GESS Dubai is the largest event in the Middle East for education professionals as well as local and international education solutions providers.



BESA is pleased to once again be supporting GESS Dubai, which takes place on 14-16 November 2021. This event has been a great platform for countless companies to launch their products in the Middle East, as it offers an effective way to reach a targeted and international audience. GESS Dubai continues to receive support from the UAE Ministry of Education and is the only education exhibition and conference within the Middle East to have the presence of five Ministries of Education and other government bodies. This allows the event to have high level discussions that change the education sector in the region and provides the platform for delegations to network, have training and share knowledge.

Why exhibit at GESS Dubai?

  • 550+ exhibitors from 40 countries
  • 10,000 visitors from 87 countries (visitors include government officials and advisers, Headteachers, Heads of Departments and Directors, education professionals from countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan, India, China, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and many more).

Internationalisation Fund

Match-funded grants of between £1,000 and £9,000 will be available for future activity (subject to eligibility and availability). To secure a grant, you'll need to fund a proportion of your costs yourself. This varies according to where your business is based and will be either 40 or 50% of the total cost. The Fund is currently available throughout England except Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, which has its own similar scheme.

Who is eligible for it?

  • The company must be based in England
  • The company must be a small or medium sized enterprise (SME) with up to 250 employees
  • No more than 25% of the business is owned by an enterprise which is not a SME

The fund is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
