-one zoom meeting or fair.  
    • Each day of the week, there will be two to four 30-minute workshops/presentations (12-20 spots in total). Universities and colleges that register will be assigned one 30-minute workshop/presentation slot. Your presentation/workshop can certainly go over 30 minutes and you can stay on as long as there is student interest.
    • Nearly all costs will go towards advertising on behalf of the participating universities and colleges to generate attendance and student leads.
    • An event website will be created for students to learn about each participating university and college.
    • All student leads will be collected and sent to each participating university and college for the entirety of the week. In the event that you do not have as many students attend your presentation – do not worry – you will still receive all student leads from the week.
    • Obviously, we want to encourage each participating university and college to talk about their respective institutions, but we want to encourage reps to provide presentation topics that are catchy, out of the box, and most importantly helpful for international students. For example, presentation topics such as managing stress abroad, balancing a social life with school work, connecting with the community as an international student, tips for how to apply for your Visa, tips on how to network and get internships, etc.
    • Space is limited and if you would like to team up with another institution to save money and enhance your presentation, that is great!

Cost: $1,000

    • For those that participated during our week of visits in the fall, the schedule will be a little more user-friendly for you 🙂

    • Specific time slots will be arranged for M/W/F and another set will be arranged for T/Th. We will try to avoid super late nights followed by an early morning.
    • To further maximize the week, a virtual public fair will be offered at the end of the week only for the participating universities and colleges. The majority of the costs will go towards advertising. This fair will only be open to the participating universities and colleges that sign up for the week.
    • Participating schools will be from South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
