Exciting Changes at Bett MEA

Bett MEA returns in September 2020 – and we have plenty in store to make the next show edition the best to date.

Here’s a little taster of what to expect at Bett MEA. 

Bett MEA’s new features

Our new home: Dubai

You spoke. We listened. We’re ecstatic to announce that for 2020 Bett MEA is coming to Dubai!

Our new venue is Festival Arena, Dubai. Placing us directly in the heart of the Middle East, this new venue allows us to expand and offer you more of the region’s leading education technology exhibition.

Dubai is amongst the GCC’s most dynamic education sectors. With the UAE’s wider $2bn push to enhance EdTech adoption across the city states’ various education sectors, we’re proud to position ourselves in the centre of this exciting activity.

Bett MEA now has more space to host a higher number of exhibitors, host more leaders, government figures, and guest speakers changing the face of education, and give you an overall better exhibition experience. 

An expanded exhibition

As mentioned above, we’re gearing up to provide a promotional platform for more exhibitors than at any time in our history in 2020.

We can offer you more opportunities to showcase your EdTech solutions, products, and/or services to our highly qualified audience. As the premier regional event of its kind, Bett MEA attracts the cream of the crop of education buyers, procurement offices, and government figures. 

Bett MEA attracts major organisations, not just from the Middle East, but Africa too. 

At previous events, we’ve welcomes the likes of Cairo University, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Education, University of Lagos, the American International School, the University of Bahrain, and the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Education to name just a few.

Take part to:

• Promote your education technology solutions at the region’s leading event
• Network and build relationships with investors, senior education leaders and innovators
• Enhance your brand and gain media exposure
• Generate new sales leads
• Acquire expert knowledge from education leaders from around the world

Six key themes

Helping us shape our programme is our six key themes.

These have been carefully chosen to help us bring the deepest insights into the world of EdTech and education technology. 

Our six big themes for 2020 are:

• Innovation
• Inclusivity
• Wellbeing
• Empowering teaching & learning
• Skills & continuing professional development
• Future tech & trends

The guest talks, keynotes, practical workshops, and seminars will be focussed on these important topics.

Expanded CPD opportunities

Ongoing career development is something all educators are invested in. Bett MEA is proud to facilitate this.

In 2020, we are opening 2 theatres to host CPD-accredited seminars. 

Our knowledge partner this year is KHDA, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority of Dubai, who will be aiding the direction of our must-see show content this year. 

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) is responsible for the growth and quality of private education in Dubai. The organisation supports schools, universities, parents, students, educators, investors and government partners to create a high-quality education sector focused on happiness and wellbeing.
