S-GE Event

Dubai Free Zones - Gateway to Growth!

Have you ever thought of having a 100% ownership company in Dubai? If your answer is YES, you should think about Free Zone registration. The main advantage offered by a Free Zone company setup in the United Arab Emirates is that a Swiss company can own a 100% trade, services or production company, without the requirement of local participation.

Dubai Free Zones - Gateway to Growth!

Make sure to reserve Thursday, June 21, 2018, when Switzerland Global Enterprise together with DAFZA (Dubai Airport Freezone Authority) invites you to attend the Event: “Dubai Free Zones – Gateway to Growth” in Zurich. The event will provide you with a wealth of exciting information from both country experts and an executive of a Swiss SME, who will share their experience in the United Arab Emirates markets.

If you are you already active in the United Arab Emirates, in a Free Zone or with a distributor, if you are thinking of setting up and improving your business in the region – you will benefit from a life testimonial of the Swiss company Reichle & de Massari, who will talk about their experience in Dubai and M/HQ (UAE's leading multi-services platform), who will inform you about the opportunities and limitations of doing business in Dubai.

You can look forward to an exciting morning and benefit from the exchange with our experts. Learn more about your business opportunities in Dubai Free Zones and receive important information for your future business decisions. After the event you will have enough time to meet other members of the export community and network during lunch.

Our country specialists from the region and from Switzerland and DAFZA representatives will also be available to you for free-of-charge, and you may book individual consultation sessions in the afternoon. Don't miss this opportunity and book an appointment when registering for the event!

We look forward to an interesting morning with you.
