Take a look inside our very successful second edition of Education Investment Saudi

Absolutely phenomenal turnout at the second edition of Education Investment Saudi in Riyadh in 2023. We welcomed 400+ delegates for an exciting two days of interactive panel discussions, keynotes and presentations addressing every theme instrumental in driving the education sector forward.

The overwhelming response is a true testament to the magnanimous scope of opportunities in the private education sectors in Saudi, with key ministries, regulatory authorities, investors, business owners and practitioners leading the way forward, committed to meeting the ambitious goals outlined in Vision 2030. 


Education Investment Saudi is a business networking forum that brings together regulators, investors, education business owners, operators and solution providers to discuss ideas, strategies, technology and partnerships that can achieve the Kingdom's education outcomes.

The event will provide attendees with vital information on how they can do business, as well as create dialogue with key stakeholders who can help facilitate the establishment of new educational institutions in the Kingdom. Explore commercial opportunities, make new connections and discover how you can accelerate the achievement of the Kingdom's educational goals, aligned to Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030. The Forum features a dynamic agenda, interactive networking and a structured meeting schedule to ensure that you build valuable business relationships with key local stakeholders.

Key Statistics from our very successful second edition in 2023!

The Kingdom's education sector is estimated to grow at lightening speed with a rising demand for world-class private education institutions that will cater to more than 7.5 million students across all education tiers. With strong support from the government, the education sector in Saudi is poised for accelerated growth with an estimated budget of 192 billion SAR announced to boost the knowledge economy and bring Vision 2030 to fruition. Attracting key stakeholders and influential business leaders from renowned education organisations across the globe, the first edition of Education Investment Saudi was a resounding success in bringing together the private education community to kick-start important partnerships and lay a strong foundation for Saudi's education sector.
