Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai and under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, MBRF organised the first edition of the Knowledge Conference 2014 in Dubai. The major knowledge event has taken on a bigger stature as the ‘Knowledge Summit’. The decision to expand the scope in terms of sessions and topics of discussion has been taken in view of the keen interest shown by leading regional and international figures to participate. It is the first event of its kind thoroughly focused on the localisation of the knowledge. It was organised to bring together international and regional knowledge influencers, experts and thought leaders on single platform. Knowledge plays a vital role in the revival and growth. Keeping this in mind, the summit targets to highlight the importance of knowledge and to promote the programs and ideas that helps to spread the awareness of knowledge around the world.
