Dubai to set out global pitch to associations in France

10th Sep, 2018

Associations based in France are being invited to learn about the opportunity to expand globally by setting up an office in Dubai, at a special event in Paris next month.

As part of its Going Global Series, Dubai Association Centre (DAC) will host the one-day event – titled ‘Is Your Association Ready for the Global Challenge’ – at the UAE Embassy on 19 October.

A joint initiative of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai Business Events, DAC was established in 2014 and has become a gateway for international associations that are looking to tap into the rapidly transforming city as well as the Middle East region.

In addition to explaining what DAC does and the services it offers, the workshop event in Paris will explore approaches to global expansion, the challenges that come along with this, and growing membership and services.

Associations that have already taken advantage of the opportunities to establish a presence in Dubai, including the International Association of Public Transport, will also share their experience.

The event comes amid strong growth in the number of associations registering with DAC, with a 38% increase in the first half of 2018 to a total of 58 licensed associations, including the Energy Institute, Arab Association of Urology, International Coach Federation, Gulf Flight Safety Association, and the International Live Events Association.

DAC last year hosted its inaugural Dubai Association Centre, which brought together local and international experts and focused on building a strengthened community and robust ecosystem for associations in the region.

In December, it will build on its momentum by hosting its first Association Leaders Getaway, offering a unique platform for networking, trials and discussions, all set amidst immersive experiences and scenic settings around the city.
