Najah University Expo is once again setting the bar as one of the largest higher education fairs in the MENA region, with an impressive 24,000 visitors at its 2022 Abu Dhabi and Dubai runs. Supported by the Ministry of Education in the UAE as a platform to help students prepare for their higher education journey, Najah’s resounding success has prompted the announcement of this year’s events, taking place from October 8 to 10, 2023 in Dubai and from October 29 to 31, 2023 in Abu Dhabi.
For the past 16 years, Najah has developed its reputation as the definitive destination for providing students with essential resources and insights on admissions, scholarship opportunities, studying abroad possibilities, alumni experiences, and more. This was evidenced by the extraordinary turnout for the Najah University Expo 2022, which saw 197% and 176% increases in attendance in Dubai and Abu Dhabi respectively. School visits also skyrocketed in 2022 with an increase of 470% for Najah Dubai and 607% for Najah Abu Dhabi – a clear indication of the event’s importance in the UAE education sector.
Of the 150+ exhibitors from 20 countries, an overwhelming 97% said they were satisfied with visitor numbers and 92% said that Najah is important for their business. It’s no surprise that a huge majority – 89% from Najah Abu Dhabi and 85% from Najah Dubai – are likely to return for the 2023 edition, firmly establishing this expo as a must-attend higher education event in the MENA region.
Najah’s 2022 exhibitor line-up included universities from the UAE, UK, Canada, USA, Germany, Spain, France, Hungary, Cyprus, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia among others. A packed itinerary of talks designed to explore the higher education experience in more detail was also held at the Success Hub, with over 60 seminar sessions held across both events.
Students and parents alike who attended Najah Abu Dhabi and Najah Dubai shared how the expo exceeded their expectations when it came to supporting their decision-making process in choosing the right university for their higher education.
