GTM Global in association with Department for International Trade & British Centres for Business Presents

Access over $182 Billion IoT Marketplace from Dubai!

The adoption of the 5G Hyperloop and the effects of COVID-19 are accelerating an already buoyant Smart-City / Ed-tech marketplace in the UAE.

For any UK business with technology solutions in infrastructure, transportation, telecommunications, energy management, financial services, big-data and education there’s never been a better time to grow your business from Dubai, the gateway to the UAE.

Join us at this FREE workshop to find out about the opportunities, incentives, and benefits of basing your business in Dubai and having access to the UAE. Get bespoke advice and guidance from regional Smart City and Ed-tech experts, economic development organisations, and critical in-country service providers covering legal, accounting, operational, HR and financial considerations.

These FREE workshops are for founders, C-suite executives, and senior managers of UK scale-ups in Smart City, IoT & EdTech looking to expand into the UAE in Q4 2020 and into 2021.

Delegates will benefit from having 1-2-1 bespoke sessions with mission critical in-country experts to help them assess, understand, and implement any planned expansion to the UAE, mitigating risk and increasing opportunity.

Meet the team

The format follows GTM’s classic workshop series approach, offering access to our team of experts through a series of designated 30-minute 1-2-1 online consultations. These will be conducted via Zoom breakout session over a three-hour period starting at 09:00 when we will zoom-in experts direct from the UAE to join our UK advisor network.

Following registration, the GTM team will be in touch to find out about your expansion plans and specific areas of interest so that we can reserve your dedicated 1-2-1 sessions. Places are naturally limited because of the 30-minute consultation format, so early registration is recommended.
