The GCC’s largest Global Gold Convention will be held in Dubai on November 23, 2020 at Armani, Burj Khalifa, with a wider participation of gold industry companies, mines, refiners, traders, authorities, government officials and regulators from across the world.

Hosted by IBMC International, Global Gold Convention 2020 (GGC 2020) is the first ‘hybrid’ industry-led event this year in Dubai in strict compliance with Covid- 19 protocols and guidelines. The Event is a testimony to the UAE economy’s perseverance and adaptability in the wake of the pandemic. The international event will see participation by ministers, diplomats, industry leaders from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the US across multiple verticals within the gold industry.

The key objective of the conference is to showcase the entire gamut of gold trade, investment and joint venture opportunities, import and export, logistics, refining, mining, jewellery manufacturing, bullion trade and retail opportunities around the globe as well as in the UAE. Following the landmark success of IBMC’s UAE-Africa Gold Convention 2019, the nation’s most sought after gold centric event, GGC 2020, returns to the UAE with ambitious plans to surpass 2019’s showing by widening the scope of participation and innovative programmes to make the UAE the hub of global gold trade.

The Global Gold Convention is part of IBMC’s 5 Year Growth Project 2022, started in 2017 to support the region’s non-oil sector diversification programmes
by fostering partnerships with businesses and government bodies from Africa, Asia, Europe and the US.

Sheikh Khalid Bin Ahmed Al Hamed, Chairman of IBMC UAE, said: “Encouraged by the overwhelming success of the 2019 convention, we have decided to widen the scope to global levels and to hold the Conference as the first major event from Dubai this year which will demonstrate the UAE economy’s resilience power and the gold industry’s potential to make the UAE the hub of global gold trade.”

IBMC will unveil innovative programmes such as Gold eMarketplace Trade Flow in its SME Economy Platform which will enable all classes of participants to do
investments and business transparently. The convention will help participants explore potential opportunities available globally in gold businesses and investments by connecting the UAE as a major hub.

Sajith Kumar PK, Managing Director and CEO of IBMC, added: “This year the Convention has opened up to global gold economies to explore innovative and secured business and investment opportunities from the UAE. In line with “IBMC-5 Year Growth Project 2022”, we have scheduled separate sessions for the newly launched IBMC projects US Digital & Stable Gold Currency, SME Economy e-Marketplace Platform for Secured Gold Business and selected Country Focused Industry Sessions from 33 anticipated participating countries including Israel.”

Industry participants will have the opportunity to network with key stakeholders across all verticals within the industry to address regulatory issues and expand business at home and beyond.
