250 institutes from 24 countries set to participate in the 13th Gulf Education and Training Exhibition


Over 12,000 visitors expected to attend the annual educational event

21 March 2001

The Gulf Education & Training Exhibition, the largest student recruitment event in the Arab world, is expected to attract 250 participating institutes from over 24 countries this year. This year’s event will take place on the 24th until 27th of April 2001 at the Dubai World Trade Center.

The show, which will be held under the Patronage of H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Bin Mubarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, will showcase over 30,000 educational programs and courses from the UAE, Bahrain, Australia, USA, Germany, UK, Canada, France, Malaysia and many more countries to students attending this year’s exhibition.

After the great success of last year’s show, which attracted over 12,300 people and covered an area of 3,600 sq. meters, predictions for this year’s attendance are even higher, aiming not only at students but also parents, teachers and manpower training specialists. The exhibition is set to provide visitors with an ideal opportunity to experience a series of ‘hands on’ seminars showcasing information about the range of educational options available worldwide.

“The Gulf Education and Training Exhibition has established itself as the largest, most extensively publicized and successful student recruitment event in the Middle East, enjoying positive feedback and a growing number of participants from all sectors,” commented David Domoney, Managing Director, International Conferences


& Exhibitions, organisers of the show. “The comprehensive range of issues covered throughout the exhibition provide a core source of up-to-date information allowing a far greater insight into the best opportunities available for individuals and institutions alike.”

Approximately 10,000 pupils graduate from UAE private schools each year, many of whom continue to seek education abroad. While educational opportunities in the UAE show substantial growth, a high percentage of student’s -including Indians, Pakistanis, non-UAE Arab nationals and British expatriates– continue to choose overseas institutions. Many are drawn to areas such as North America, the UK and Australia, where they may have existing family ties. ‘The Students Lounge’ at the show will provide a meeting place for many such students, and offers the latest courses available worldwide.

Priority areas that will be dealt with during the show include engineering, computer science and IT, medicine, dentistry, business administration and financial management. Other popular choices include agriculture, environmental science and pharmaceuticals.

“The 12th annual Gulf Education and Training Exhibition was a well-organized high quality exhibition,” stated Arjumand Abdullah, Marketing Services, Dubai Polytechnic. “The event was a huge success with a large number of exhibitors and a sustained stream of visitors even on the weekend. In response to the event, we have estimated over 3000 enquiries”.

 “The exhibition was fantastic and very valuable to Preston University and we will certainly attend next year’s event,” said Dr Jerry Haenisch, Chancellor of Preston University.

“The response from the Arab region to our participation was very positive and strong,” stated a spokesman from Sydney University, Australia.

About the Exhibition:

The Exhibition will be opened daily from 1000 - 1300h and 1700 - 2100h at Halls 5a & 5 at the Dubai World Trade Center and admission is free.
