ApplyBoard Doubles Attendance at Second Top Recruiters Workshop
ApplyBoard hosted its second Top Recruiters Workshop from Thursday, September 19 to Friday, September 20, 2019. Held in Delhi (Gurgaon), India, the two-day event brought together 10 of ApplyBoard’s exclusive Canadian partner schools and hundreds of top recruitment partners to discuss the latest trends in Canada’s international recruitment market.
Our philosophy for this Top Recruiters Workshop was to do it bigger and better than the first event held earlier this year in March. In this regard, we were hugely successful! Over 500 attendees filled the event hall at the Hyatt Regency Gurgaon for a variety of engaging presentations and live entertainment. This group comprised some of ApplyBoard’s most valued recruitment partners from not just India, but Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, United States, and more!

The event kicked off with a special presentation from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Elena Balboa, Manager of the Students and Workers Unit at the High Commission of Canada in New Delhi, discussed Canadian Visa Insights. It was an honour to have Elena’s participation and we thank the IRCC for their support in partnering with us for this workshop!
In addition to presentations from all 10 schools in attendance, the audience was treated to talks from both ApplyBoard co-founders. CMO Meti Basiri discussed the benefits of studying in Canada for international students, while CEO Martin Basiri gave a keynote presentation on the future of ApplyBoard. Martin also officially unveiled ApplyBoard’s latest product, ApplyProof – a new documentation verification centre, allowing for tighter security and increased transparency. We’re so excited to offer ApplyProof to all our trusted recruitment partners. Get full details on the service here.
