Bonds Loans and Sukuk Middle East, 2020
The Bonds, Loans & Sukuk Middle East conference due to take place in Dubai, 24-25 March, 2020 will be Mizuho's 5th consecutive year of participation and Silver sponsorship. The conference enables Mizuho to profile its broad spectrum of products across a suite of debt and and investment banking solutions.
The conference is following a slightly different structure this year, to previous years and the organisers have combined the Bonds, Loans & Sukuk Conference (2 days), Project, ECA and Structured Finance (1 day) and the Oil, Gas & Petrochems Finance & Investment (1 day) conferences into The Middle East Finance and Investment Forum. Networking will take place for all conferences in one conference hall with an expected overall number of attendees to 1500+.
The conference is a one of largest Middle Eastern finance conferences in the region and brings together capital markets and structured finance professionals, with borrowers and investors throughout the Emerging Markets. GFC have established a very credible delegate base that enables for banks to meet multiple clients in a very short time frame.
