Education Revolution a Top Priority for UAE Government, Giving Rise to Greater Public and Private Sector Involvement

Education 2020 intended to drive investment in education infrastructure and resources in the region 
UAE, January 5th, 2014 – The increased emphasis on Learning and Knowledge sharing in the UAE is creating a tremendous impact on how Education is delivered, marketed, administered and regulated, which in turn is spiking investment and encouraging discussion and networking within the UAE’s education fraternity.
Scheduled to take place from 29th to 31st January 2014 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) in the UAE capital, Education 2020 will make its debut as a focused, industry-driven trade show catering to the thriving business element of the region’s education market.
Anselm Godinho, Managing Director of the organising company, International Conferences and Exhibitions LLC, commented on the booming education landscape in the UAE, “Currently, all eyes are on the UAE and the Arab World, where the discussion and focus on education has never been so prioritized.  The growth and emphasis for quality in education is presenting remarkable business opportunities to suppliers of general education resources, education technology, management and administrative solutions and edcuation infrastructure providers from all over the world. Abu Dhabi particularly stands out on the globe as one of the most aggressive economies for education today, as it implements the most ambitious education upgradation plans to date which is costing the emirate billions of dollars.
The objective of Education 2020 is to allow buyers, sellers, specifiers, contractors, investors, regulators and educators to test, network, engage with and be exposed to the resources that will drive Education into the next generation and vice versa.” 
The event will also feature the Education 2020 Conference, that will address regionally-based teachers and academic leaders on a diverse range of topics including the Reformation of Education, the Development of 21st century skills for the delivery of education, Multimedia and Mobile learning, the Effective use of Technology in Classrooms, Content and Language Integrated Learning and other issues pertaining to today’s learning environment. Supported by TESOL Arabia, this Conference will be hands-on and bespoke for the teaching community, and will equip teachers with techniques to train furture generations.
Valued at US$1.9 billion/AED 7 billion, the private education sector in the UAE is one of the largest in the world, even exceeding that of China’s. With the country’s expatriate population constantly on an uprise, more local and international players are setting up base in UAE to tap into this growing market. Education 2020 will feature a comprehensive display of suppliers, vendors and solution providers, who play an active role in the region’s education landscape and represent top-quality products & services that will dictate furture learning environments. The event will attract visitors from across the Middle East who will be at Education 2020 to examine products, discuss issues critical to education delivery and explore the dynamic education landscape in the region.
