ABANA’s annual dinner is the premiere New York City event for the international financial community active between the US and the MENA region. The program’s opening dinner on October 14 is an important occasion for our leadership–both men and women–to celebrate the valuable relationships between North America and the Middle East. For 2015, we have expanded the program to include a half-day conference, recognizing and convening some of the most prominent and successful female investors and heads of financial institutions in the Middle East and the US.
