NBF Knowledge Series 2019

In an increasingly volatile world, the NBF Knowledge series, now in its fourth year, seeks to equip business with the insights it needs to succeed. Themed “Thinking Ahead”, over 700 UAE business leaders and analysts attended the series of one-day networking sessions across Fujairah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

This year’s line-up of speakers from Refinitiv, Linklaters and Gartner provided expert coverage of the key issues weighing on the minds of business owners and shaping their businesses today, namely:

  • Regional and Global Macro Insights: Macroeconomic factors topped the agenda with discussions on how Brexit, the US FED policy, the European slowdown and China/EU trade agreements could potentially affect the Middle East.

  • China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative: With China’s ambitious plans to connect Asia with Africa and Europe via new land and maritime networks, a panel of experts delved into the vast business opportunities that this brings to the region.

  • Top Technology Trends: From Blockchain to Artificial Intelligence, a leading digital expert spoke about the top tech trends that are impacting business today.
