Victorian Government EdTech Trade mission to UAE
Victoria’s international education strategy includes a goal to develop Victoria as an EdTech and e‑learning services hub. In support of this goal a group of 11 Victorian companies travelled to UAE between 26 – 28 February 2019 to take part in the first ever Victorian Government EdTech Trade mission to UAE, to join a targeted business matching program and to attend the Global Education Suppliers and Solutions (GESS) trade show and exhibition. The aim of the mission was to showcase Victoria innovative education technology solutions globally and relationship creation for individual delegate participants with key prospective customers.
The mission commenced with business meetings, in-market workshops and networking events to learn and deep dive into the local market opportunities, then focused on relationship building for future customers. The program concluded with three days at the Global Education Supplies and Solutions Exhibit and Conference (GESS) Dubai 2019. Mission delegates enjoyed the conference, exhibited at the Global Victoria stand and were introduced to the speakers and other leaders featured on the program.
