EduWeek is coming to Cape Town and boy, do we think this is a great thing! We believe that Cape Town is the perfect venue to host an education conference and so, we expect EduWeek Western Cape to be a buzz!
EduWeek Western Cape – partnered with the Western Cape Education Department will be held at the CTICC in Cape Town on the 4-5 October 2017. The event will be an Exhibition and Conference, boasting 3 conferences and up to 70 exhibitors, and attracting +1500 visitors made up of education professionals, education buyers, and suppliers. The theme for the Cape Town launch is “Future Focused Education” and will elaborate on educational development within the Western Cape and beyond.
The 2017 edition of the event played host to representatives from Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Sudan, Namibia, South Africa and Rwanda and was proud to host Government representatives from eight of the nine Provinces this year. One such representative was the Minister of Education for the Western Cape, Ms. Debbie Shafer. She was invited to be a part of the Gauteng EduWeek event ahead of the exciting announcement that EduWeek will be making its way to the Western Cape in October 2017, bringing a unique Cape Town flavor and a focus on the future education landscape.
Minister Shafer was hugely impressed with EduWeek’s Gauteng event and had this to say when asked about the Western Cape show: “I am very pleased that EduWeek is coming to Cape Town. I would like to encourage people to come and participate and share their knowledge about education and how we can improve it, especially in Africa. I would love to see a theme of ‘Future Focused Education” as our goal is to equip our young people for active economic participation in the future in a rapidly changing world.”
Tanya Jackman, Event Director of EduWeek, had this to say about the upcoming event: “EduWeek is proud to announce the addition of EduWeek Cape Town. We believe that by bringing EduWeek to the Cape, we are offering the Western Cape education community the chance to network with leaders, strategic thinkers, and entrepreneurs from Africa and across the globe in their own province.”
