Platform 09 is set to return to the UAE, celebrating and showcasing local businesswomen in the Middle East.

Now in its seventh edition, the five-day event will once again be held in Fujairah under the patronage of Sheikha Shamseh bint Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, daughter of Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, the ruler of Fujairah.

The interactive event will take place from Tuesday, January 28 until Saturday, February 1, bringing together around 90 female Arab designers, entrepreneurs and artists, under this year’s theme of “Harmony”.

"We are women with full and exciting lives. We have careers and businesses, we have families, we travel, we explore and experience life. We live life to the fullest. We can find harmony in every aspect of our lives, if we choose to," says Sheikha Shamseh.

As well as exhibitions from the designers, there will be food trucks and live performances at the Forum – an interactive space at the heart of the event.

The event will be held in the Al Rumailah District, Fujairah and is free to attend. Further details can be found here.
