Rescheduled MEADFA Conference shows increase in attendance
This year’s MEADFA Conference in Dubai concluded with a slight increase of 489 visitors attending. The rescheduled event was up from 484 visitors in November 2016.
The Opening Cocktail was sponsored by Dufry and held at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel on Sunday.
The Gala Dinner, hosted by Dubai Duty Free, was held at the Secret Garden at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. At the event guests could choose from a spectacular array of international cuisine as well as, of course, a tempting choice of local dishes. Live music was enjoyed by all.
The conference content was well received, with a number of business experts helping delegates better understand the forces that will shape the industry in the Middle East and Africa in 2018 and beyond.
The MEADFA President, Haitham Al Majali, said: “I would like to thank all those people and organizations that have helped this event to be such a success. We are immensely grateful to our sponsors; we could not have put on the conference without them. I am pleased to say we have renewed our association with TFWA to organise the conference for another two years. We look forward to welcoming old friends and new colleagues to our next event, of which details will be announced very shortly.”
