Following our highly successful inaugural RLI CONNECT MENA deal-making event in Dubai 2016 and the equally productive event RLI CONNECT ISTANBUL in Turkey last year. RLI CONNECT MENA this year returns to Dubai with a new twist; RETAILTAINMENT. RLI CONNECT MENA 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 registered you will be assigned a dedicated meeting planner to organise your schedule for the event. You will conduct meetings with developers in their private meeting rooms and with franchise partners in the Networking Lounge. Refreshments will be provided throughout the event and the team will be on hand to assist you in any way, allowing you to focus all your energy on the business at hand; deal-making.
