Abu Dhabi 2013


Every two years, the International Purple Economy Forum sets its sails for a great cultural region. The first edition of the Forum was held from 11 to 13 October 2011 at Espace Cardin in Paris, under the patronage of UNESCO, the European Commission and the European Parliament.


The 2nd International Purple Economy Forum takes place in Abu Dhabi on December 9 with the theme “The cultural challenges of the globalized economy”.


The international sphere of influence of the emirate, combined with its desire to be one of the global economic and cultural drivers, make it an excellent destination for a major event the likes of the International Purple Economy Forum.

As a renowned crossroads of economics and culture, Abu Dhabi has many assets that could make it a symbol of a more humane form of globalization and of new growth built on sustainable, ethical and cultural foundations.
