The World Islamic Banking Conference

More than 700 participants from 31 countries will attend the 13th World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC), which is being held under the patronage of HH Shaikh Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, at the Gulf International Convention Centre from 9 -11 December 2006.

Keynote speakers include HE Rasheed M. Al Maraj, the Governor of the Central Bank of Bahrain, and HE Sheikh Salem Abdul Aziz Al-Sabah, the Governor of the Central Bank of Kuwait, in the opening Plenary session that will focus on creating a framework for Islamic finance to thrive. In addition, internationally acclaimed management thinkers, Tom Peters and Gary Hamel, will address breakthrough strategies for innovation and customer service excellence as Islamic banks attempt to continue their exceptional growth in an increasingly competitive market.

2006 has again been an extraordinarily dynamic year for the global Islamic banking and finance industry with landmark deals, international expansion, the launch of major new institutions, and IPOs from significant players ensuring that executive leaders must commit to bold strategies to achieve further performance improvement.

WIBC 2006 delegates will engage in stimulating debates on these significant issues with a distinguished faculty of sixty five speakers and panelists, including leaders of international and regional institutions, through a mix of highly interactive plenary sessions, break-outs and private closed-door meetings.
