Unlocking Potential in the Middle East: A Ti Conference

Last year Ti held a rather good event in Singapore on the theme of Emerging Markets. To follow on from that success Ti will be holding a two day event in Dubai on this theme to take place on the 4th and 5th June 2014.

The two day event promises to pack a lot in with sessions dedicated to some of the region’s most pressing and challenging topics. (Some of which will be covered by Ti’s upcoming Middle East and North Africa Transport & Logistics 2014 report).

Day 1 will begin with a look at the recent 2014 Agility Emerging Markets Index (which you can download for free here). Each year the Index, produced by Ti on behalf of Agility, offers a unique and invaluable observation of the logistical situation of emerging markets. You can expect the dedicated session to answer questions such as:

•    What countries will emerge as major logistics markets in the next five years?
•    Which countries are companies planning to expand into?
•    What trade lanes have the greatest potential for future growth?

Other sessions across Day 1 will be packed to the rafters with a wide variety of topics which will offer tremendous insight and prompt many a lively discussion over drinks in the evening. Day 1 sessions include ‘Where Next for the Middle East and Africa’ through to ‘The Middle East Supply Chain- Outsourcing and IT Developments’. Full details can be found in the programme here.

A diverse mix of thought-provoking industry themes will be the order of the day for Day 2. For example, a session on the rise of e-commerce in the Middle East (see my recent post ‘Who wants a piece of this $15 billion pie?’) will draw on the expertise of Ti’s very own Cathy Roberson who will offer insight which promises to be both valuable and diverse. (You can check out some of her opinions on a range of topics over at her blog Global Supply Chain Insights). The session later that day on healthcare logistics in the region is also likely to draw on the talents of Cathy as well as the Healthcare report Ti currently have in production (for more information on that please contact Leon Morris lmorris@transportintelligence.com who will be happy to keep you updated on its progress).

Day two will be completed with a discussion led by Ti’s CEO, John Manners-Bell on the subject of Supply Chain Risk and will also feature vigorous discussions regarding the Oil and Gas industries and the region’s emerging industries.
