Introduction to Event

Perception and reality. It’s trendy these days to deride our industry as ”allergic to change”. When in fact, the future of publishing is indeed taking shape – and thanks in large part to this industry’s initiative. Let’s peer deeper into the crystal ball during our 10th WAN-IFRA Middle East Conference which will take place on 15 and 16 April in Dubai.

 

We are very honoured to announce that
Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State
will give the welcome speech during the official opening ceremony.
