"The UAE has been a strategic launch-pad and vital East-West economic gateway. 
As an International Financial Centre in Abu Dhabi, ADGM plays a vital role in 
augmenting the country's commitment to robust and sustainable economic growth 
locally and globally," said H.E. Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, Minister of State (UAE) 
and Chairman of ADGM. 

He added, "SALT Abu Dhabi will provide a valuable global platform for business 
leaders and investors to gain new insights and knowledge of the MENA region, 
and explore new business and investment potential that these countries offer. 
We welcome more like-minded partners to join us in bringing global thought 
leadership and new opportunities to Abu Dhabi and the region."

SALT Abu Dhabi will be the inaugural SALT event in the Middle East or Africa, 
with its presence reinforcing the undeniable economic importance and investment 
opportunities in the region. In addition to its flagship Las Vegas conference, 
SALT previously hosted successful conferences in Singapore and Tokyo. 

"As we evaluated potential destinations for our next international SALT 
Conference, Abu Dhabi stood out as the ideal partner due to its collaborative 
cultural identity and bold economic vision for the future," said SALT founder 
Anthony Scaramucci. "We believe in the coming years that ADGM and Abu Dhabi 
will continue to emerge as a leading global financial centre, and are excited 
to provide our global delegates a closer look at opportunities in the region."

SALT Abu Dhabi, like SALT Las Vegas, is an invitation-only event. Registration 
applications will open in late July, but prospective delegates can request an

stakeholders and leading investors in the UAE and Middle East and North Africa 
(MENA) region.

expand its programming and attendee base beyond traditional alternative 
investments. This year's Las Vegas conference, which was the most well-attended 
event in SALT's history, focused on diverse themes ranging from Hedge Funds, 
Private Equity and Real Estate to Digital Assets, Artificial Intelligence and 
Infrastructure. SALT Abu Dhabi will feature a similar mix of thought leadership 
content, networking and entertainment.
