Bridging the gap between your business and the Middle East.

Any business committing to the region will have to spend money, but the question is how best to spend it, in which direction and at what return?

Whether using a trade show, operating a distribution relationship, coming to the region direct every couple of months or establishing a business in a FTZ or with a local partner, costs will be incurred. All routes mentioned have benefits, but our experience shows that managing those routes requires commitment, and 8 Point Advisory is able to provide that commitment with you at measurable rates, and with clear guidelines in place.

You’d be surprised how few companies actually know. There’s a lot of talk about “increasing business” or “finding a distributor”, but few have truly detailed objectives.

We bring an extremely strong track-record due in part to our Managing Partner’s experience dealing with thousands of international exhibitors at Trade Shows in the positions held as VP and MD for global exhibitions businesses.

No matter the sector, the common denominator is the need to have clear, measurable and realistic objectives. But these can only be based on experience, which comes from engaging with business people who know the markets, and speak a language a client can engage with successfully.

Our experience is established with a combined 50+ years in a region that’s packed full of opportunity, and our success comes from knowing the parameters, the culture and the contacts within which companies need to manage their presence. Whether choosing to establish a business in the region, work with distributors, retain sales agents or find partners, the key to successfully building revenues and sustainable profits in the region are relationships and trust.

The 8 Point Advisory team of 52-people (as of August 2017) continue to build trust by working at senior level within companies in the sectors. These people bring daily, practical experience to customers working with 8 Point Advisory.
