Originally pegged for the 4th and 5th July 2017, EduWeek has been moved to accommodate the huge growth that it has experienced and will leave Hall 5 at Gallagher to take up larger space in Gallagher’s prestigious Halls 2 & 3. This move of date and venue for EduWeek provides the best possible environment to launch new big features to the event and space for exhibitors and visitors to network and interface, which is what EduWeek is all about.
EduWeek has also moved on from its partnership with SABC and is now partnering with Mindset Learn Channel.
The EduWeek African Trade Exchange takes place on the 11 July in Sandton and EduWeek takes place on 12 and 13 July from 09:30 – 18:00 and 09:30 – 17:30 respectively in Halls 2 & 3 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand.
Event Director, Tanya Jackman says “We are pioneering a new breed of education events which addresses the broader role of education as well as the practical every day components. In turn this will provide more opportunities for businesses in education to be exposed to new verticals of growth, including health and energy, whilst creating greater exposure in core sectors such as science & technology.”
EduWeek, a firm supporter of the United Nation’s 17 SDG’s and South Africa’s NDP’s, is a two-day exhibition and conference which will host over 180 local and international product & service providers, seven dedicated EduTheatre/conference tracks and 5,500 visitors.

Event director, Tanya Jackman says “As an attendee you will be exposed to a full itinerary of networking, knowledge sharing, practical seminars and hands-on interaction with breakthrough technologies & products in a truly innovative environment for an unbeatable experience”
Multiple segments of the sector will converge at EduWeek to discuss the advancement of education including Vocational & Higher Education, Early Childhood Development, Basic Education, Inclusive, Sports & Recreation, Technology, Health and Finance.
The exhibition has grown to host over 10 major product areas including Fitness & Nutrition which is a new addition for the upcoming event:
