Building on the success in Africa, ArabBrains was launched in 2012 to forge partnerships across the Middle East to improve and enhance education across the region. ArabBrains is at the heart of driving the agenda for governments to share their challenges, service providers to develop solutions and for industry stakeholders to explore new markets.

In 2012, ArabBrains created the MENA Innovation summitoffering presentations, panel discussions and round-table meetings from high level government and industry representatives, as well as over pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings. This innovative approach to private meetings has been well received by over 500 delegates at each event, benefitting from unique access to productive dialogue across stakeholder sectors.

MENA Innovation has successfully brought together an impressive number of ministers, officials, academic institutions and ICT leaders in Egypt, Jordan and Morocco.

The next edition of the MENA Innovation summit will take place in Oman, 15-17 September 2019.
