From its inception, Advanced Conferences & Meetings has been structured with a hand-picked team of staff who collectively bring extensive prior experience of commercial B2B events best practice, both internationally and more importantly, in MENA markets.

All of our events, whether in-house or third party, enjoy the benefits of a fully resourced project campaign. Our specialist team of producers, marketing and sales executives, operations managers and CRM staff ensure that our products are delivered to the highest commercial standards and that our primary value proposition of returning your conference investment with maximum productivity on-site and enhanced competitiveness and profitability post-event, is continually upheld.

Our shared goal is to be the knowledge transfer partners of choice for regional governments and industries by providing our growing business community with exclusive and tailored events that both anticipate and meet their strategic needs.
