Meeting face-to-face and building closer relationships (and friendships) is a valuable tool in forwarding, which shouldn't be underestimated. Knowing who you are speaking to automatically builds confidence. See our photo albums.
We are delighted to announce that our 11th Annual Summit will be held from 27-29 November 2022 at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek..
Did you know one-third of the world's population live within a four-hour flight of Dubai?
The emirate's geographical location between the east and west makes it ideal for international meetings.
Our venue is located next to traditional souks such as the Gold & Spice markets, and is a few minutes away from the Burj Khalifa, shopping malls, and the Dubai Frame. All their newly renovated rooms boast a private balcony with stunning views of the Dubai Creek. Located right beside the Union Metro station, it offers convenient, direct access to the entire city.
Our First Chance To Meet!
After such a challenging 2 years, it will be fantastic to meet each other in person again. Our first evening together will be all about celebration! We will meet on Sunday at 18:45 for registration and badge collection. Then we will leave Hotel Reception at 19:00 and embark on an exclusive Dhow Dinner Cruise. Upon arrival, we will receive a welcome of cold towels, fresh dates, and Arabic coffee. We will then enjoy a two-hour cruise on a traditional wooden dhow with an international buffet dinner from the 5-star hotel catering team. Spouses who have paid their additional fee are welcome to join us.
Once the Registration Fee is paid, delegates are able to pre-arrange 1-2-1 meetings prior to arrival. As our meetings are all about networking, our online platform will help you manage your connections – a key feature is one-to-one messaging so that you can engage with each other before, during and after our gathering. You can also make notes against each 1-2-1 meeting. Our system has thought of everything so our delegates will be fully prepared with all the necessary information including an easy to read schedule for mobile devices. See example. Additionally, as the system is ‘live’ which means you can book new meetings during the event if an existing one is unable to go ahead for any reason – maximising your time and ensuring that you get a chance to meet as many companies as possible.

PCN recognizes the importance of meeting face to face and organizes the venues to allow for owners, executives and the new generation to meet in person, discuss business and build long lasting relationships, trust and friendships. The mixture of meetings, activities and learning opportunities such as the infovideos differentiate PCN from other networks. It offers a lot of learning opportunities.” Maria Misurka, VP & Managing Partner, SCACLI (Canada)
