Education expo opens today
LAHORE, Feb 4: The 10th annual Dawn Education Expo 2013 will open at 11am at the Expo Centre, Johar Town, on Tuesday (today). The exhibition provides students with a unique opportunity to interact with representatives from international and Pakistani colleges, universities and institutes of higher education.
This year, the event will bring together many leading universities from Pakistan as well as Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, North Cyprus, Turkey, UAE, the UK and USA.

Faculty, admission officers and career counsellors will interact with visiting students directly on a one-on-one basis. The event has been scheduled at a time when most participating institutions are enrolling students.
The expo will be open from 11am to 7pm on Feb 5 and 6 and entry to the event is free.
