About the Summit

London-based Summit Events Ltd has been running high-quality HR B2B networking events for the UK/European market for over 25 years. We introduced the same successful formula to Dubai in February 2019. The Summit is an exclusive ‘invitation-only’ event reserved for senior HR and L&D decision-makers looking to discover the latest solutions and network with like-minded peers.

How will you benefit?

The Summit is designed to be a relaxed and time-effective way to discover what’s new in the marketplace and source partners for upcoming projects.

  • Network and share best practice with peers

  • Business ‘speed dates’ with top solution providers

  • Take part in strategy sessions and round table discussions

  • Informal networking opportunities during coffee breaks, lunches and the evening cocktail reception

Who's attending?

25 HR solution providers including: top business schools, innovators in leadership and talent management, employee engagement & retention specialists, and HR systems & technology specialists.

60 senior HR professionals representing top corporations from the Middle East and Africa

  • Head of/Director of HR

  • Head of/Director of Talent, Learning & Development

  • Head of/Director of Organisational Development

What's the investment?

If you are a Director of HR, L&D, Organisational Development or equivalent, there is no charge to attend. In advance of the Summit, you will pre-select the sessions and vendors that are of interest and, based on your preferences, we’ll create your personalised schedule. If this applies to you, register here.

As a solutions provider, you can benefit from a set number of face-to-face meetings with engaged and qualified senior HR buyers. If you are interested in hearing more about our meeting packages and sponsorship opportunities, please register your interest and a member of the team will be in touch soon.
