New thinking

In March, Private Equity International hosted the first Middle Eastern Private Equity Forum in Dubai. Over 400 senior participants joined in a wide-ranging discussion about how the asset class has – and will – evolve in the region. A top-level roster of both international and regional speakers ensured the debate was both lively and informed – as well as helping to map out the agenda for next year's meeting. Here's a few pictures from a memorable event.

The conference was sponsored by a group of regional and international firms including Abraaj Capital, Dubai International Capital, Istithmar, KPMG, Norton Rose and Terra Firma Capital Partners.
