The Gulf is going through unprecedented change. Government efforts across the region to transform their economies and enable private sector growth are creating unique investment opportunities. These reforms have gained the attention of investors from around the world who are keen to learn more about how to unlock those opportunities and build relationships with senior government officials and meet potential partners.

The Gateway Gulf 2020 programme is shaped by three key themes:


As the state’s role in the economy shifts from operator to regulator and investor, this transformation is unleashing unprecedented opportunities for the private sector.


Emerging technologies are set to transform the Gulf – but only if the region can ensure the necessary regulation and infrastructure to capitalise on their potential.


As global alliances shift and multilateral institutions come under pressure, the Gulf aims to navigate these tensions and their impact upon potential investment opportunities.
