BCB’s September newsletter: Expo is here!

29 Sep, 2021

Good Morning

Expo 2020 Dubai opens tomorrow night!

With all of the challenges of the last two years, just getting to this point feels like a grand achievement. Over the course of the next 6 months you will be hearing lots more from us on Expo as the event unfolds, but based on a sneak preview visit to the site on Sunday, I’d say it’s going to be special.

Looking beyond Expo to the legacy, the BCB is proud to be a formal partner of the Scale2Dubai programme that’s just been launched to help startups & entrepreneurs in the UK to build their business in Dubai.

Whilst Expo is the main theme, we’re also shining a light on trade growth in the UAE, developments in education and a reminder of this season’s trade show calendar.

If you are coming for Expo, be sure to come and say hello.
