Having chosen the theme Education: Africa’s path to a sustainable future and with over a decade of successful EduWeek events under their belt, Spintelligent are proud to announce that they will continue to advance educational knowledge in Africa and have committed to promote education’s impact to achieving the UN’s 17 SDG’s and South Africa’s NDP when EduWeek returns to the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg on the 12th and 13th of July.
Originally pegged for the 4th and 5th July 2017, EduWeek has been moved to accommodate the huge growth that it has experienced and will leave Hall 5 at Gallagher to take up larger space in Gallagher’s prestigious Halls 2 & 3. This move of date and venue for EduWeek provides the best possible environment to launch new big features to the event and space for exhibitors and visitors to network and interface, which is what EduWeek is all about.
Event Director, Tanya Jackman says “We are pioneering a new breed of education events which addresses the broader role of education as well as the practical every day components. In turn this will provide more opportunities for businesses in education to be exposed to new verticals of growth, including health and energy, whilst creating greater exposure in core sectors such as science & technology.”
EduWeek, a firm supporter of the United Nation’s 17 SDG’s and South Africa’s NDP’s, is a two-day exhibition and conference which will host over 180 local and international product & service providers, seven dedicated EduTheatre/conference tracks and 5,500 visitors.
Multiple segments of the sector will converge at EduWeek to discuss the advancement of education including Vocational & Higher Education, Early Childhood Development, Basic Education, Inclusive, Sports & Recreation, Technology, Health and Finance.
The exhibition has grown to host over ten major product areas including Fitness & Nutrition which is a new addition for the upcoming event:
- Maths & Science Equipment
- Educational Toys
- School Supplies
- Inclusive Education
- Services for Educational Institutions (Financial services, training services etc.)
- Safety & Security
Another highlight of the EduWeek calendar is the EduWeek Awards which take place on the evening of the 12th July. The EduWeek Awards recognise excellence across the African education ecosystem.
