To be held at a prestigious new home, the event will see senior policy-makers, top education leaders and industry innovators from over 50 countries address education challenges, trends and opportunities to drive educational transformation in the region. BETT MEA will be an exclusive platform to share thought leadership, exchange experiences, network, collaborate, and hear from inspirational experts.
BETT MEA was conceptualized after extensive research with education stakeholders, government officials, educators and experts in the field. This year, the summit will focus on the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) that is taking the world by storm, with its tremendous potential to advance thought, education, innovation and economies. Covering everything from Artificial Intelligence to robotics and nanotechnology, 4IR has the potential to change the way the world thinks. The impact of this revolution on the education ecosystem will be explored during the summit – from traditional teaching methods to future tech ‘must-haves’ for the classroom, the UAE Strategy for 4IR, new solutions to global challenges, and working together to equip students and teachers to adapt to and thrive in this fast transforming world.
The two-day summit will bring together an impressive line-up of high-level speakers to deliver presentations, facilitate workshops and discussions, share innovations, case studies and best practices, and demonstrate solutions.
