Show throws spotlight on Occupational & Industry, Professional Development & Continuing Education 

Dubai, April 13, 2017 – His Excellency Dr. Ahmad bin Abdullah Humaid Belhoul Al Falasi Minister of State for Higher Education, opened today (Thursday, April 13, 2017) the 29th edition of the Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX), the leading student recruitment platform in the Middle East and Asia, at the Sheikh Saeed Halls of the Dubai International Convention Center. The region's most trusted education, training and professional development event is being held under the patronage of the UAE Ministry of Education and organized by International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E). Running until April 15, 2017, the exhibition will focus on General, Undergraduate, Post Graduate, Occupational and Industry, Professional Development and Continuing Education and Training.  

GETEX 2017 is attended by education providers from around the world intending to achieve their student admission targets and enrolment quotas by recruiting students at the event. Admission officers and education counsellors are at hand to address student's concerns as well as offer career guidance on suitable programs. The show is expected to be attended by 30,000 leaners who are keen to decide on their further study, explore campuses and universities, and check out fees and scholarships opportunities. 

In his opening speech, His Excellency Dr. Ahmad bin Abdullah Humaid Belhoul Al Falasi commended GETEX for being one of the most important exhibitions for the education sector--which is currently witnessing rapid development and continuous growth. He also stressed on the significant role it plays in the continuing efforts to provide the labour sector with highly qualified and trained human resources, conforming to set international standards. In addition, Dr. Al Falasi stated that the event opens many potential opportunities and perspectives for students, which in turn, encourages them to embark on a journey towards professional success and reinforce their commitment to play a part in the move towards comprehensive development. 

Dr. Al Falasi added: “GETEX has always been successful, year after year, especially in its efforts to consolidate the UAE's leading position in both the regional and international education map, through the unending support of the country's wise leadership. We are confident that this year's edition will live up to its reputation of being a strategic platform for the education sector--presenting a wide spectrum of highly recognized academic institutions composed of national and international universities and training institutes. We are also positive that the event will play an effective role in supporting our diligent efforts to recruit and encourage students from all over the world so that they can benefit from the opportunities and advantages offered at the exhibition as it also strengthens the UAE's presence as a world class academic destination.    

The seminars at GETEX will provide students with enriching information that can help them in making informed decisions on their higher education Delivered by leading industry speakers and experts, the seminars are highly relevant in today's job market as well as for future opportunities. The Activity Zone, the newest feature at GETEX, is a platform to engage students in an out-of-the-classroom environment where students will be encouraged and inspired to pursue hobbies or learn new skills that can be turned into career choices.  

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, IC&E, said: “GETEX has continued to evolve and add new features to remain relevant to address the enquiries and concerns of the regional student fraternity. This year, we are hosting over 300 institutions from the region and beyond to offer over 2,000 programs and courses in various fields of academics, vocation and training. We are optimistic that our collaboration with some of the reputed names in education will be able to provide the right guidance and direction to students looking for more options in higher education.”
