Getex to offer 2000 study options
Dubai, March 3, 2011
Getex 2011, the leading education, training and professional development event, will offer more than 2000 study and training options in over 35 countries during its three-day run next month in Dubai.
The event will run from April 14 to 16 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
While more than 400 exhibitors are participating in the event, at least 30,000 visitors are expected to attend, organisers International Conferences & Exhibitions (IC&E) said.
The highlight of Getex 2011 will include three subject-specific excellence forums in engineering, healthcare & medicine and business & finance specifically for final year graduating students and working professionals.
These forums will be hosted by academic and industry professionals and is aimed to bridge the existing gap between education and industry.
Getex 2011 will feature the Global EdTech Forum, a conference and skill-building workshop series hosted in conjunction with US-based International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
"Education is a crucial factor in cultivating the socio-economic development of any society. This is the reason why governments across the Middle East region continue to allocate a significant portion of the national budget on education,” said Anselm Godinho, managing director, IC&E.
“The fundamental aim of Getex 2011 is to complement the growing focus on education by providing a centralised platform that offers the best academic options, education technologies and networking opportunities for all key stakeholders of the education sector in the Middle East,” he added.
Apart from the student recruitment potential Getex provides, visitors will have the opportunity to browse through technologies including interactive classroom simulation, engineering modelling technology, remote communication and library access and virtual classrooms. – TradeArabia News Service
