"Facing the Fourth Industrial Revolution"
Join us for the “11th Annual Gulf Education Conference & Exhibition” on the 23rd and 24th of February 2020 at the University of Business and Technology in Jeddah (UBT) Saudi Arabia. Our key theme for the two days will be ‘Facing the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Opportunities and Challenges for Universities’. We are delighted that this year the Government of Saudi Arabia together with UBT are inviting 16,000 students (and their families) to attend and meet directly with international education institutions at our exciting exhibition arena. This is an unparalleled opportunity for institutions to talk directly with potential students from Saudi Arabia. Join us and meet directly with senior representatives from government ministries, over 500 Arab education and industry leaders and a great many young people who are making important decisions about their future direction in education.


  • Leaders from colleges, universities & ministries to provide a rich resource for development
  • Ministers from GCC and other countries will share their key issues and their solutions
  • This year's event will also have an exhibition comprising universities and other organisations
