With just over a week to go, the fintech world is counting down to the long awaited iFX EXPO in Dubai. The eagerly anticipated iFX EXPO will take place at the exclusive 5-star Grand Hyatt Hotel, Dubai from 19-20 May 2021 and is set to connect high-level executives in financial services and fintech from around the world. This will be a live event giving attendees the chance to get back to face-to-face networking in a well-organised and COVID-secure environment.
A History of Success
Heading to Dubai for the first time ever, the upcoming iFX EXPO follows 10+ years of successful global shows in Europe and Asia. Offering a bustling exhibition floor with top industry brands, high-profile speaker sessions from industry thought leaders and dazzling entertainment, it’s no wonder the events arranged by Ultimate Fintech have so far attracted 35,000+ global attendees and 1,500+ exhibitors.

All rules are subject to change depending on local guidelines. For travel it’s important to look at the requirements for tourists arriving in Dubai as well as travel restrictions from your country of departure.
Dubai’s sustained rise as a global financial centre makes it the perfect setting for this year’s iFX EXPO. Consistently recognised as the leading financial centre in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region, Dubai is an international finance centre with a vibrant business ecosystem of over 250,000 professionals working across more than 2,400 registered firms. The historical signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE also put Dubai in the spotlight from a financial perspective and has resulted in an open market for Israeli companies.
With the UAE topping the Middle East rankings for the way it handled the pandemic, Dubai also has instant appeal from a safety perspective although it’s important to continue following all the COVID guidelines laid out by law.
The cherry on the cake is the wonderment of Dubai itself. Sprung from the desert, this fascinating part of the world is home to magnificent malls, head-turning sports cars, beautiful sand dunes and exquisite architecture. The Burj Al Arab is a sight to behold, as is the Burj Khalifah which is the tallest building in the world at an impressive 828-metres high. Attending the EXPO means hopefully squeezing in a spot of sightseeing.
