Following on from the success of our inaugural RLI Connect MENA Deal-Making event in Dubai, October 2016 and Istanbul October 2017, RLI have decided to return to Dubai in October 2018 with its highly successful concept. RLI Connect MENA will take place once again at the Palazzo Versace Hotel, 7-8 October 2018 and will continue to connect the world of retail and leisure attracting shopping centre investors, mall developers and franchise partners from across the region eager to connect with both national and international brands to feed their potentially lucrative markets – markets that offer great opportunities for these brands to achieve levels of recognition and respect that may even exceed those that they enjoy in their home market.


Attend the event by completing our Retailer Registration Form. Once at the event, you will encounter a high intensity environment where people are in attendance to conduct business and network. With our online database, meeting system and assistance from the RLI Connect MENA Team, you will be there to conduct meetings in either a private space or a networking area. Food and drink will be provided on both days, with RLI staff on hand to assist you with any other queries you may have, allowing you to focus all your energy on the business at hand, deal-making.


Attend the event by securing your Meeting Room Package today. Once at the event you will be taken to your own private meeting room to conduct business and meet the people you have set-up meetings with via our online database, meeting system and assistance from the RLI Connect MENA team. If on a break from meetings, conduct networking sessions in the larger spaces and enjoy the food and drink provided. Tea and coffee will be provided in the meeting rooms so you do not have to miss a moment of crucial meeting time.


Attend the event by completing our Delegate Registration Form. Once at the event you can network and conduct pre-arranged meetings in the larger networking spaces. Your food and drink will be provided for you throughout the event so you can concentrate on making connections and moving deals towards completion. RLI staff will also be available throughout the event to assist you in any queries or meetings you may wish to try and organise at the event. 



“Jayne Rafter and her team pulled off yet another successful
RLI Connect that saw deal-making and the quality of attendees
at a new unprecedented level. Very impressive.”
