Chairwoman Message

Welcome to the Irish Business Network (IBN) website.

Formed in 2011 to bring together the Irish business community in the emirate, the IBN is an ideal point of contact for newcomers to Dubai as well as long-term residents.

The IBN committee are focused on organizing business themed events throughout the year, which provide a platform for the business community to make new contacts and to network.

Chief among our events are the popular IBN Business Breakfast meetings, which are free to members and which feature keynote speakers from a variety of industries and government officials. The annual September half-day seminar, which in 2019 attracted over 200 attendees and is also free to members, is one of the highlights of the year with respected speakers from Ireland and the Middle East attending.

The IBN also organize a series of sector meetings throughout the year, which focus on specific themes including the YBN (for members under 35), Construction, Hotel & Hospitality & Leadership.

For membership details of the IBN, please see this page for further information.

I look forward to seeing you at our next IBN event.
