This Forum will be of particular interest to businesswomen who are working in the Middle East. The forum will be attended by trailblazing and influential women from across the UAE. Our intention is to include significant and inspiring women from all sectors and to partner with institutions and companies working on empowering women in business in the Middle East.

Participants can take advantage of this intimate and exclusive setting to network with other successful women in the region. The forum will include an executive lunch.

The number of attendees at the conference is strictly limited, with priority given to subscribing members of 85 Broads. As there is considerable interest for this event and spaces are filling up fast, we would appreciate that once you RSVP, you attend the event as we would have turned away someone else.
