Gulf Educational Supplies Show-2008

Fairs & Exhibitionы, the Middle East's trade show pioneer and the name behind some of the region's most successful industry events including the Dubai Airshow, has launched a major new dual-pronged B2B initiative for the regional education sector - the Gulf Educational Supplies Show (GESS) and Global Education Forum (GEF) - to be staged in Dubai in January 22-24.

GESS, which will deliver an insight into educational institutions of the future, has already won a powerful local and international support lobby that has quickly positioned it as the Middle East's premier educational supplies and solutions event.

GESS is aimed at bringing international suppliers to the region to meet senior education sector decision-makers and explore new B2B opportunities. The event will feature every aspect of supply, learning resources, school design, build and solutions for the overall educational environment to develop the sector for the future.

Major UAE sector players, including Al Mazrouei and Edutech, have already confirmed GESS participation while other exhibitors are being contracted from Austria, China, India, Korea, Oman, Sweden, Turkey, the UK and the United States. Running alongside the exhibition, GEF will feature a comprehensive programme of seminars and workshops.

The conference and workshop programme has been designed with cross-sector appeal for the independent, private and public sectors. Delegates will include government and ministerial officials, school heads, teaching faculties, bursars, and educational specialists in areas such as special needs, sports and school counselling.

Sessions will span a wide-range of topics, including: Information Communication Technology, (White Boards, Data Loggers and Voting Systems); Science; English Language Training; International Computer Driving Licence; School Management Systems; New Developments in Teaching Techniques; Special Educational Needs; Professional Development and a unique feature on Procurement Advice.
