Gulf Education Conference and Exhibition addresses the challenges and opportunities facing the education sector in the region and the future education needs of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The conference will be chaired by David Lock, Gulf Education Chairman and opened by an impressive line-up of Ministers and VIPs, under the esteemed patronage of the Federation of Gulf Chambers of Commerce and in partnership with University of Business and Technology.
In 2015, following four successful years in London and in response to huge demand, the organizers moved the event from London to Gulf Region. The 5th Gulf Education Conference and Exhibition, held in Abu Dhabi was kindly hosted at the Emirates Centre for Strategic Studies and Research, under the esteemed patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development of the United Arab Emirates and Ministerial Delegation.
The agenda was strongly focused on the further development of the education system and curricula throughout the Gulf to meet the needs of employers and centered on key areas of education, employment, and vocational training. It saw key innovators in education advising and sharing their experiences and attended by more than 400 people including delegates, participants, speakers and media. It received extensive press coverage across the Gulf media including television and radio and was considered a resounding success.
The 6th Gulf Education Conference will focus on instigating innovation in education, enabling educators and governments to identify clear policies that benefit the countries’ national workforce. It provides an enormous opportunity for foreign education organizations both in the Public and Private Sectors who seek greater engagement with the Gulf region to network and create a business relationship with Further and Higher Education Officials, Ministries and Commercial organizations involved in the Education profession.
Running alongside the conference, the Gulf Education Exhibition will showcase a vast range of outstanding educational institutes from across the world, enabling them to engage with an estimated 10,000 students and their families invited by the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce Committee for Education and UBT. This event is a great occasion for all to dialog, connect and be directly involved in shaping the education system within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and one not to be missed.
