FBC Gala Dinner 2019 "Light, Enlightenment"

The French Business Council is pleased to announce that the Annual Gala Dinner 2019 will be held on Thursday, 2nd May 2019, in one of the most iconic venues in the Middle East: Dubai Opera.

Our Gala 2019 theme "Light, Enlightenment" is inspired by the French Pavilion named "Lumière, Lumières" and representing France at the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.

This theme highlights the influence of France internationally since several centuries in various fields such as arts, philosophy, culture, research, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to attend the largest and most prestigious annual event of our business community!

We look forward to share this evening with you.
