Dubai set to host major event


Dubai will host the world’s biggest gathering of entrepreneurs and business leaders.

The UAE’s first International Entrepreneurship Forum & Exhibition (IEFE) – Entrepreneurs in Dubai – will feature some of the biggest names in global business, including international property tycoon Donald Trump, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the man who founded the no-frills Easy Jet airline, The Body Shop initiator Dame Anita Roddick and Sir Chris Evans, Britain’s most colourful biotech entrepreneur. They head up an unrivalled line up of global business men and women who will address IEFE from May 22-25, at Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
IEFE is being held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, chairman of the board, Mohammed bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders, and organised in cooperation with IIR Middle East and Young Arab Leaders (YAL), an organisation aimed at transforming the Arab World and aiding its effective integration into the global economy by building its young leadership base.
“This will be the most influential gathering of international entrepreneurs ever seen in this region and will provide the audience with in-depth insights into the challenges facing start-up enterprises and advice on means of solving them and staying in business,” said Jessica Sutherland, GM, IIR Exhibitions and Conferences Middle East.
