GESS 2018 IN DUBAI WAS SUCCESS FOR THE FINNISH EDUCATION EXPORT COMPANIES

Global Educational Supplies & Solutions (GESS), DUBAI was the largest education event both in the UAE and also across the entire Middle East and it brought together all levels of educationalists together.

At the end of February in Dubai there was a booth for Finnish solutions and PINO Network was accompanied by Finnoschool and Coulu Systems. Moreover, Qridi and Code School Finland had a representative there on their behalf. Besides our northern companies, also three PINO team members was there to get relevant insight on the UAE education export market opportunities, to network and very importantly to showcase the overall northern offering.

The companies and the whole team were very satisfied for the results of the GESS 2018 event! They brought back to Finland sales leads and relevant co-operation and networking partners.

SEE YOU ALL AT THE NEXT BUSINESS CLINIC!
