ISF is specifically designed as an event for students to explore education out of the classroom where learning is promoted through engaging activities including sport, fashion and culinary skills and graphic arts among others.
Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E), the organizer of ISF & GETEX, said: “We hope to bring together the UAE’s multicultural student community, which is one of the most diverse societies in the world, under one platform where they can share common interests while learning and having fun as well. The inaugural Student Festival presents a unique opportunity for them to engage in their passions and interests in the field of art, design, fashion, food, digital technology and sports, among many others.”
