Under the Patronage of HH Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan and in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), Bett Middle East & Africa 2019 continued the conversation of education transformation.

Our 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.‚Äč

Our 2019 edition saw 50+ countries represented making this show an event that brings together the full ecosystem driving the nation’s vision to transform education.
