Middle East Global Advisors (MEGA) is the gateway connectivity and intelligence platform to opportunities in the rapidly developing economic region that stretches all the way from Morocco in the West to Indonesia in the East – The Middle East North Africa South Asia (MENASA) connection. We pride ourselves for being at the heart of these diverse markets for over 25 years.


The genesis of Middle East Global Advisors (MEGA) goes back to 1993 in Dubai, when it was established as the premier platform for connecting professionals with topical insight and intelligence across many industries and countries. At one point, MEGA organized more than 50 annual gatherings covering everything from banking and finance to energy, information technology and infrastructure among many others.The World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC), the Islamic banking industry’s flagship event, was conceived in Dubai 25 years ago with a small audience in the first few years to become the definitive industry forum attracting pioneers such as HRH Prince Mohammed Al Faisal & Shaikh Saleh Kamel the second year. WIBC moved to Bahrain in recognition of its global position as the hub of Islamic banking & finance. Thus this event continues to be registered on the calendar of industry leadership over the years.

MEGA continues to grow its portfolio of intelligence platforms to further extend our leadership position across the Banking, Insurance and Takaful, Islamic Capital Markets, Ethical Finance, and Islamic Project Finance segments. Each platform is developed over many years in order to further cement its number 1 position in its respective market.

In 1994 we founded the World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC), which at the time was one of the first conferences in the world to focus on this nascent industry. That first year we had 120 pioneering delegates and one sponsor. Today, more than a decade later and with more than 1,300 delegates from over 50 countries attending the conference each year, WIBC is an iconic brand recognised as the largest and most significant gathering of banking and finance leaders in this rapidly growing industry anywhere in the world.


Our Strategic Associates are world leaders in their respective fields and include key government finance and regulatory agencies such as the Central Bank of Bahrain, Dubai International Financial Centre, UK Trade & Investment, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and the Economic Development Board of Bahrain. These and our other strategic alliances with international thought leaders including Ernst & Young and global strategy advisory firm McKinsey & Company further strengthen MEGA’s brand leadership position in the Islamic finance industry worldwide.
