Dubai - November

November 26 - 27, 2022


Fair Organizer: Bill Turner

This will be the first of two Dubai Fairs in the 2022-23 academic year. It is organised by Bill and Alison Turner, who themselves have experience as school Principals in 5 schools across the region covering IB, British and American curricula. This fair is particularly useful for candidates seeking positions in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, though we always host schools from further afield too. Being an early fair in the season, this is a great chance to meet leadership candidates, as well as others who have committed early to seek new positions for the following year.

Where will the fair be hosted?

Universal American School in Festival City, Dubai.

When are candidate registrations open?

16 August 2022. Candidates wanting to attend should request an invitation from their senior Search Associate.
