World Chambers Congress registration opens
Doha, September 16, 2012
Qatar Chamber, host of eighth World Chambers Congress organised by International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the World Chambers Federation (WCF), has opened registrations to attend the event in Doha next year.
The congress will run from April 22 to 25, 2013 at the Qatar National Convention Center.
Chamber representatives and business in Qatar and worldwide are encouraged to register now at worldchamberscongress.com to receive a 20-40 per cent early bird discount, a statement said.
Being held in the Middle East for the first time, the congress will welcome chamber and business leaders from more than 100 countries to develop and strengthen partnerships, exchange best practice, and network with members.
Chamber leaders will also be joined by a peer from each of the world’s 48 least developed countries, as part of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts of Qatar Chamber.
“The 8th World Chambers Congress is not only an ideal occasion to develop new business opportunities with Qatar and the region’s leading companies, but also to promote worldwide trade and investment opportunities with delegates’ respective countries, regions and business communities,” said Remy Rowhani, ICC-Qatar and Qatar Chamber CEO.
“After attracting immense attention on sponsorship opportunities we hope that hundreds of regional businesses, interested parties and media will register to attend the event.”
Under the theme “Opportunities for All”, the unique platform will feature dynamic plenary sessions and interactive working sessions on topics at the heart of a chamber’s local and international agenda. These include SMEs and the world economy, education and unemployment, women in business, and youth entrepreneurship.
The World Chambers Competition, one of the most popular Congress sessions, will feature an additional fifth category.
The Congress will also feature the ICC Business World Trade Agenda Summit on April 22, 2013, which aims to make recommendations on business priorities for a 21st century agenda for world trade. – TradeArabia News Service
