THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED

A lot of companies struggle in selecting the market which is best for them. Our experts will be able to give you insight and advice for six of the markets in the Middle East – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

In a region where British products are well regarded for quality, and English is widely accepted as the language of business, no wonder more and more companies are looking at the Middle East as potential new export markets.


Why should you consider the Middle East, and how do you get in on the action?

  • There is currently over 25,000 projects being developed at a value of £2.5trillion;
  • The UAE is a regional entry port to other Gulf markets, home to 5,000 British companies;
  • The region has a population of over 54 million people from 180 different countries;
  • A very high Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita and high disposable income;
  • A demand for high quality, innovative products and services across a wide range of sectors;
  • UAE is the UK's largest trading partner in the Middle East, ranked 13th in the top global markets.
