Dubai Set for Annual Gathering of Internal Audit Experts

The Dubai skyline will be a beacon for internal audit professionals this April as the emirate gears up to host the annual Regional Audit Conference. The event, organized by the UAE Internal Auditors Association (UAE-IAA), is expected to convene over 550 specialists and regional delegates for two days of intensive discussions and knowledge sharing.

Held under the theme "Digital Foundation, Endless Possibilities, " the conference will delve into the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital revolution in the auditing landscape. Artificial intelligence, data privacy, digitalization, cybersecurity, and robotics are all poised to be central topics, with leading figures in the field offering insights and guidance on navigating these transformative forces.

The conference reflects the UAE-IAA's commitment to fostering the highest standards of professionalism within the internal audit community. According to Abdulqader Obaid Ali, Chairman of UAE-IAA, "New and emerging technologies are impacting businesses, necessitating us to upgrade knowledge and skills to remain agile and on the cutting edge. " The event serves as a platform for attendees to exchange best practices, stay abreast of industry trends, and develop essential competencies in the digital age.

A keynote address by Naohiro Mouri, Chairman of the Institute of Internal Auditors Global board, is a much-anticipated highlight. Mouri's expertise will provide valuable perspectives on the global landscape of internal auditing, while other speakers will explore specific areas of concern, such as fraud detection and risk management in the digital era.

The conference isn't all work and no play. Dubai, a renowned tourist destination, offers a chance for attendees to unwind and network with colleagues in a vibrant and cosmopolitan setting. The conference program promises to integrate social events that provide opportunities to build relationships and foster a sense of community among internal audit professionals across the region.

The UAE-IAA's initiative in hosting this annual event underscores Dubai's position as a leading hub for commerce and finance in the Middle East. The conference not only serves the professional development needs of internal auditors but also positions Dubai as a thought leader in the ever-evolving field of digital auditing.
