Next month, education worldwide will turn its eyes onto the Middle East. The free-to-attend Global Educational Supplies and Solutions (GESS) 2018 is set to take place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 27th February - 1st March, and will feature high-calibre speakers, collaborative sessions, and a wealth of exciting resources. What’s more, the organisers have also arranged for a special series of Innovate My School Speed Networking sessions, wherein delegates will meet a handpicked selection of international edu-innovators.


The 11th annual GESS event, featuring the theme of ‘Lifelong Inspiration’, will boast speakers (across several stages) such as #EdchatMENA founder Bashaer Kilani, BESA director general Caroline Wright, Council of British International Schools (COBIS) CEO Colin Bell, GEMS Wellington International School’s Sameera Hussain, worldwide iPad-education consultant Joe Moretti, and JESS Dubai head of digital learning and innovation Steve Bambury.



Aside from the 100+ speakers, GESS attendees will have the chance to take part in over 250 CPD-accredited conference sessions, as well as speak with 550 exhibiting companies - from 39 countries - to find out what might revolutionise their school next. And of course, there’s the Innovate My School element...


“This year, GESS Dubai will have an exciting feature in collaboration with Innovate My School,” said Matt Thompson, project director at GESS Dubai organisers Tarsus F&E LLC. “We will showcase innovative practices that provide teachers and administrators with an excellent look at a wide range of new products and solutions aimed at enhancing teaching and learning."



During GESS, delegates are encouraged to visit the Innovation Pods, an area highlighting a selection of the most leading-edge suppliers in education. What’s more, those attending can register in advance to take part in one of five exclusive Speed Networking sessions. These gatherings will cover areas such as school fitness, school information management systems (SIMS), educational videos, assessment, safeguarding, literacy, visitor admin, tutoring and much more.


Kate Lewis, commercial director at Innovate My School, said: “We are delighted to bring our popular Speed Networking format to GESS Dubai in February. GESS is the education event of the year in the region, and shines a beacon on innovative education companies from all over the globe.


“Speed Networking at conferences really is a win-win. Delegates get to experience a vast range of products and services in an engaging, timed setting; this supports them to achieve their objectives for attending the conference more effectively. Having completed 160 such events internationally, we know that Speed Networking is the ideal way for exhibitors to meet the right delegates, increasing their chances of converting them to valued customers. We look forward to working with the talented GESS team in 2018 and beyond.”



GESS Dubai 2018 will be held from 27th February – 1st March at Sheikh Saeed Halls, Dubai World Trade Centre. Visit www.innovatemyschool.com/gess-dubai-2018 to sign up for Speed Networking at the event.

  • Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?
    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.
