Thursday, 19th November 2020, The Address Dubai Marina, Dubai
Following discussions with members and taking into consideration current regulations in Dubai we are pleased to announce that the Annual Conference will go ahead in Dubai on Thursday 19th November at the Address Hotel.
With Dubai being a hub for local and international companies in the region operating in Iraq, the conference attracts suppliers, investors, producers and buyers from Iraq, the UK and the wider international business community. It also facilitates discussions with influential decision makers across all major market sectors. As well as providing many networking opportunities.
