The Sixteenth M&A Mid-Market Forum (MMF), which will be held in Dubai on March 3rd 2016, will be focusing on developments within regional and global markets. Bringing together leading companies of the region and world leading investment banks, the forum will provide a forward analysis of the main deal drivers that will translate into transactions likely to be seen in MENA in the foreseeable future.

This year's MMF forum, with leading banks from Central and Latin America, US, Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania will bring bespoke strategies to leading companies of the MENA region based on their geographical and sector interests.

Strategies for diverse sectors ranging from Healthcare, Energy, ICT, Education, Real Estate and many more will be considered with opportunities spanning across six continents through one-on-one meetings and extensive peer discussions.

This Forum will be hosted by Swicorp, in cooperation with M&A International, the world's largest organization of independent M&A consultancies and investment banking firms.
