The Mashrek and the Gulf States have been of great importance for Germany's foreign trade and politics, not only since the events of the Arab Spring. but also As a link between Asia, Africa and Europe, this region represents a valuable key to successful economic cooperation.

It is therefore necessary to be able to assess and successfully exploit legal, political and external risks and potentials. The analyzes, experience reports and discussions of the high-ranking regional representatives, experts and entrepreneurs present at the Forum will not only provide insights on the podium and in the workshops. In addition, B2B discussions provide the ideal framework for networking in the generous breaks with country-specific tables.

An exclusive Gala dinner at the German Bundestag, receptions and a supporting program round off this unique event.

As a special highlight for our members - who receive free participation for the entire event! - the EMA Annual General Meeting will be held this year.
