Held on 5-6 December in Riyadh, the Education Investment Saudi event will bring together 300+ leaders from across the education landscape to discuss key themes and opportunities in the sector. Saudi consulting firm Emkan serves as a key partner.

Education Investment Saudi is a business networking forum that brings together regulators, investors, education business owners, operators and solution providers in Saudi Arabia to discuss ideas, strategies, technology and partnerships – aligned to the Kingdom’s educational goals within Vision 2030.

The two-day forum is supported by a line-up of knowledge partners, with Emkan among the five top band partners (Gold status). Emkan co-founder and managing partner Sara Zaini will meanwhile provide a presentation on the value of forging public-private educational partnerships.
