The first annual Bett Middle East Leadership Summit & Expo was held in 2016. We introduced this cutting-edge conference to bring together the leading decision makers and buyers within the education technology space from across the Middle East and beyond.
The Summit was a great networking opportunity and allowed the delegates to share their experiences and learn about the effective implementation of educational technology in the classroom. The Expo brought together education leaders, practitioners and industry experts from throughout the region and across the globe. Their presence was of great importance in sharing high-level knowledge and ideas to work towards a common goal of internationalising education practises and ultimately improving student outcome. The Expo addressed the latest trends, challenges and opportunities for education and discover the innovation to fuel their vision.
In 2019, the event featured 80 exhibitors, 85 expert speakers and over 65 hours of engaging, CPD-accredited sessions. In 2020, for its fifth edition, the show will take place 14-15 September 2020 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
Some exciting changes are coming in 2020! Our attendees and customers have given us valuable feedback on how we can improve both visitor and exhibitor experience and we now have a dedicated resource in market to strengthen relationships and build partnerships within the region.

2019 KEY THEMEOur theme for 2019 was: Building a successful change culture to meet the evolving needs of 21st-century citizens. Building a change culture was identified as the biggest challenge by education leaders in the MEA region and providing students with the skills they require for the unknown future of the labour market was a major determinant for success.
