The UK’s biggest B2B event showcasing the trillion pound global Muslim lifestyle sector will take place in London for the second successive year.
MLE Connect 2017 will bring together business owners, brands, entrepreneurs and start-ups from across the world to learn, network and explore market opportunities.
The event will see industry experts host a series of seminars and panel discussions across a number of industries within the Muslim lifestyle sectors including halal food, modest fashion, marketing, media, branding, finance, and international trade.
The Muslim consumer lifestyle market is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world today growing 9.5% from previous years’ estimates to $1.8 trillion at 2014 and projected to reach $3 trillion by 2021 according to a recent report by Thomson Reuters & Dinar Standard.
The UK is seen as a key market globally with brands and businesses keen to connect with Muslims consumers as well as a strong community of entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Tahir Mirza, founder of the event, said: “MLE Connect is the UK’s only dedicated conference that connects brands and business owners across the growing Muslim lifestyle sectors. Our event also highlights the growing opportunities for mainstream brands to engage in this dynamic global economy”
“Our research shows us that businesses, big and small, want to expand and connect internationally. MLE Connect will provide them with the market intelligence and opportunities to connect with key industry players.”
“More importantly, the conference is open to anybody regardless of faith and will be a great way to network and develop new partnerships and generate business.”
