The Hague, The Netherlands – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Dubai in particular is currently “The place to be” in the Middle East. The economy is booming. The exhibition industry is flourishing and expanding rapidly. In addition, Dubai has a clear, long-term vision of how it wants to strengthen its position as a global player and “exhibition hub” in that part of the world.
In light of this development, and coupled with a vote by 2007 forum participants, the 6th Annual International CEO Forum will move from its traditional European site to the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) January 23-25. The event will discuss global branding; private equity and mergers/acquisitions; the exhibition industry in the UAE and neighboring countries; the political situation in the Middle East; and other timely topics. The event also includes a “Dune Bashing” trip to a Desert Camp where the traditional Gala Reception and Dinner will be held.
Participation in the event is strictly controlled – registrants must have the CEO title or strategic responsibilities equivalent to a CEO. For more information on the program, who’s registered, and qualifying information, go to www.internationalceoforum.com/2008programme.asp
