Now in its Eighth edition, the Middle East Family Office Investment Summit is a firm fixture in the calendar of the most prominent and influential families in the region – as well as those who want to do business with them.

We have had many requests to confirm that we will continue with our in-person Middle East Family Office Summit series, and we are grateful for the eagerness of our friends and colleagues within the global family office network.

While virtual events are of course possible, we have many years of experience and feedback from our delegates to tell us that the face-to-face element of our events is what adds the most value for our delegates. Our summits are a great place not only to learn, but also to network and to present opportunities to potential investors in a relaxed and intimate professional environment.

Alea Global Group’s Family Office Summits are unique in the Middle East, organised by a Middle East-based family office. Because we are a family office ourselves, the delegates and speakers at our events are themselves actual members of some of the most prominent family offices around the Middle East, and not simply representatives.

The programme for this latest edition has been created with the forward-facing and globally-focused business in mind. It will cover topics as diverse and essential as humanity and geopolitics, religion in business, healthcare, real estate, digital assets, space exploration, and corporate social responsibility.

We know how valuable this kind of opportunity can be, so our programme of panels, talks and round table discussions is broken up with strategic breaks for breakfast, lunch, coffee, dinner and cocktails, designed for meeting and mingling with key decision-makers from family offices, with our usual highly rewarding 70:30 split of family offices to service providers.
