The event is being launched to help females with social networking-based e-businesses to market themselves in the UAE and abroad.
The Dubai Women Establishment (DWE) will team up with the Department of Economic Development (DED) to host a new platform for females involved in social networking-based e-commerce, the establishment announced on Thursday.
“Insta Hub – a platform for women e-traders” is being organised to help UAE and GCC females who own e-businesses market their products and services and reach a larger range of consumers in and out of the UAE, through the e-Traders licenses issued by DED to conduct business activities through social media.
The event – which will take place on March 19 and 20 – will feature workshops by DED experts and specialists, as well as talks by successful UAE e-business owners. The event will also include an exhibition to showcase a range of products from entrepreneurs across the UAE.
The Insta Hub event is part of a partnership agreed signed between DWE and the DED to register 36 e-trader licenses, free-of-charge, to UAE and GCC women who have established businesses on social networkin sites.
"We are delighted to partner with Dubai Women Establishment to bring together leading business women in the UAE, and create more opportunities for doing business on social networking sites,” said Omar Khalifa, Deputy CEO of the commercial compliance and consumer protection (CCCP) sector in DED.
"The Department of Economic Development is promoting further economic activity in Dubai by creating partnerships with government and private sectors,” he added. “Our partnership with Dubai Women Establishment will add value to traders across social media channels.”
