Zaki Khoury, Business Manager, Microsoft Gulf, said: “Microsoft has made a long-term commitment to working with governments, educators, students and industry partners to expand the world of learning through technology to implement better ways to transform education for the benefit of students and teachers. GESS 2010 is the perfect platform to demonstrate our offerings for the education sector that enrich classroom instruction and enhance learning outcomes for students.


Sue Rothwell, Group Event Director, F&E commented: “With eLearning increasingly becoming part of mainstream education and transforming classroom interaction, it is only fitting that as the only regional show in the Middle East to address the entire spectrum of educational needs, Microsoft has chosen GESS to unveil its latest educational solutions. Visitors to the show will be able to see firsthand how the technology can be implemented to provide more effective learning and teaching tools.”


GESS 2010 will run from February 23 -25, 2010 in conjunction with the Global Education Forum at the Airport Expo Centre, Dubai.
