Very glad to attend GETEX

I was very glad to attend the Gulf Education and Training Exhibition in Dubai in April 2011 which provided us with the platform to raise our organization’s profile in the UAE. The response was extremely positive and we are thankful for this opportunity.

The best show for us this year was GETEX

The Gulf Education and Training Exhibition in Dubai was the best show for us this year. We are very satisfied with the way the fair was organized. All our 10 universities received a large number of student applications during the event. We look forward to the next edition of GETEX to meet new students as well as to touch base with some of the previous visitors to our pavilion.
