The first global forum for the outsourcing industry will take place this year, bringing together for the first time leading outsourcing companies, suppliers, consultants and experts from around the world to discuss future business requirements and opportunities in global outsourcing.

The World Outsourcing Forum is a conference and networking based event designed for senior decision makers and industry influencers within global businesses. The forum will take place in Dubai during GITEX, the international technology week in late September, and will be hosted by Dubai Outsource Zone (DOZ), the world’s first ‘free zone’ dedicated to outsourcing which launched in June 2004.

James Freeman, Director of the World Outsourcing Forum said: “Outsourcing has become a defining global strategy for many high-profile multinational businesses, but until now the industry has lacked a focal point to support these user and vendors companies. What the World Outsourcing Forum will do is for the first time, enable leading outsourcers and outsourcing suppliers to share case studies and opinion on macro-level outsourcing issues ranging from global sourcing to international standards and corporate social responsibility within a collaborative, open environment.”

The conference schedule for the World Outsourcing Forum is currently being finalised, but is likely to debate industry standards and implementation, strategic growth through international partnerships, adaptability, suitability and operational strategies for turnaround, as well as presenting spotlight case studies from leading multinationals.

Dubai was selected as the first location for the inaugural World Outsourcing Forum due to its fast-growing reputation as an international hub for leading outsourcing organisations. Its unique location bridging East and West, close proximity to the major outsourcing locations within India, Russia, China and the Middle East, and its multi-lingual, technical and cultural expertise deliver an impressive set of specialist outsourcing credentials.

The World Outsourcing Forum will be organised by ITD Holdings, the leading international outsourcing events management company which hosts OutsourceWorld, the largest annual outsourcing conference and exhibition event in the USA, India and Europe.
