About The Event
The biggest brands in the world have long recognized the Middle East as a shrewd investment and hub for growth, impacting their revenues and widening their audience. Setting up a base here means big business, and the leaders at the helm are tasked with understanding the nuanced markets and building relationships as strong as any international footing. Our Global Meets Local gala recognizes these executives as they head up the regional offices of the world’s biggest publicly-traded companies, as featured on the Forbes Global 2000 list.
2018 will be the sixth consecutive year that we have hosted this exclusive evening— one of the pillars of our events calendar. We will once again bring together some of the region’s most long-standing and well-recognized expat leaders, as well as newcomers and national heads of industry to celebrate the success of world-class organizations in the Middle East and commend their continued growth
