September 20-23, 2022: Ontario Edtech Export Business Mission to DIDAC India
Now in its 12th edition, DIDAC India (https://didacindia.com) is India’s only, and Asia’s largest, exhibition and conference for education resources and solutions.
DIDAC India has a 75% to 80% focus on educational products, software and solutions. The India Didactics Association organizes the trade show, which is supported by the British Education Suppliers Association, DIDACTA (Germany), Worlddidac Association, the United Nations, Government of the United Kingdom, Government of Victoria-Australia, Education Finland, British Education Suppliers Association and Edugrowth (National Edtech Association of Australia). DIDAC India sees 250 exhibitors from 19 countries and 15,000 education leaders. The trade show attracts international visitors from 34 countries and domestic visitors from all 28 Indian states and 4 union territories. This mission to India will support Ontario technology companies and service providers to gain access to the Indian edtech market, the #2 e-learning market after the U.S., which is poised to reach $30 billion in size in the next 10 years. The mission program will include: 1:1 export advice and consultation; turn-key exhibit space within the Ontario pavilion; a company listing on the SourceFromOntario website and in the DIDAC India trade show directory; access to conference sessions with more than 150 speakers; 30+ theme-oriented workshops; and curated B2B matchmaking program, site visits and networking opportunities in Bengaluru and a second Indian city.
