The inaugural Back2Business Oman was held on Wednesday 22nd January and proved to be the largest business networking event to occur in the Sultanate of Oman. Back2Business Oman was designed to develop new business relationships and consequently attracted over 450 guests to the Grand Hyatt Muscat.

The sold-out event was organised in collaboration with the Bank of Beirut and brought together business owners, entrepreneurs, thought-leaders and experts who are based in Oman as well as abroad.

Back2Business Oman was organised with the joint effort of representatives of some of the business councils in Oman; namely the British Business Forum, the Oman American Business Council, the European Business Persons Group and the Australian Business Group.

Maggie Jeans, who was one of the organising committee members for Back2Business Oman and is also the coordinator of the British Business Forum, said “The event was really a great success and exceeded our expectations in terms of turnout. There are a large number of business groups in Oman. The event provided opportunities to the people of different business groups to network with each other.

It was a great idea for business networking and it will become an annual event in Oman. We expect more and more business groups to be involved in the future, and this annual event will further benefit members of all groups in Oman”.

During the event Ramy Zambarakji, managing director of Bank of Beirut, Oman, said, “Back2Business provided an excellent opportunity for Bank of Beirut to present to existing and prospective clients our services in Oman, as well as to strengthen its current position as a key cash management player.

We were proud to be part of an event that brought together so many dynamic business professionals from a vast range of industry backgrounds and organisations”.

Galina Prokhina, corporate coordinator, OABC and member of Back2Business Oman organising committee, said, “I received a very positive feedback from OABC members on Back2Business Oman. In fact, members are asking for it to be organised twice a year. It was the first event in Oman that brought all major business groups together”.
