Walpole partners with The Retail Summit in Dubai
During 2018 Walpole led successful trade delegations to Madrid and New York, with an aim to create opportunities for British luxury in key international markets. For 2019, we are delighted to continue our international work with our annual US mission in November and a new partnership with The Retail Summit, which takes place from 13th to 14th February 2019 at The Atlantis in Dubai.
As well as the Summit, we will host a day of activities for the Walpole delegation in Dubai on 12th February, including events with the British Consul General and Trade Commissioner, and with Patrick Chalhoub from the Chalhoub Group, as we support members looking to develop their business in the Middle East.
Walpole is inviting 10 members to join this delegation, where they will attend The Retail Summit free of charge, and participate in activities with the Consul General and Chalhoub.

Please note, places are strictly limited.
