Following the recent announcement of the rescheduling of its annual Conference, the Middle East & Africa Duty Free Association is pleased to confirm the new dates and venue for the event. The MEADFA Conference will now be held in Dubai, at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, on 28-30 January 2018. The event was initially scheduled to take place in Beirut in November.
As a result of the current political uncertainty in the region, the Board of MEADFA has decided that the 2017 MEADFA Conference will not go ahead in Beirut as planned. The event will be rescheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2018, at a date and venue to be confirmed shortly. Delegate fees will be reimbursed in full to all registered delegates, unless they instruct MEADFA to retain their payment against participation at the conference in early 2018.
Despite tougher trading conditions across many parts of the Middle East and Africa, there was a strong turnout for the 2016 MEAFA Conference. Nearly 500 industry professionals met in Dubai for the event.
