Capstone StudyGlobal Education Fairs in Vietnam

FALL 2023


Capstone Education cordially invites you to participate in its annual fall StudyGlobal Education Fairs that features three (3) cities in all three regions of Vietnam. Our fairs are open to all approved and accredited secondary and postsecondary institutions. (Note: US colleges and universities must be regionally accredited.)

There are four participation options:

1. In-person participation: Colleagues travel to Vietnam to represent their institutions.
2. Use of an in-country representative: This includes alumni, parents, and staff. 
3. Online participation: You chat with students and parents with the assistance of Capstone student volunteers. One will be at the venue to greet visitors, collect contact information for follow-up, answer basic questions, and distribute promotional materials and another will be in one of our offices to facilitate the conversation/translation. 
4. Literature only: A carefully selected and trained Capstone student volunteer greets visitors, answers basic questions, collects contact information for follow-up, and distributes promotional materials.

Only officially approved high schools, officially accredited institutions of higher education and, in the case of the US, regionally accredited colleges and universities, are allowed to join our fairs. This is good both for you and the students/parents who attend our fairs, for whom quality is of paramount importance. Honor by association is a win-win proposition.


The fairs are offered in key primary and secondary markets representing all three regions of Vietnam. Let us know if you have any questions about which cities are most suitable for your institution and its unique profile.

Outreach to local schools

that send sizable numbers of graduates to study overseas. This includes large group meetings, classroom visits and mini-fairs. (We try to arrange mini-fairs, whenever possible.)

Convenient and quick online registration

and access to important fair-related documents, plus informative pre-fair updates.

Organic attendance

Capstone prides itself on reaching out to and attracting bona fide students to its fairs through quality and ethical digital and offline marketing. 

Post-fair follow-up

Our staff follow up on all leads. We will also translate a message into Vietnamese that you draft for your student contacts, including fairs and school visits – at no additional charge.


We always look for the best fit institutions for students and their parents. In addition, our fair attendance is organic.

Free initial advising services

Are provided to all participants. 100% of the advising fee (except visa counseling if desired) is refunded, if students enroll in a partner school.


Capstone Vietnam is one of Vietnam’s leading educational consulting companies. We pride ourselves on our commitment to innovation, excellence, and ethical business practices. While our official slogan is Reaching New Heights, we wholeheartedly embrace the unattributed saying, Success Without Integrity is Failure.   

Authoritative country briefing

by Dr. Mark Ashwill, an international educator who has lived and worked in Vietnam since 2005 and first traveled to the country in 1996.




• The HCMC and Hanoi fairs are scheduled from 2:00-6:00 p.m. (GMT +7), while the Danang fair will be held from 4-8 p.m. (GMT +7). 
• Domestic transportation: We fly from HCMC to Hanoi and Hanoi to Danang.
• The fee includes fair registration, student volunteers, full staff support in each city, and ground transportation to related events. The country briefing and high school visits are optional. The fee does not include domestic flights or hotels (We're happy to help you make these arrangements - at no charge. We can add the cost to your invoice or bill you separately.) All of the related activities are part of a package, meaning there is no reimbursement, should you decide not to participate in one or more of them.

Final Registration Deadline

Attendees have the option of registering online, the main advantage of which is streamlined entry to the fair, or on-site registration. Our goal, in the words of one colleague, is “to attract authentic prospective students.” We dot our bureaucratic i’s and cross our t’s, meaning we secure all the necessary permissions from the authorities for the fairs and related activities.

Capstone invests a considerable amount in marketing and promoting its fairs series, including junior high/high school outreach, online marketing, extensive use of social media (e.g., Facebook), email blasts, a promotional video, flyer and poster distribution, phone calls, text messages, and the use of teams of student volunteers in each fair city, and through our own networks, which consist of Vietnamese of means who are interested in sending their children to study overseas.

marketing and promotion


We publish a colorful and informative fair guide that is distributed free of charge to all attendees. Each participating institution will have a free one-page profile in the fair guide. It provides basic information about the institution, including selling points, academic programs, tuition and fees, admission requirements, etc. It also contains articles of interest to students and parents. The digital fair guide is posted on Capstone’s Issuu page. Only institutions that submit their institutional profile by the priority deadline will be included in the fair guide.


We offer three promotional opportunities, in addition to the usual pre-fair publicity, designed to generate additional student and parent interest in your institution.




You have a choice of two ads - at modest cost - to help brand your institution and signal your interest in welcoming Vietnamese students to your campus. This opportunity is available to all officially approved high schools and accredited institutions for higher education, regardless of whether they participate in the fair series. 


Color Half Page (at the end of the fair guide) / [Size/Height 195mm x Width 106mm] 

US$ 400 

Color Full Page (next to your profile) / [Size/Height 195mm x Width 215 mm] 

US$ 600 


If you have not already done so, it is essential to have your promotional materials translated into Vietnamese. Keep in mind that most Vietnamese parents do not read English and they are the key decision-makers, after all.
We can also arrange to have your promotional materials printed in-country at additional cost. The advantages of in-country printing are convenience (e.g., no problems with Customs) and substantial cost-savings, including printing and shipping. Contact us for details.
We also offer these packages to launch before and/or after the fairs, so please let us know your interest and budget for a customized design. This is a fee-based service that is in addition to the pre-event marketing we do for the series as a whole, by city, and by institution. 



We look forward to welcoming you (back) to Vietnam!

The reasons for having fairs in Hanoi and HCMC are known to most recruiters. They are the two most important urban centers in Vietnam with a combined population of nearly 15 million. The former is the nation’s political capital while the latter is the country's economic engine. Many families in both cities have both the interest in overseas study and the ability to pay for it.  

Since you’re here, you’ve probably already answered this question to your satisfaction but just in case you or your colleagues need more information and a stronger justification for investing in a fair series, let us know. 

Why Vietnam?

Let us know if you would like information about Danang, which is a secondary market.

Capstone Education

is a full-service educational consulting company with offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). It was co-founded as Capstone Vietnam in 2009 by Dr. Mark Ashwill, an education entrepreneur and international educator who first traveled to Vietnam in 1996 and has lived here since 2005. Its unique business model addresses the needs of both institutional and individual clients. While the latter refer to parents and students, the former encompass secondary and postsecondary institutions with an interest in Vietnamese student recruitment and other work in Vietnam. The StudyGlobal Education Fairs, offered every fall and spring, are one of our institutional services related to recruitment. Capstone is the only company in Vietnam, and probably the world, that works exclusively with regionally accredited institutions of higher education in the US and officially accredited schools in other countries.

We are pleased to invite you and your institution to join our fall StudyGlobal Education Fairs from September 15-19 in HCMC, Hanoi, and Danang.
