Dubai will play host to the Gulf Educational Supplies and Solutions (GESS), the region’s only event that showcases the latest in educational supplies and solutions at Dubai World Trade Centre from February 24 to 26, 2015.
In its 8th year, GESS 2015 will host 350 exhibitors from 35 countries with more than 9,000 regional and international education professionals expected to attend. GESS 2015 gives attendees what no other event in the region does with its wide range of education products, live demonstrations, and a chance to network and collaborate with other education professionals, organisers say.
Highlights for GESS 2015 include the Global Education Forum (GEF), a world-class educational programme to help teachers, educators, and academics develop their skills and learn practical teaching methods.
Over 100 international and regional speakers and 10 internationally renowned keynote speakers will share insight on the latest trends and key issues in the education sector. GESS 2015 also hosts the 2nd annual GESS Education Awards that recognise outstanding success for the suppliers and teaching professionals in the Middle East.
The UAE Ministry of Education supports GESS and plays a vital role in promoting the event within the local and regional industry.
GESS 2014 had a 33% increase in attendance from the previous year with 50% of visitors coming from outside the region.
