After two hugely successful conferences, IBBC is delighted to announce that it will once again hold its Autumn Conference in Dubai, UAE on 25 November 2018.
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. We expect a high level delegation of Iraqi politicians to attend the conference, to be announced in the coming weeks.
This year’s Agenda will focus on the key issues of how Iraq can rebuild its towns and cities and develop its economy and evolving Infrastructure and utilities with an emphasis on water, expanding Oil & Gas production, improving the Regulatory Framework and financial systems and exploring the role of logistics in moving people and materials into and around the country.
The Conference will also feature the highly successful Roundtable Discussions in the second part of the day, where delegates can engage in dynamic and concentrated debates with high-level governmental figures on the country specific issues that matter most.
A pre-conference reception and networking event is planned for Saturday 24 November at the Address Dubai Marina, where delegates could enjoy the spectacular surroundings and view.
