Family businesses are considered to be the bank-bone of Gulf economies, accounting for 80% of the companies in the region, 80% of the job opportunities and cover 60% of the non-oil national income. To respond to the challenges of this growing sector, the Specialist-ExiCon International Group and Arabian Mehad Excellence in collaboration with the Federation of GCC Chambers are proud to announce the launch of the 2nd edition of the Gulf Family Business Forum (GFBF). GFBF 2019 will take place on February 20th & 21st2019 in Sultana hall – Crowne Plaza Riyadh - RDC Hotel & Convention. Under the theme of “Stability, Endurance and Growth” GFBF will address the economic, legal, financial and governance challenges facing family businesses in the GCC; present and explore surveys and lessons learnt; share best practices; strengthen the ties between the Gulf family businesses; provide consultation opportunities with qualified experts and call for the establishment of a unified Gulf Center for Family Businesses. Focused thematic sessions, case studies on succession planning and the diversification of businesses, and an open discussion on the future of family businesses in the Gulf region await to be revealed and explored this October. ‘B2B consultancies’ and ‘Mixed Generation Counseling’ are also on the event’s menu to ensure the optimization of Gulf family businesses; while an interactive exhibition will provide in parallel ample opportunities for marketing and networking opportunities between key actors in the family business sector.
