Dubai, March 20, 2012
Amity University Dubai, a premier institution for higher education in the UAE, will be showcasing its complete line-up of 22 industry-specific courses during the education expo Getex 2012 in Dubai.
Getex 2012 will take place from April 19 to 21 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Getex also revealed that Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), Al Hosn University and Abu Dhabi University will be participating as sponsors of Getex 2012.
Anselm Godinho, managing director of event organisers International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E), said: “Leveraging our strategic partnership with distinguished academic institutions such as Amity University Dubai, Getex continues to gain momentum in creating a truly comprehensive showcase of world-class academic and professional development programs.”
“Getex will once again serve as the definitive venue that brings together thought leaders and key education stakeholders from all over the world to gather insights and cultivate in-depth discussions that will ultimately further enhance the culture of excellence in the region’s academic sector.”
Atul Chauhan, chancellor, Amity University, said: “Getex is one of the largest and most anticipated education events in the Middle East. It provides an ideal platform for academics, decision makers and key players in the education sector to share best practices, information and knowledge for the overall benefit of the academic community.”
“Through our participation at Getex, we hope to increase awareness of our presence here and extend a host of options to students, not only in regular disciplines but also in niche areas that are gaining increased importance in the region such as nano-technology, nuclear science, solar and alternate energy and forensic science,” he added.
Getex 2012 will gather more than 500 institutions and no less than 2,500 academic, vocational and training programmes. Over 30,000 visitors from across the Middle East are also expected to attend the event. – TradeArabia News Service
