Land & Expand Your Smart Tech in the Middle East – from Dubai
With over 300 million mobile users across the MENA region, many moving to new 5G
networks, and multiple smart infrastructure projects like Expo 2020 restarting this autumn, there has never been a better time for your tech and digital brand to land and expand from Dubai!
Join us at this online, breakout-room workshop to connect with local infrastructure partners in sustainability, transport, education, health and smart cities.
You will learn about regional compliance and regulatory networks to set-up operations and be investor ready. Plus, you will get access to local investor networks to sustain and expand your regional footprint.
You will also get support from UK government and local trade bodies and select commercial and regulatory partners, increasing opportunities and mitigating risk.
