The QEII Conference Centre in London is to host a sequel to the recent Libya – The Future conference which it hosted at short notice last month.
With Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) hoping to announce the formation of a new government and the final capture of Sirte from Gaddafi diehard, Libya -The Future 2 will take place 14 November at the venue.
The focus again will be how British industry and businesses can do business with the new Libyan regime and get a piece of the rebuilding pie.
Guma El Gamaty, the UK Representative for the National Transitional Council (NTC), will give a keynote update on the rapidly changing Libyan political landscape and brief on the priorities of the reconstruction programme. He will also explain the best way forward for UK businesses to do business with Libya and the cultural considerations involved.
The second keynote speaker is Edward Oakden, MD of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Sectors Group who recently returned from a trade mission to Libya.
He will outline how UKTI can assist and support UK businesses entering or re-entering the Libyan market.
The third event in the series will be a two-day conference, workshop and exhibition showcasing international companies and will take place 13-14 February 2012.
QEIICC Commercial Director Sue Etherington tells CN: “The QEIICC is delighted to support the efforts to rebuild business with Libya and help create opportunities for British business in Libya. To be chosen as the venue for this programme of events demonstrates that The QEIICC is at the heart of British business needs, and demonstrates our commitment to making successful events happen.”
Etherington also tells CN she is hopeful the series organiser, E Confex, will also hold the February 2012 event at the QEIICC.
