WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017

From October 14 to 19, the world’s largest vocational education and skills excellence event will take place in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Festo, a global industry partner of WorldSkills since 1991, proudly sponsors the world’s largest, international skills competition where young people from across the globe compete to become the best of the best in their chosen skill.

Festo is the lead sponsor of Mechatronics Skills #4 and Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Skills #38 competitions, as well as Future Skills Water Technician. Festo is also product sponsor of Polymechanics and Industrial Control Skills competitions. We supply equipment and assist the competition organizers for those skills categories.

This year, over 1,300 young people will compete in more than 50 skills categories. While the competition calls for technical know-how, the participants also need to demonstrate flexibility, team spirit, adaptability, and improvisation skills - just as in real life.

In addition to the competition, the conference program will be the opportunity to exchange information and best practices on professional education among leaders in industry, government and education. New ideas and processes will inspire young people to dedicate themselves to technical and technological careers and towards to a better future.
