The three-day event, to be held at the Art Rotana Hotel & Resort in the Amwaj Islands in Bahrain between 4th and 6th December, is expected to welcome over 1,300 delegates from more than 50 countries this year. 

Now established as the world’s largest gathering of Islamic banking and finance experts, the annual event has built a robust platform over the years that comprises senior bankers, institutional investors, asset managers, policy makers, academics, and other stakeholders from across the globe.  

Key topics that will be discussed at the 2017 conference will include regulatory developments, global trends in the use of sukuks, the regional economic outlook, and the impact of fintech and blockchain on Islamic finance.
