Meeting face-to-face and building closer relationships (and friendships) is a valuable tool in forwarding, which shouldn't be underestimated. Knowing who you are speaking to automatically builds confidence.

We are delighted to announce that our 6th Annual Assembly will be held from 26-28 October 2022 at the W Hotel Abu Dhabi - Yas Island.

Did you know one-third of the world's population live within a four-hour flight of Abu Dhabi?

The emirate's geographical location between the east and west makes it ideal for international meetings.

The W Hotel is going to be an exciting venue for our gathering. Directly linked to the Yas Marina Circuit, it is the only hotel built upon a Grand Prix Racetrack! It is also a gateway to theme parks, shopping malls, a golf course, the beach, and a marina.

The hotel is only 10 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport (which has more than 30 airlines flying to over 120 destinations) and 90 minutes from Dubai International Airport.

Our First Chance To Meet!

After such a challenging 2 years, it will be fantastic to see each other in person again. Our first evening together will be all about celebration! We will meet on Wednesday at 18:00 on the famous rooftop Wet Deck where we will enjoy dinner and drinks.

1-2-1 Meetings

Once the Registration Fee is paid, delegates are able to pre-arrange 1-2-1 meetings. As our meetings are all about networking, our online platform will help you manage your connections – a key feature is the ability to add notes so that you can engage with each other before, during and after our gathering.

Our system has thought of everything so our delegates will be fully prepared with all the necessary information including an easy to read schedule for mobile devices. See example. Additionally, as the system is ‘live’, you can book new meetings during the event if an existing one is unable to go ahead for any reason – maximising your time and ensuring that you get a chance to meet as many companies as possible.

Who is up for a BBQ Beach Party?!

On Thursday, after a busy day in the meeting room, we will have an exclusive BBQ Party at a stunning Beach Club, Lounge and Restaurant located at Yas Island with stunning waterfront view of the Arabian Gulf. Our delicious BBQ will include Beef Burgers, BBQ Chicken Wings, Grilled Shrimp, Kafta, Shish Tawook, Hot Dog (Chicken and Beef) and will be washed down with an open bar including whisky, vodka, rum, tequila, gin, wine, beer, selected cocktails, soft beverages and mocktails!

No Registration Deadline

Online registration does not close, but payment must be made before the start of the event. Bear in mind that most delegates will have a full diary of 1-2-1 meetings, so it's definitely better to register early and fill your schedule.
