The conference will explore the advance of the regional private equity industry and its prospects for the year ahead, through a series of presentations, case study sessions and interactive workshops from the region’s leading private equity experts.
MEED Conferences, the organisers of the event, has confirmed that there has been “significant” numbers of confirmed attendees, but that there is still limited availability for those who wish to take advantage of the networking opportunities at one of the region’s most important Private Equity conferences.
The MEED Private Equity Conference 2008 will address some of the questions surrounding private equity such as the attitude of the region’s business owners and investors towards private equity, and how to accurately value companies to ensure the best return on investment. It has been estimated that $50bn could be raised and invested by private equity firms in the next few years.
Edmund O’Sullivan, Chairman, MEED Events and the host of the conference host, said:
“We are very excited about the discussions that will take place over the next few days. Private equity has never been so topical or contentious. The role of private versus public equity is high on the agenda and with world-class presentations from leading private equity practitioners – there will be much to debate. If you’re in Private Equity, then you should be at this event.”
A variety of industry leaders will be speaking at the event including Sameer al-Ansari, CEO of Dubai International Capital (DIC), one of the most prominent of UAE’s private equity houses and Naveed Ahmad, Head of Investment – Wealth Management, Dubai Islamic Bank. There will also be input from speakers specialising in the Indian, Turkish and Egyptian markets.
MEED is the acknowledged market-leader in key regional industry-focused events and conferences; delivering expert, up-to-date business intelligence, industry data and research findings.
