WFDSA World Congress 2023 | Have You Registered Yet?

Have You Registered Yet? Early Bird

is Closing….

It has been a busy month for our DSA as we ramp up our efforts to make this the most memorable World Congress yet! The month began with a fantastic visit to Dubai by the WFDSA. This site inspection included high level government meetings which ensured that Direct Selling was a real talking point across the entire GCC region. The entire team has been so energized and excited by the real welcome this industry is receiving across the region – the message is clear GCC is open for our industry!

Program – High Level Government Attendance

We are excited to be welcoming all the CEO council to the UAE in October and look forward to the CEO panel discussion on our core topic for the event, reimagine reinvent and redefine and what that really means. Further to the agenda we are also thrilled to announce that this years World Congress will be opened by His Excellency Helal Al Marri Director General of Dubai Economy and Tourism. His Excellency is excited to be a part of the event and welcoming Direct Selling to Dubai. As we delved further into the program it became apparent that so many were looking at expansion across the GCC region, so we have incorporated a government panel which will address both business expansion but also the operational side within the region. No program would be complete without key focus on artificial intelligence and digital transformation and our day two is solely focused on this.

Further program detail can be found below.

The World Congress 2023 WFDSA organizing committee visit Dubai

This week has been extraordinary for our Direct Selling Association (DSA) as we welcomed the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations (WFDSA) 2023 organizing committee to Dubai for a site inspection.

There were so many highlights for the team but one that really stood out was meeting His Royal Highness Sheikh Mohammed Saer Al Qassimi, a true visionary and testament to how open the United Arab Emirates is to the Direct Selling industry, to business growth and to expanding the industry into the region.

High Level Government Meetings

We hosted many further high level government meetings including meeting His Excellency Helal al Marri (Director General of Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism), His Excellency Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry (Director General Tourism Abu Dhabi), the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority team as well Iyad Rasbey (Vice President of Tourism for RAKTDA). These meetings allowed our DSA and the WFDSA to showcase the direct selling  industry and the opportunity it brings to the UAE region. The message we conveyed to them was met with incredible positivity and opened doors for real partnerships between our DSA and the various Emirates not just for the upcoming congress but for the future of the industry in this region.

Site Visits

The week wouldn’t be complete without many venue site visits including the Grand Hyatt which will play host to this year’s congress, as well as a fam trip to the beautiful Abu Dhabi.

A very busy week for the team but one that highlighted to all involved the opportunity and impact that the upcoming World Congress will have on the region and the industry.

A special thanks must go to Atlantis Dubai for hosting the team at the Atlantis the Palm and showcasing true Dubai hospitality.
