Recent Attendance at Events Exceeded Expectations; Robust 2015 Schedule for Brick Buy Brick Brand
CAPE CORAL, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2015 / Legacy Education Alliance, Inc. (LEAI), a leading provider of educational training seminars, conferences and services, announces that attendance at its recent international events in Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City drew attendance beyond original corporate expectations. The Company has targeted international expansion as an area for growth over the next few years. Approximately 25 percent of Legacy's previously reported $75 million revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was internationally comprised, largely from seminars and other events that were held in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Expansion to new cities is part of Legacy's ongoing growth strategy over the next few years. The recent success in Southeast Asia highlights the Company's opportunities in new geographic regions as local people demonstrated interest in educational programs for both local and international investing as well as real estate. Due to this success, the Company expects to bring its brands and courses to cities in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa in 2015.
Currently, the upcoming international March schedule includes Zurich, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Vienna, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Taiwan, London, Paris and Perth.
Anthony Humpage, CEO of Legacy Education Alliance, said, "The attendance and enthusiasm shown for our brands and courses in the international markets support our strategy and plans to bring our brands to cities worldwide. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive all around the globe and we're happy that our brands have been well-received internationally. Our courses are great educational resources and education is a driving force of success."
