Our spirited Magebit team embarked on another exciting business adventure, this time to the enchanting deserts of Dubai. This trip took place from May 22-25, 2023 to attend the Seamless Middle East 2023 - Dubai.

We were happy to leave Riga once again and embark on a journey full of new encounters, knowledge sharing and horizon-broadening.

The Seamless Spectacle

​Seamless Middle East 2023 was not just another conference, but a global assembly of thought leaders and innovators. Celebrating its 23rd year, the event brought together more than 800 speakers, all pioneers in e-commerce, fintech an retail. The conference focused on key trends such as cashless societies, digital currencies, financial inclusion and more that are shaping the future of the industry.

Notable speakers included Moamen Abdelbaky, Supply Chain Director at International Food Industries, Gergana Abdulrahman, Co-founder and CEO of Wild Fabrik, and Mark Adams, GM, EMEA at BigCommerce.

This international event played a crucial role in fostering knowledge, cultivating partnerships and providing a platform for networking and potential collaborations.

The Dynamic Duo

We were represented at the conference by Anete Andruskevica and Karlis Stipnieks, two dedicated individuals whose work focuses on developing Magebit and forging new partnerships.

Their efforts laid the foundation for an exciting journey that was to unfold in the heart of Dubai.

Making Waves in Business and at Sea

We traveled there with a clear purpose - to actively participate in networking and raise awareness about Magebit and what we do. The first day in Dubai welcomed us warmly, providing a perfect setting to start our mission.

Armed with Magebit brochures and business cards, we set out to make our presence felt among the 800+ exhibitors. The conference was a melting pot of innovative minds from payments, fintech, banking, retail, e-commerce and digital marketing.

The second day was all about business! Networking filled the entire schedule and resulted in numerous new contacts. After a day full of fruitful conversations, Karlis and Anete decided to take a refreshing swim in the Persian Gulf.

Touching the Sky and Making Connections

On the 24th, the networking continued. Magebit brochures and business cards found their way into many hands, paving the way for future collaborations. That evening was all about taking it to the next level. Our duo, along with their new friend, visited the iconic Burj Khalifa, strolled through the Dubai Mall and watched the fascinating Dubai Fountain Show. The night was sealed with a cozy evening at the Irish Pub.

The Heat of Dubai and The Warmth of Success

One thing that couldn't leave unmentioned was the scorching Dubai weather, with temperatures up to 40°C. But it wasn't just the weather hot, so were the prospects for new customers and business partnerships were equally sizzling.

Karlis and Anete have made a big impact, with all the promotional material distributed and numerous LinkedIn accounts exchanged.

Welcome home

When our travelers boarded the plane back to Riga on the 25th, they carried with them not just tangible souvenirs, but also the invaluable treasure of new contacts, potential partnerships and an unforgettable experience.

This trip to Dubai was a testament to Magebit's relentless spirit of growth and discovery. We continue to forge ahead, creating ripples in the global e-commerce industry one conference and one connection at a time.
