Dubai is gearing up to welcome heads of state, business leaders and global investors to shape the future of business at the inaugural edition of the Dubai Business Forum.

The event will bring together key stakeholders from the government and private sectors across the globe to explore strategic economic partnerships, develop international networks and open new horizons for trade and investments.

It will take place at Madinat Jumeirah from November 1-2 under the theme ‘Shifting Economic Power: Dubai and the Future of Global Trade.’

"The Dubai Business Forum comes as part of our efforts to drive business and investment opportunities in the emirate and paves the way for companies to unlock the exciting opportunities created by Dubai’s ambitious economic agenda," said Mohammad Ali Rashed Lootah, President and CEO of Dubai Chambers.

Underlining Dubai’s growing position as a leading capital of the global economy, the event will bring together major players in sectors including technology, retail, finance, travel, hospitality, real estate and healthcare.

Previously known as the Global Business Forum, the event is also set to play an instrumental role in achieving the objectives of the Dubai Economic Agenda, D33, to double the size of Dubai's economy over the next decade and to consolidate its position among the top three cities.
