NAFSA Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, USA
May 31 - June 3, 2022


Poster Session: What You Need to Know When Recruiting from Mexico
Wednesday, June 1 from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

We are proud to announce that our poster will be featured in this year's NAFSA's Conference. This poster features data and market intelligence from the brand new Mexico Market Report which Jackfruit Marketing created for BMI.

As the second biggest market in Latin America, opportunities abound for recruiters across the education spectrum, from language and summer schools up to tertiary institutions.

The report begins with a review of Mexico’s enrolments across key states in the country. We then turn our gaze outwards, presenting a lengthy track record of statistics for destination markets. Mexico’s story is further played out via a wide range of figures and insights covering the economy, social media, latest trends and growth opportunities. Our desk and field research gives you the data you need combined with our on-the-ground experience and insights into Mexico’s education evolution.

Interactive Session: The Impact of Engaging Parents and Families as Strategic Partners

Thursday, June 2 from 9:30 AM – 10:20 AM

Jackfruit Marketing joins a panel of experts to discuss frameworks for engaging parents as strategic partners in internationalisation through the lens of global partnerships, marketing, and alumni relations. We will lead facilitated discussions to identify ways to develop internal partnerships to manage and motivate enthusiastic family volunteers from major and emerging markets to be impactful institutional brand ambassadors.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define why engaging parents and families as strategic partners creates new opportunities to sustain internationalisation.
  • Identify internal campus partnerships to begin new programmes.
  • Understand the importance of a coordinated relationship management approach across the institution.
  • Harness the enthusiasm of family volunteers from major and emerging markets to be institutional spokespersons and brand ambassadors.
