Furthering our commitment to championing better work and working lives in the region, we launched the CIPD Middle East People Conference and Awards in 2019 

The second edition will be hosted virtually and bring together 200+ senior HR professionals and business leaders to discuss the lessons learnt in the past year and key themes that have emerged as priorities for organisations in the region.


We were truly impressed by the quality of speakers and the issues discussed as well as the diverse mix of participating companies and their achievements in driving positive change in people management. We are looking forward to next year’s event already!

For years, our members and partners in the region have asked us bring our world-renowned conferences and awards to the Middle East – we believe the time is now. This event will serve as yet another platform for CIPD members and the wider HR community to come together and collectively support the agenda of empowering the people profession.
