ABOUT THE WCAworld MIDDLE EAST REGIONAL CONFERENCE

21-24 February 2022


After an enforced gap of over two years, it is a great pleasure to announce that the first WCAworld conference of 2022 will be held in the dynamic, energetic and exciting city of Dubai, UAE. The event is open to members of all WCAworld networks and is expected to attract attendees from around the world.

This conference presents a fantastic opportunity to reinstate part of our businesses that we have all missed so much and is a cornerstone of the success of our network and our members – face-to-face meetings.

Hosted at the 5-star JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, over 500 members are expected to attend to re-establish valuable relationships, build new business, discover new partners and enjoy the business and social opportunities that the event offers.

Alongside WCAworld’s established One-on-One meeting formula, delegates will also enjoy a range of social networking events, from a sunset cocktail reception to a sumptuous gala dinner.

Of course, Covid-19 is yet to be eradicated and we will be taking several measures and precautions to help ensure you remain safe and that all local Covid protocols are fully met. Your health is our number one priority.

Please be aware that this event is space limited and we expect delegate places to sell out rapidly. To ensure that you do not miss out on this opportunity please book and pay using the link below to secure your place.

We cannot wait to see you all in Dubai in February and in the meantime if you have any questions regarding the conference please do not hesitate to contact your WCAworld regional representative.
