As part of IIE's services to students and universities, the Bangkok office organized fairs from 1982 to 2014. IIE's Higher Education fairs across Asia allowed thousands of students to speak face-to-face with admission representatives of U.S. colleges and universities. The Fairs in Asia offered participants an opportunity to:
- Gather information on a variety of academic programs, including community colleges, undergraduate, and postgraduate studies
- Speak directly with admission representatives and alumni from accredited U.S. institutions
- Attend seminars about university applications, visa requirements, available scholarships, and student life in the U.S.
