PINO Network at the GESS Dubai 27.2 - 1.3.2018

Global Educational Supplies & Solutions (GESS) is the largest education event both in the UAE and also across the entire Middle East. It’s a notable event that brings together all levels of educationalists together. The event will take place in Dubai 27.2. – 1.3.2018

There will be a booth for Finnish solutions and PINO Network will be accompanied by Finnoschool and Coulu Systems. Moreover, Qridi and Code School Finland will have a local representative there on their behalf. Besides our northern companies, also three PINO team members will be there to get relevant insight on the UAE education export market opportunities, to network and very importantly to showcase the overall northern offering.

In addition to the GESS event, our delegation will visit Sharjah, where Oulu University of Applied Sciences is facilitating construction field related AUSELABs digitalization workshop as a part of existing collaboration framework.

PINO Network was set up to support companies with education export and participation in events like this brings tangible benefits when reaching target markets. To support export we also host sparring clinics for our companies on selected topics. For instance, this spring we’ll be covering topics like international marketing and sales as well as legal issues.

At the GESS event there will also be the VET-Net in Gulf Area project by Luovi Vocational College, Tampere Adult Education Centre and Oulu Vocational College. Their main aim is to create networks, explore local opportunities while getting a better understanding on the local markets needs for Finnish innovations, education and labor.  The Finnish participants are there also to lay groundwork for the upcoming UAE delegation visit to Oulu and Syöte just before the big startup event Slush in November.
