Washington, D.C. – The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) will co-administer the 2012 International Exhibition and Forum for Education (IEFE) February 13–17, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Organized by the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Education, the conference is a centerpiece for achieving the objectives of public education in establishing a knowledge-based society. The forum is expected to draw more than 25,000 attendees and up to 250 exhibitors.

The 2012 IEFE will allow education companies and organizations an excellent opportunity to explore and expand to a new market by exhibiting at this event.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has recently initiated a complete overhaul of its education system and has committed US$40 billion this year for education, including the latest educational technology, infrastructure, learning environments, and professional development. Significant demands exist at every level of the Saudi educational system. With the troubled global economy, companies are looking for new education markets, and Saudi Arabia is a great market to consider.
