British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates Announces FedEx Express as New Annual Sponsor

The British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates (BBG) is delighted to announce that FedEx Express is now an Annual Sponsor. With FedEx Express global presence and heightened growth focus on the UAE and GCC, this collaboration perfectly aligns to the strategy and network of the BBG and its commitment to British businesses and expats in the region.

With over 650 company members employing 1000s of British employees in Dubai and a large individual membership base, the BBG sees distribution as integral part of the business supply chain and understands the importance and reliance of a trusted and efficient provider.

British Business Group Chairman, John Martin St. Valery said: “FedEx Express has a long history of being a leader in the transportation and logistics industry, and is a global brand that supports British business in the UK, UAE and worldwide with job creation to macro economic development. We welcome this strategic collaboration and see the direct benefit to our members and stakeholders. Our membership is an ecosystem and attracts companies that require a range of business support at varying levels as part of their local market and international business development.’ FedEx Express will be synonymous with our ongoing events programme and knowledge sharing activities providing easy access to their sector experts on the ground at our events and content sharing on our extensive social media channels”.

FedEx Express, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa VP Sales, Matthew Davies added: “We are excited to strengthen our long standing relationship with British Business Group. Small and medium businesses are the backbone of the Middle East economy, and connecting them to our services and digital solutions will help them achieve their regional and global growth. We look forward to sharing our expertise and knowledge in navigating the dynamic business landscape, and build a more connected world together.”

Started in 1987, the BBG first welcomed sponsors 12 years ago with HSBC, Emirates, Motivate Media Group and Jumeirah Group as its ‘Founding Sponsors’. FedEx Express joins AHR Private Wealth, announced January of this year, as an Annual Partner.
