Getex to target Bahraini, Saudi students
Manama, October 26, 2010
Getex Autumn, the leading education, training and professional development event, will target students and working professionals from Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
The two-day Getex Autumn Bahrain will open tomorrow (October 27) at Gulf Hotel in Manama.
Offering enormous market potential to leading universities and training institutes participating at Getex Autumn, Bahrain is home to more than 70,000 learners who are finishing higher secondary studies and will be looking for various college programmes, while the country also serves as an important gateway to learners, students and professionals from neighbouring Saudi Arabia, a statement said.
Bahrain represents a key market for leading educational providers because of the high importance of education in the country's cultural milieu, as manifested by the compulsory education policy and free-education programs implemented by the government as well as the country's 87 per cent literacy rate, which is one of the highest in the region, it added.
"Bahrain remains an important component in the Getex Autumn series because of the huge number of potential learners in the country,” said Anselm Godinho, managing director, International Conferences & Exhibitions (IC&E), organisers of the event.
“Getex Autumn has also successfully leveraged the strong education culture in the country, which has been a key factor in establishing Getex as the most widely anticipated academic showcase in Bahrain. Following the huge turnout in 2009, we are again confident of another impressive participation this year from learners, students and parents from Bahrain as well as in neighbouring Saudi Arabia,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
