“Thank you very much! It is really amazing, I mean the country needs such an investment forum, so people can be introduce to each other, increase the portfolio of investment, rather in Dubai and overseas and so on. It is amazing, congratulation for you. It’s really interesting. It is very excellent, I mean, getting people, investors together in discussing a lot of potential opportunities. And the city and overseas as well, I believe, we need a lot of this kind of investment forums. So, you know, people get together and understand the investment strategy and the way how to be develop within the region and also overseas. It amazing, what you have been done. It’s really the good thing!”

CEO TYPHON CAPITAL MANAGEMENT (US)

"I think the format is wonderful. And it is such a great job you and your team organizing everything. I have met a lot of people here, that I think, I wouldn’t have met anywhere else. Business owners, others CEO’s, I mean, people really from diverse areas of life, who spend most of their time in West, in Europe, in America. It’s really wonderful to meet middle easterners, feel the warmth of the culture, it’s really great meeting people who really understand commodities, background here they seem to really care to understand what we do in energy, space, in metal, in crypto currency even… The face-to-face contact becomes even more important. Actually at the Forum here we’ve met two guys, who I’ve talked recently via phone, there actually was a lot of business sense for us working together, but we’ve never really been connected. At the Forum you meet each other, you break bread, you drink tea, and we like, we really should being working together. We are meeting formally on Thursday to discuss that, so thanks for being the catalyst there."

“I think it’s fruitful, and I think that sometimes you might be sitting down with prospects that you haven’t thought about maybe going into, in terms of their sector or their niche. And it does give you some knowledge about sectors that you might think of going into in the future. The set up and the format when it comes to meetings it was done nicely. We have enough time to sit together comfortably in a good environment. It was the pleasure and we will be coming to all of your future events!”

CEO, Royal Vision Group (UAE)

“It’s our great pleasure to be here. It’s a completely different experience. I believe, it’s business oriented environment . If you have a very limited time, but also you need to find yourself casual talking about yourself about the others, try to find the benefits. These kind of the meetings are also beneficial in the sense that, sometimes, when you meet the people, you don’t know what the interest might be there, but then you figure it out during the meeting. That’s the beauty of it, and, on the other side, there is just enough time to do the introduction, to recognize the potential, and then, of course, if energy is there and potential is recognized, you agree for the follow-up meetings and take it from there. I believe, it is a beautiful and beneficial combination! Congratulations on how you design everything, it is very unique and beneficial event. We are very proud to be part of this event!”

“I’m very happy to be here today, and I am impressed with the quality of your programme. You guys organized a high-class quality event. I’m very impressed…

It is actually a working format. We had few meetings in the morning, I’ve already got few offers, and I’m meeting them after the event again. Thanks to you and your program…”

“It’s wonderful, it’s unique. What I have found, attending the forum here today and last time, that it’s very focused, very precise to the benefit of the attendees. And namely, in putting together investors with projects, looking and discussing very relevant topical issues, which affect
everyone business. Therefore, rather than sitting through numerous presentations on irrelevant topics, with your Forum, we have found, that it’s very tailored, very specific, very mindful of the fact that everyone’s very busy all the time. A really great enabler for people to come into face-to-face meetings, and face-to-face discussions with counterparts. It’s been a wonderful experience, one that has a really tangible effect on people attending. Great respect for all the work, and not only the work that you’ve put in, but also the strategy that you are following, the idea that you’re implementing – unique in itself…”

“It’s not only a good idea, but your added value to this is the quality of the people. Because a lot of people do b2b meetings, I mean, it happens in a lot of conferences, but here you can bring lot of investors, private offices, family offices, family businesses, international groups, and it’s a unique opportunity to talk to those people, whom you normally don’t have access to… It is amazing, because we see the quality of the attending people, we want to meet them, we want to discuss synergies with them. So this is the main point of the b2b meetings at your Forum…”
