Experts can participate in pre-conference activities according to their availability.

They can share best practices, research findings, and competencies with stakeholders in the field of education.

Teachers and educators who register for conferences under category 01 can participate in those lecture series, and if they fulfill the necessary assessments, they can be qualified as global master trainers or master teachers in those fields.
