REDmoney Events, in collaboration with the Government of Dubai, DIEDC and the Dubai Economic Council, will be hosting a closed door dialogue session entitled The Dubai Dialogue with regulators and market players.

The Dubai Dialogue is a high level, invite-only roundtable event comprising senior regulators and market leaders representing the Islamic finance industry in Dubai. A select group of international representatives will also be invited. This closed door meeting will focus exclusively on Dubai’s bid to become the hub of a world class Islamic economy.

To facilitate open and honest discussion no media will be invited to cover the event. A summary of discussions will however be made available to delegates attending the main forum on 16th September 2014. As the dialogue is an invite-only event no registration form is available.
