2014 Conference Review
Key attendance figures

The 2014 MEADFA conference attracted a record-breaking and highly attentive 600 delegates on the two day forum at Dubai’s Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. The +18% rise in attendance certainly did not disappoint, compared with the previous attendance number of 510 last year in Doha. Brand owners and suppliers represented 50% of total delegates, while a large contingent of retailers and landlords (25% of the total) indicates strong commitment from the key players. And with 55% of the audience from outside the Middle East and Africa, it is clear that interest in the region and the MEADFA Conference is still growing internationally.
