Coming to its tenth edition, the Middle East Family Office Investment Summit is a firm fixture in the calendar of the most prominent and influential families in the region – as well as those who want to do business with them.
Welcome to our exciting 10th edition of the Middle East Family Office Investment Summit. If you have joined us before, prepare for a celebratory event like no other we have held so far. And if this is your first time joining us, you’ve picked the best possible time to start coming to our regular networking events.
Alea Global Group is a family office with a long and prestigious history in the Middle East. As a family office ourselves, we are part of a global family office network, and our membership of this network means that decision-makers and family office members themselves attend our events, rather than simply their representatives. This means our events are of huge instrumental value when it comes to creating new business relationships, and many collaborations between family offices and service providers have sprung from one of our events.
The packed program for this event includes global topics that affect family offices and those who want to do business with them. We will hear from experts who are leaders in their field, we will gain insight into topics that directly affect all of our individual projects, and we will share our opinions with each other in a relaxed open forum. More than 100 single family offices from the region are scheduled to attend this summit, and there will be a 70:30 split of family offices to service providers, ensuring quality face-to-face time with the people who matter to your business.
And of course we have built our regular informal networking breaks into the programme, giving all delegates the opportunity to meet and talk with one another multiple times over the course of two days. With inspiration provided by the program, and a high quality and exclusive delegate list, it is during these breaks that some of the most exciting partnerships begin.
So join us for this very special celebration, and we look forward to hearing your resulting success stories in the near future.
