Dubai, May 9, 2013, the Middle East’s number one job site, has announced that it will host the 5th Virtual Education Fair for students and universities across the region, from May 13 to 16.

The online education fair, which sees Manchester Business School as an official sponsor and IDP as official language partner, provides a convenient platform from which students and educators can interact directly without the need for a physical forum.

The fair offers users an interactive environment modelled after a physical event, allowing students to interact live with universities and educational advisors. Students, parents and guidance counsellors are able to explore various universities, colleges and training providers, all from the convenience of their personal computers, without needing to travel or commute.

“Convenience is key to everyone in this day and age, and the Virtual Education Fairs provide students and leading educational institutes with the means to connect quickly, efficiently, and with minimum fuss. This direct method of contact has proved highly successful across the region as an ideal solution for students to explore as many possibilities as possible, and for educational facilities to reach the maximum number of potential candidates,” said Suhail Masri, vice president of sales,

“At, we want to empower the future workforce by giving them access to leading educational institutions via a highly accessible online virtual environment. The highly successful last Virtual Education Fair in 2012 saw over 15,000 visitors over only a five day period, and all were able to successfully interact on a real-time basis with top leading regional and international educational providors offering varying curricula and a broad spectrum of academic choice.”

“There are many thousands of students with diverse backgrounds, interests and aptitudes across the Middle East and North Africa interested in immediately furthering their education, and there is no better place to meet and communicate with them than the Virtual Education Fair. The pioneering online fair is very cost-effective for educators and also highly efficient, enabling educators to ensure that they can maximize their reach, choice, and ROI.”’s fair series is unique in that it allows educators to fully interact with prospective students through an immersive, interactive state-of-the-art virtual environment.
