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

Taking place on 25 - 26 March 2020 in Dubai, the second edition will bring together 180+ senior HR professionals and business leaders to discuss the future of the people profession, network and share good practices.

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.
