The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council is pleased to invite you to register to attend the third Make it in the Emirates Forum, which will take place from 27-28 May 2024 at the Abu Dhabi Energy Center. 

The Make it in the Emirates Forum brings together the largest industrial companies and enablers from across the U.A.E. to share their procurement plans and how these plans translate into local manufacturing investment opportunities. These companies prioritize local suppliers and are looking to engage with top-ranked local and international businesses keen to invest in U.A.E.-based manufacturing and production. This approach presents unique opportunities for international investors and manufacturers to invest in establishing production facilities in the U.A.E., supported by great visibility into procurement contracts from the largest U.A.E. companies.

The Make it in the Emirates Forum launched in 2022 and has quickly become one of the region’s most prominent industrial platforms. The 2023 event resulted in procurement opportunities worth AED 120 billion [$32.67 billion], 30 innovative industrial projects, and 1400 products to be manufactured locally.  

The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) hosts this forum in conjunction with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). Participants and exhibitors include AD Ports Group, Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), ADQ, Aldar, EDGE, Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC), Etihad, Etisalat, Masdar, Mubadala, PureHealth, TAQA, Tawazun, and others.
