Uglobal Immigration Magazine hosted its Dubai conference on Feb. 10 and 11 before a packed audience comprised of more than 600 professionals who came to hear topical panels, meet investors and network. Dubai has emerged as the world’s fifth most important hub for high net worth individuals. It is also a magnet for an estimated 8,600 foreign multimillionaires. 

The amount of millionaires within the MENA region is expected to rise by 500,000 in 2020, making it a prime market for the second passport, citizenship-by-investment and residency-by-investment industry.  

The Uglobal Immigration Expo was held at the J.W. Marriott Marquis hotel in Dubai’s Business Bay. More than 40 speakers helped draw professionals to the meeting rooms to hear about a variety of subjects that ranged from trends among Middle Eastern investors and European migration options to the U.S. EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program and best practices for citizenship-by-investment.  

Attendees included a prestigious lineup of migration agents, high net worth individuals, wealth managers, developers, immigration attorneys and global investment immigration service providers. There was also a bustling exhibitor hall, dozens of sponsors and business presentations. 

Attendees appreciated the expo’s educational panels and networking opportunities.  

Abteen Vaziri of Brevet Capital called the Dubai conference “a great event to provide a platform for many immigration programs from around the globe to present and exchange parameters. It gave investors perspectives on tailor-made immigration programs that would fit their families’ immigration needs.”  

Guest panelist James Elcocke-Harris, a citizenship-by-investment agent for the Vanuatu Information Centre, was also positive. 

“The organization was impeccable and the scale considerably larger than I had expected,” he said. “This is clearly a key event on the global investor migration calendar. I would commend anyone to attend in the future.”  


Julien Tetrault, a Canadian immigration agent with JTH Lawyers Inc., called the event “first class.” 


“The high level of speakers was such that I managed to make great connections with professionals of the industry and also with direct clients who were looking for immigration solutions for themselves or close ones,” Tetrault added. “I am coming back from the two-day conference in Dubai with more knowledge, more contacts and seeds for my business to flourish. I already look forward to the next events.”  


Jenny Doolan of Medousa Constuction Ltd. in Cyprus agreed. 

The event was well-organized, professional and ran seamlessly,” she said. “It was a fantastic business development full of networking opportunities by bringing together an array of leading experts in different roles from all over the globe. Key updates within the industry were delivered clearly — a must-attend event.”
