Annual Gala Dinner 2024

We were thrilled to gather over 800 guests to our gala dinner at the Pavilion, Emirates Golf Club on Friday 19 April 2024.

This year, our theme was "Golden Jubilee", celebrating a remarkable milestone in the history of Franco-Emirati relations: 50 years of the French business community in the UAE, and symbolizes the strength and depth of our commercial ties, reflecting the shared commitment to excellence, progress, and prosperity.

This evening was not merely a commemoration but a testament to the enduring partnership between our nations, forged through decades of collaboration, innovation, and mutual respect.

Over the past half-century, France has played an integral role in shaping the economic landscape of the UAE, contributing expertise, innovation, and vision to diverse sectors from aerospace to luxury goods, from renewable energy to hospitality.

This celebration honors the countless individuals and companies who have dedicated themselves to nurturing this flourishing partnership. We were honored to welcome several distinguished VIPs including His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, H.E. Niemtchinow Nicolas, Ambassador of the French Republic to the United Arab Emirates, Nathalie Kennedy, Consul General of France in Dubai, and other esteemed French, international and Emirati representatives.

The CCI France UAE Business Awards 2024, sponsored by First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) were a great success and we would like to congratulate once again Circa Biotech and Veolia for their well-deserved wins.

We warmly thanks our Platinum Sponsor Club Med, Diamond Sponsor, Chalhoub Group, Gold Sponsors: GIG Gulf and Sanofi, and our Silver Sponsors: Biologique Recherche, DHL Global Forwarding and Engie for their valuable support!

We were also thrilled to display the "Make it Iconic" campaign, illustrated by a video message from our compatriot, astronaut Sophie Adenot, who proudly represents our nation on the global stage. This campaign aims to proactively enhance the attractiveness of France on economic, cultural, and touristic fronts, emphasizing French audacity, innovation, and expertise.
