Hosting GSM and the agencies was such a good experience for the staff and the all those involved. I hope that the agents were able to get a better picture of our campus and the culture of the South. We hope that GSM and the agencies were able to experience Southern Hospitality. Hosting this event is a very worthwhile experience and we hope to do it again in the very near future.

Study Tennessee enjoyed the opportunity to work with the GSM Roadshow to promote its member schools with agents across Southeast Asia. The event was organized extremely well and afforded our member institutions opportunities which we would otherwise not have.

Valencia College
The GSM fair offered a good opportunity to meet with agencies that had a good balance of number of agencies/schools and time with each agent, so we had a better chance to get to know each other.

This is my second event with GSM and both have been well organized and professional, but friendly and welcoming as well. The follow up from both Stephen and Dzung has been invaluable and helpful to say the least both Stephen and Dzung are hard working, diligent and very responsive to emails and getting the answers you need. If you are looking for a well run event with a good variety of agents and excellent follow up GSM is the way to go.
Victoria Monaco – International Student Director

The GSM Roadshow was a great forum for meeting new agents and colleagues alike. The event was efficient and well-run. Definitely worth attending to make new connections in growing markets.
Patrick Lawson – Associate Director of Boarding Admission
Oklahoma City University
This is the second GSM roadshow I have participated in and I must say that Stephen and Dzung did not cease to impress yet again. The event was organized well from lead up to finish. I also appreciated the addition of Thailand and Cambodia market presentations during the breaks. Above all, the roadshow was great value for money in providing a stateside location where I could connect with existing partners while also meeting new agencies that would have otherwise required multiple overseas travel stops.

This was a wonderful event. We thought this was a great opportunity to meet agents and learn about the business.

GSM came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint. I appreciated the pre- and post-event support, professionalism, attention to detail, and excellent organization of ALL the events, from airport pickup to hotel recommendations to meals to high school visits to fairs and agent meetings. Whew! Well done Stephen and Dzung! GSM has allowed me access to many agencies in Vietnam and I look forward to following up!

GSM provides a well-organized experience with a good blend of student fairs and meetings with agents who have already been vetted. Reasonable prices with excellent facilities make this a great choice for schools looking to grow their international populations. Ms. Pham and Mr. Clegg provide fantastic service and are wonderful travel companions!

GSM has earned our respect and trust for their professionalism, attention to details and meeting the needs of their clients. This was a first time for me and my institution to be travelling to Vietnam and Cambodia. GSM did an excellent job in making sure that every details are taken care of in terms of scheduling students fair, agent fair, meals and transportation.

Great event. Stephen and Dzung put on a well organized roadshow. We were able to meet some very strong agents, and follow up with them at the end of the month at their fall fair. Thanks for all your hard work.

The Fall 2017 USA Roadshow was our very first GSM event and we were very impressed! From the very beginning and even on the day of the event, Stephen and Dzung provided us personalized services to make sure we could make the most out of this event. We felt that this event was planned and organized very well. We would like to participate in other GSM events in the future.

I met with some really great agencies, all of whom had great questions. I truly enjoyed the day.
Kathi Spaulding – Graduate Admission Counselor

This was my third GSM roadshow and I will continue to support their events as there is a direct correlation between doing their events and growing our program. Dzung and Stephen really care about the schools and agents they work with and I can always count on them for help. I am disappointed I can’t do the fall tour, but plan to do the next fall tour, and will be on the spring tour. Thank you GSM for all that you do to help Olympic College’s international program grow!

GSM did an exceptional job with the USA Roadshow Fall 2017. From lead-up correspondences and organization through to the activities on the day and post-event follow ups. The quality of international educators in attendences was also impressive. We will certainly continue collaborating with GSM and look forward to joining future events.

The goals of student success, access, and of international education as a whole are driven by the connections we make. GSM not only helps to create opportunities for connection but GSM does the work ahead of time to make sure that the talents and interests of the counseling agencies present are a good fit with the goals of our universities in the US.

I had a fantastic experience with GSM in Vietnam. I appreciated all the arrangements done by the GSM team and all the work they put into the 3 cities events. It was my first time getting into a high school in Vietnam and I appreciated the opportunity to connect with key Agencies during the matching events and students during the school visits. I think it was a very successful event for my institution.

The GSM Higher Education Fair Vietnam Fall 2016 definitely exceeded my expectations. The ambitious itinerary was carried out with ultimate professionalism. The school visits and the agency fairs were well organized and well attended. Springfield College will continue to partner with GSM as we truly value their commitment to excellence as well as their local market contacts and expertise.
Brian McGuinness – Director, Assistant Director Doggett International Center

I did not know what to expect from GSM since the name was fairly new to me. I was thrilled by the value, the venues, and the quality of the schools, agents, and students we visited. The fair series was well organized and as such we were able to pack in a lot of recruiting activities in a day. I will not only be returning to do their other fairs, but will be sharing their fair series with my colleagues. Within 2 weeks of the event we received 4 applications from 2 of the agencies met on the tour!

GSM provided a great opportunity for the participants, both the schools and the agencies. By attending the roadshow, I was able to make contacts with agents that I would never have been able to do on my own. In addition, GSM ensured that all participants were of good reputation and fully accredited. From start (the first e-mail which gave information about the event) to finish (the closing reception), the roadshow was done in a very professional and satisfying manner. If I ever have an opportunity participate in a GSM-sponsored event, I will certainly do so.

CLU has found great value in the agent workshops we have attended. The agencies have been well vetted and represent a wide range of geographies and academic interests for the students they serve. I appreciate the amount of 1:1 time with the agencies as we share ideas and develop partnerships that are designed to best serve students during the each stage of the process from the college search, to application & matriculation, and enrollment & graduation.

What is particularly impressive about GSM is their focus on quality over quantity for international higher education partnerships. In addition to the attentive efforts they put into their vetting processes and event management, GSM goes above and beyond in the level of before/after care they provide for their member institutions and agencies. It is with great regard that I highly recommend GSM.
