The second edition of the global investment platform Investopia, from March 2 to 3, 2023, will bring together more than 2,000 participants from more than 40 countries to Abu Dhabi.
Investors, government officials, thought leaders and entrepreneurs will gather at Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island to discuss topics including institutional asset allocation, AI, emerging markets, venture investing, digital assets, mobility, biotechnology and more.
In partnership with the premier global thought leadership forum SALT, the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development and Crypto.com, the event will focus on the theme “Envisioning Opportunities in Times of Change” and three sub-themes: Envisioning Opportunities in Today’s Economy, The Future of the Wealth of Nations, and Growth Opportunities in Times of Decarbonisation.
Abdulla Bin Touq Al Marri, Minister of Economy and Chairman of Investopia, said: “The second edition of the conference kicks off at a very important time globally, as we witness structural transformations in markets, global investment trends, and the rapid advancement of fourth industrial revolution technologies, all while moving towards the investments in a sustainable and low-carbon economy.
“We, in the UAE, have set an ambitious future vision of creating the optimal environment for conducting business. However, our focus extends beyond merely enhancing our investment attraction capabilities. Our focus is on achieving our aspirations of sustainable development through these investments. Investopia plays a vital role in the UAE's efforts to provide a platform for business leaders and government officials worldwide to engage in global discussions, establish partnerships, and integrate new developmental and technological trends in the world of business and economy, promoting sustainable solutions for a better future."
“We are grateful to Investopia for their partnership on this event, and are looking forward to bringing together investors, entrepreneurs and thought leaders from all over the world in Abu Dhabi for the first time since SALT’s first forum in the Mena region in 2019,” added Anthony Scaramucci, founder and chairman of SALT.
