The International Business Week (IBW) Middle East 2024 is set to unlock trillion-dollar expansion prospects throughout the Gulf region’s leading economies. Launching the new multi city format, IBW Middle East from 26 February – 1 March 2024, the visionary roadshow connects over 300 businesses, family holding companies, investors, influencers and policymakers in Doha, Riyadh and Dubai.

Tapping into Qatar’s World Cup 2022 legacy and Expo 2023 finale, IBW kicks off in Doha convening global tourism, hospitality and energy leaders. Delegates will gain insight into longterm diversification plans beyond liquefied natural gas production.

Travelling next to Riyadh, programming aligns with Saudi Arabia’s blueprint to transform into an innovation powerhouse by 2030. Attendees will connect with change-makers guiding the Kingdom’s economic revitalisation across future-focused sectors like renewables, technology, infrastructure and knowledge hubs.

The finale Innovation Summit in Dubai offers unmatched access to the emirate’s thriving hub of global business, trade and emerging technologies. Delegates will harness insights from regional unicorn startups and gain a foothold in this strategic market gateway.

Over five days, attendees will forge partnerships, showcase innovations and capitalise on cross-collaboration prospects fuelling over USD3 trillion in Middle East development initiatives. International Business delegates from North America, Middle East, Asia Pacific, China and other regions will be attending to unlock vital business relationships and opportunities at the nexus of these regional economic transformations.

International Director of The International Business Week (IBW) initiative Vineet C. Nambiar mentioned, ‘This is one of the biggest international business acceleration initiatives ever conceived for the booming Middle East and GCC economies; In the past we have hosted Summits, Launchpads and Mixers, this entire week is designed as an amalgamation of all these initiatives that aims to go even further than before.’
