DMCC Joins UNITE to Bolster International Trade Through Global Roadshow in 2022
Six global events to convene key decision makers, business leaders and senior government officials.
Dubai, UAE – 24th Jan 2022: UNITE - Unlocking New Investments, Trade and Economies, a global series of events that seeks to facilitate partnerships and expand international trade, has announced that the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) – the world’s flagship Free Zone and Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise – will join its upcoming global roadshow, with events planned in Dubai, Monaco, Zurich, São Paulo, New York and at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DMCC:
“DMCC has partnered with UNITE as it compliments our own international partnerships while also creating new avenues to promote trade to a global audience. Connecting with UHNWIs, family offices and international investors in our key target markets of Europe and the Americas will play a critical role in attracting new businesses and trade to Dubai, especially given our recent achievement of surpassing the 20,000 member company milestone this year. I look forward to working closely with Alastair and his team in the coming months.”
Created by The Private Investment Group, UNITE brings together over 150 of the leading private wealth groups from the regions it visits, along with senior government members and high profile leaders to connect and engage, build partnerships, expand trade between countries and to give insights on investments trends and emerging sectors. DMCC will share its trade and enterprise expertise throughout the roadshow, further fostering new global trade opportunities.
UNITE, through its unique relationships around the world, has brought together many high-level decision makers in private, intimate and highly exclusive settings, addressing some of the pitfalls of traditional conferences and trade shows. Through this approach, UNITE is able to create an environment where tangible and effective business takes place.
Alastair Lidel, Owner of the UNITE Brand and Founder and CEO of The Private Investment Group, said “It is such an honor to have the DMCC and H.E Ahmed Bin Sulayem joining us for 2022. The innovations, infrastructure and vision that DMCC has is why it has established its reputation as the best, and I could not be happier to support them and the emirate of Dubai in promoting all of the many exciting opportunities that it has.”
Mr Lidel went on to say: “We created the UNITE brand because as effective and efficient as the digital world is, I think we can all agree that meeting a person face to face will always be more effective. The vast majority of our guests are the ‘impossible to reach 1%’ and that creates an incredible opportunity for companies, governments and thought leaders to meet and create opportunities that would have been highly unlikely to have happened without UNITE. Over each two-day UNITE event, guests are by name invitation only, and those invited are invited not because of a title they may have, but because they have an authentic and active role in the investment, business and political global landscape.”
UNITE starts in Dubai on February 18th and 19th before it moves onto a four-day event in Monaco during the Monaco Formula One weekend. From here it is up into the Swiss Alps for five days in Davos during the World Economic Forum. Then heading over to New York in September and down to the incredible Sao Paulo in November.
UNITE is a global series of events which visit Dubai, Monaco, Zurich, New York, Sao Paulo and in Davos during the World Economic Forum. UNITE allows both public and private sector wealth to meet and engage with other governments, emerging companies and private wealth from around the world. With a private guest list of family offices, funds, U/HNWI, multinational companies, and fast growth businesses UNITE sets the bar in bringing together the pioneers and agents of change from the full global spectrum of business under one roof.
