Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) has announced that it will host the region’s leading finance conference at the Dubai Exhibition Centre during Expo 2020 Dubai.
The DIFC’s flagship event – a two-day conference under the theme The Future of Finance - will bring together global leaders and business commentators alongside international and local sector changemakers.
Exploring the latest financial sector trends, the event will uncover business growth opportunities offered within the fast growing MEASA region and reveal strategies to capitalise on the untapped economic opportunities presented within the region.
The event will also demonstrate the significant promise represented by Dubai and DIFC as a springboard for growth for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.
Echoing the Expo 2020 theme Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, the two-day conference will also focus on topics such as the Government of Dubai’s innovation agenda, the latest economic sector developments and DIFC’s vision of transforming the financial landscape.
The Future of Finance will also play host to economists, policy makers and regulatory representatives and representatives from global and regional banks, insurance sector leaders, asset and wealth management organisations, private equity firms and family offices.
It will also feature leading Islamic Finance experts, speakers from the philanthropic sector as well as FinTech entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Arif Amiri, CEO, DIFC Authority, said: “The flagship event during Expo 2020 is an important milestone as we continue on our journey to transform the future of finance throughout the MEASA region and globally.
“There is a robust link between innovation and growth. A key factor propelling economic development in the region is technological innovation which has created new value propositions, attracted new global investment and generated a diversification of sector opportunities. Therefore, it is no surprise that the region is significantly shaping financial innovation.”
