Thank you for your participation in the 2016 edition of Scholastica. We hope to see you again in the next edition of the show.

Scholastica (incorporating Professional Training & Consultancy) will be held concurrently with ZITF 2017. Our plan is to make Scholastica a more exciting platform for the students who visit you, the exhibitor, at the exhibition for in-depth information on their future education, on the technologies and advice available. We want to encourage students of all ages to choose a direction in life which will develop their abilities and competence – using you, the exhibitor, as a source of inspiration and guidance.

Dedicated to providing insights into the reality of building a career, identifying individual  skill areas in need of further development and exposing participants to a wide range of career options to enable them to make informed career choices, this year’s Scholastica workshops will run concurrent to the exhibition. Below is the program of presentations and workshops lined up:

Any suggestions you, our valued exhibitor, could have to make this exhibition grow and develop, would be greatly welcomed. If you have ideas about the duration, frequency, content and impression of Scholastica, please contact us

This exhibition is Zimbabwe’s only international education and training expo with products and services covering every aspect of the sector.

The provision of two public days is made to enable scholars, parents and other non-trade visitors access to the exhibition. The exhibition is reserved for trade and business visitors only. However, limited access will be given to final year high school students, undergraduates and other interested visitors. Group visits are welcome but should be arranged before the start of the exhibition.


Its location in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, places the expo physically in the centre of the region. The venue is accommodated within the Zimbabwe International Exhibition centre – an extensive, permanent, purpose-built exhibition centre with a full-time specialist staff and plenty of room for expansion in future years. The Scholastica Exhibition will be held in Hall 3.
