Exhibition Package

The 6th MENA Higher Education Leadership Forum (MENA-HELF) organized by the Center for Learning Innovations and Customized Knowledge Solutions (CLICKS) will be back in April 2024 in its 6 edition. 

We invite you to support an exclusive event that will bring together more than 300 higher education senior leaders and decision makers from across the globe during two and a half days to discuss and debate emerging trends impacting higher education, opportunities, barriers and practical challenges encountered as well as solutions and strategies universities must adopt to meet the rapidly disruptive environment in which it operates and embrace transformation. 

The upcoming Forum’s theme is focused on enabling meaningful and timely conversations about how the ‘New University’ should look like, what role it should play, how it should act and adapt and what it will take from universities to ensure they remain relevant and agile in time of uncertainty and dynamism.
