ABES2022 followed on from the first ABES held in 2019, which was widely held to have been a success. ABES2022 achieved even greater success attracting a total of around 800 registered delegates.
Gathering in the sumptuous Hilton London Metropole Hotel, on 2 November 2022, the Summit turned a spotlight on the growing potential for business collaboration in the innovative tech sectors that are reshaping the future economy.

The event took place in the presence of Arab ambassadors, high ranking diplomats of various countries, City investors and numerous leading business executives. The ABCC hosted nearly 40 leading speakers drawn from public and private sectors and from government who shared their insights and expertise with an audience of policy makers, senior executives, investors and traders from the Arab World and the UK.

The Summit had as its main guiding theme, “Shaping a Shared Vision”, which shaped the agenda for the five separate sessions and the overarching opening discussion on the prospective UK-GCC Free Trade Agreement. The Chamber was immensely heartened by the positive response that it received to the Summit which attracted extensive media coverage and widespread interest with delegates travelling from across the Arab world and all over the United Kingdom. Hundreds of the ABCC’s members were among the delegates.
