On the heels of its successful 10th anniversary flagship conference in Las Vegas, SALT announced that it will bring the global thought leadership forum to Abu Dhabi later this year in strategic partnership with Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the International Financial Centre of Abu Dhabi. SALT Abu Dhabi, taking place 9-11 December 2019 at the landmark Emirates Palace, will gather leading voices in global business together for three days of networking and collaboration on the world’s most important growth opportunities.
“The UAE has been a strategic launch-pad and vital East-West economic gateway. As an International Financial Centre in Abu Dhabi, ADGM plays a vital role in augmenting the country’s commitment to robust and sustainable economic growth locally and globally,” said H.E. Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, Minister of State (UAE) and Chairman of ADGM.
SALT Abu Dhabi will be the inaugural SALT event in the Middle East or Africa, with its presence reinforcing the undeniable economic importance and investment opportunities in the region. In addition to its flagship Las Vegas conference, SALT previously hosted successful conferences in Singapore and Tokyo.
“As we evaluated potential destinations for our next international SALT Conference, Abu Dhabi stood out as the ideal partner due to its collaborative cultural identity and bold economic vision for the future,” said SALT founder Anthony Scaramucci. “We believe in the coming years that ADGM and Abu Dhabi will continue to emerge as a leading global financial centre, and are excited to provide our global delegates a closer look at opportunities in the region.”
