Organising Partner

The Arab Education Summit is a landmark event bringing together captains of industry and government leaders to ensure the world-class delivery of education, science and technology across the Middle East and North Africa.

The Summit is to be held under the patronage of the Jordanian Minister of Education H.E. Prof. Wajih Owais and with the support of the Jordanian government will ensure the participation of ministers, deputies and director generals from more than 15 countries.

The summit organisation by ArabBrains brings together the international expertise of The Brains Network with an outstanding track record in Africa and the Middle East, notably the recent Innovation Africa Summit that took place in Cape Town.

“It’s an excellent opportunity to meet all the stakeholders for the education market… I haven’t been to many conferences that are so well organised in terms of networking. I would certainly come again and recommend this conference to anybody else who is working in the education field.”
Martin Rist – Education Business Manager, Middle East & Africa, HP
