GETEX Open in Dubai for Visitors and Academics

Jameela bint Salem Al Muheiri, Minister of State for Public Education, inaugurated on Thursday the Global Education & Training Exhibition (GETEX), Middle East’s leading education exhibition and a student recruitment event.

Held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, the opening ceremony was attended by Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Director-General of Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), other dignitaries and heads of several universities and schools in UAE.

This exhibition, which will run until 26th February, serves as a platform for learning institutions to achieve enrolment quotas while giving students and parents a wide array of options in their pursuit of quality education.

It provides schools a chance to present themselves to a willing audience who are looking for education options. Additionally, students can leverage the expertise and services of career guidance counselors present at the event.

To offer students further insights on studying overseas, GETEX also hosted the following seminars: Get to know Bahrain School & Dorm, Introduction to US Boarding School, Applying to an Art and Design College in the USA and Study in Germany.

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences & Exhibitions (IC&E), the organiser of GETEX, said,

"The Middle East has one of the fast-growing student populations in the world, recording double-digit growth rate annually. We have to ensure that the younger generations have access to quality education to better prepare them for competitive job markets in the future. GETEX is the ideal platform to present learners options and opportunities so they can decide which educational programme suits them well and which school would best help them unlock their potentials."

The annual GETEX exhibition is aligned with the UAE’s education agenda of making quality education accessible to local and international students in the region while giving educational institutions an efficient and consistent wide-scale platform for their recruitment objectives.
