Henley & Partners, a world-renowned international citizenship and residence advisory firm, is all set to host the 17th annual Global Residence and Citizenship Conference from November 8-10 at the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel DIFC in Dubai, UAE.
This highly anticipated event is expected to attract more than 400 delegates from over 35 countries, making it the largest and most significant gathering in the world on private wealth and investment migration.
Year after year, this prestigious conference brings together an elite group of individuals, including presidents, prime ministers, senior government officials, renowned academics, private client advisors, and wealth management professionals. This event is also a must-attend for top-tier financial and business media, providing unparalleled networking opportunities and insights into the latest trends in global citizenship and investment migration.
The 2023 conference program is meticulously curated, featuring sophisticated and cutting-edge content that addresses the major developments currently shaping investment migration and geopolitics. Delegates will have the unique opportunity to engage with world-leading minds and explore the latest ideas centered around the themes of global citizenship and interconnectivity.
Dr. Christian H. Kalin, Group Chairman of Henley & Partners, emphasizes the timely relevance of this year’s conference. “In our increasingly fractured and polarized world, it has never been more crucial to connect across borders as global citizens. This conference is a call to action, encouraging us to embrace our shared humanity and recognize our responsibilities to the world as a whole, not just our local communities or countries. Through global learning and understanding, we aim to drive meaningful change on both small and large scales.”
The conference will feature an impressive lineup of key speakers, including H.E. Dr. Dritan Abazovic, Prime Minister of Montenegro; the Hon. Dickon Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada; the Hon. Mohamed Nasheed, former President and Speaker of the Parliament of the Maldives; and Hadi Badri, CEO of the Dubai Economic Development Corporation. Other notable speakers include Prof. Dr. Christian Joppke, Dr. Titus Gebel, Prof. Dr. Khalid Koser, Debbie Botha, and Dr. Parag Khanna, each offering their unique perspectives on the social, economic, political, and environmental trends shaping our world today.
A highlight of the conference will be the 2023 Global Citizen Award Dinner on November 9, hosted in collaboration with the Andan Foundation, a Swiss non-profit humanitarian organization. The gala event will honor a remarkable individual contributing to addressing global challenges affecting humanity today, with the laureate being announced at the event. Net proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Andan Foundation, supporting their mission to empower refugees through education, entrepreneurship, and employment.
