SiS at NAFSA Keeps Growing Despite Economic Downturn

Consolidated as the most important event in the international education sector in the United States, NAFSA’s growth in the last decade has been incredible, as well as the demand of this kind of educational service. In the past ten years, the number of exhibitors at the trade show has doubled and the number of American students studying abroad has seen an increase of 150%.

After the United Kingdom and Italy, no other country receives more American students than Spain. Accordingly, a large number of Spanish institutions decided to come to the United States, at least once a year, to participate at the NAFSA Conference. In this year’s edition, celebrated at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 28 Spanish universities, along with some business and language schools, were recruiting students in the Spanish Pavilion, coordinated by EDUESPAÑA and the Embassy of Spain-Trade Commission in Miami.

Although there were fewer attendants than other years, Spanish institutions were satisfied with the results. They came to Los Angeles with an agenda of meetings with universities from all over the world. Next year’s edition will take place in Kansas City and Study in Spain will be present once more.
