Have you heard the saying "everything is bigger in Dubai"? It is absolutely true - Dubai has the Burj Kalifha, which is the highest skyscraper in the world, the only shopping mall with an indoor sky, and it is the fastest growing city in the world. 

This year, the city of Dubai will host the biggest LaFutura event ever held in the history of LaFutura on November 20-21, 2017. For the very first time the future-focused conference will be held in the Middle East.

Learn more about the upcoming LaFutura conference here. Download a pamphlet of more information here.
