About Our Events

Welcome to Forbes Middle East Events – the stage that matters to the biggest names in business.

The region’s C-suite is a busy bunch, so gathering industry leaders in one room can be a near impossibility. But when it happens, something magical occurs.

Throughout the year, Forbes Middle East hosts a series of timely summits that achieve exactly that. Whether championing sustainability or exploring the technologies of tomorrow, our events draw influential businesspeople through the doors of some of the region’s top venues to celebrate achievement and – most importantly – shape futures.

Reflecting the diversity of the region, our calendar of events covers a rich and eclectic mix of themes from healthcare and wellbeing to the Arab world’s leading businesswomen and incredible entrepreneurs under the age of 30.

Whatever theme, Forbes Middle East events are all about impact. When savvy entrepreneurs, company founders, and distinguished CEOs sit down face to face, they do what they do best: they problem-solve, strategize, and dream big. The result is not just talk, it is true inspiration, tangible action, and positive change.

For us, the mission is personal too. We see each summit as a beacon of our brand, making excellence non-negotiable on every level. From live gatherings to prestigious award ceremonies, we set the stage for showstopping events that raise the bar and ignite the discussions that matter.

Get ready to join the conversation and be part of the solution. Forbes Middle East is waiting for you.
