With the generous support of sponsors PowerSchool, Marcia Brenner Associates, and intellimedia, the fifth PSUG Middle East & Africa Conference was hosted by Dunecrest American School from March 3-5, 2022 on their school campus in Al Barari, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
45 school leaders, educators, and technical staff from 21 schools in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, Oman, Qatar, Rwanda, and India took part.
This three-day event, our first one in-person since 2019, was an excellent opportunity for participants to attend in-depth technical training, share resources, get questions answered, and network with counterparts at other schools. We had a variety of excellent sessions and topics to choose from as well as an all-star team of expert trainers: Roger Sprik, Greg Satterwhite, Romy Backus, Jason Springel, Carla Dancz, and Eric Schaitel. Remote presenters included Adam Larsen and Chris Walberg. PowerSchool COO Maulik Datanwala as well as International Account Executive Sam Eilert were also present to facilitate an interactive session on the PowerSchool roadmap and listen to customer experiences.
We are thankful to everyone who helped to make this event a success and look forward to our next conference in 2023 in Amman, Jordan!
