International School Fair in Johor Draws a Huge Crowd


The 13th Private & International School Fair in Johor held last Saturday at the Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel attracted almost 600 visitors. Organised by Mint Communications, the Private & International School Fairs have been connecting parents and their children with leading international schools in Malaysia since 2012. Over the years, both local and expatriate parents have visited these fairs to learn more about the options in international schools and boarding opportunities for their children.

According to Nickie Yew, Co-Founder and Director of Mint Communications, “The large number of visitors who attended the fair last weekend reflects the continuous demand for international school education in Johor despite the pandemic’s effects on the economy. Parents in Johor who missed this fair can also visit the 14th Private & International School Fair in Johor in October 2022 or visit the Education Destination Malaysia website for information on international schools.”
