We believe in relevance of events. And for any event to be relevant we know what matters the most, being on time. All our events are timed according to the demand of the market. Edufest is annually held after the conclusion of final examinations and EduOptions just after the declaration of the results. This makes it possible for us to garner maximum footfall and at the same time provide the students the necessary window to decide and take the next big career step.
Stay one-step ahead of other colleges and universities and tap the students when they are looking for the best possible higher studies & career options both nationally and internationally.
Scheduled just after the declaration of major examinations in the targetted locations, EduOptions is the perfect place to market your Institute for those who need it the most, at the perfect time.
Lynchpin exhibitions are the most trusted brands among the students and the visiting education institutes for admissions, making them India’s best attended and most effective student recruitment fairs.
The exhibitions are a cost effective platform to target key student markets in North East attracting the most premium education brands in India and abroad.
We do not allow any agent /consultant participation ensuring that only genuine students visit our fairs.
Edufest and Edu-Options are India’s only education fair series with sponsorship and participation of the British Council, USEFI, Thai Government, and World’s Top 20 Universities.
Only accredited institutions are invited to Lynchpin’s education exhibitions to ensure that the region’s students get the opportunity to enroll in the very best.
Our media partners are selected keeping every state in mind and we associate with print and television leaders in the North-Eastern states.
Headquartered locally (Guwahati), we have the requisite knowledge of the region vital in organising exhibitions in this sensitive region.
North East Student Market
66.35% of North East students migrate for higher studies, out of which, 78.15% for graduate studies, 11.48% for Engineering/managerial, 6.80% for Research/Ph. D. and 3.57% for medical studies.
North East India has the lowest ratio of Higher Education institutions to students
According to University Grants Commission (UGC) data, over five lakh students from eight states of the northeast ventured outside the region last year due to lack of proper higher education facilities.
Easy Availability of education loans and rising incomes of parents has enabled them to invest money in their child's education and send them out of the region for quality education.
Apart from catering to the students of the North-Eastern states and Siliguri, Lynchpin has also organised education exhibitions for several International government agencies apart from our own international events.
In 2007, we organised the Study New Zealand Roadshow in Kathmandu Nepal for the New Zealand Trade and Enterprise to showcase and promote New Zealand as a study destination among students of Nepal.
We also conducted Study Thailand Education Fair in Kathmandu, Nepal in the year 2008 with the Department of Export Promotion, Government Of Thailand to promote studying in Thailand Universities among the students of Nepal. The event had a large contingent of Thai Universities which promoted their international programmes.
We travelled further South East and held the Study in
India exhibition in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2013. This event was supported
by the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh. The event showcased
prominent Indian Universities and Colleges to expose the students to
study opportunities in India.
In the year 2014, we organised the 4th Bhutan International Education Fair in Thimphu, Bhutan in association with BCCI (Bhutan Chamber of Commerce and Industry) where top universities and colleges from the world over connected with the students of Bhutan.
