WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
Learn from the best
We bring together the individuals and businesses who not only know, but also shape the private education investment markets in MENA – from mega-networks, to fast-growing chains; from global influencers to home-grown innovators.
Develop new networks
We host the entire market in one place - including analysts, LPs, GPs, VCs, direct and online education delivery providers, edupreneurs, financiers, Ministries and regulators. We focus on new geographies that offer attractive expansion opportunities – with particular attention this year on Saudi Arabia, Oman, Egypt and Qatar.
Expand your business
Our sessions this year focus on new areas for investment in education – taking in teacher training institutes; home schooling networks and materials; higher education; affordable and low fee offerings.
Gain specialist knowledge
Sessions this year focus on specialist topics that maximise investments – looking at real estate options, how to pitch your business, how to develop a multi-brand platform and much more.
