This year’s edition paved the way for the 1st Education Leaders Networking Reception, where heads of universities discussed and engaged with leaders of K-12 schools for opportunities and potential collaborations moving forward. This exhibition, which will run until February 26, 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. 

Other interactive seminars include Changing Landscape of International Education; Use of Digital Audio Feedback; Online Schooling vs Traditional Schooling; How to Enroll in an Ivy League and Tier One University; UWC-High School at University; Preparing Youth for the Fourth Industrial Revolution; and Boarding Students Success in University.

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences & Exhibitions (IC&E), the organizer 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 program suits them well and which school would best help them unlock their potentials.”
