The IoD has joined forces with the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), the UAE’s fastest growing Free Zone, for an event in Leeds.
James Bernard and Sanjeev Dutta of DMCC will join an expert panel chaired by the IoD’s Allie Renison at ‘Making Business Happen in Dubai Together’ on 7 March at the Marriott Leeds.
The free to attend event is aimed at UK companies that want to explore the economic and commercial opportunities in Dubai. Guests will hear top tips on launching a business in Dubai and the advantages of setting up in the Free Zone with guidance on the costs, technicalities and logistics involved.
Dubai’s unrivalled connectivity means that eight hours on a plane in any direction gives access to 65 per cent of global GDP and two-thirds of the world population. It is an ideal base for start-ups, SMEs and large enterprises targeting markets in Central Asia, Middle East, Africa, the Asian Subcontinent and Eastern Mediterranean.
James Bernard is director of business development at the DMCC Free Zone and Sanjeev Dutta is the organisation’s executive director, commodities.
Allie Renison is the IoD’s Head of Europe and Trade Policy and one of the UK’s most respected voices on Brexit. She makes recommendations and represents the voice of members on EU reform and provides a link between business and Government on increasing international trade.
The event starts at 5.30pm on 7 March at the Marriott Leeds.
