A Royal Welcome
for Arab

After welcoming HRH The Duchess of Edinburgh to the Arab Women of the Year Awards in 2022, we are honoured to be welcomed into a classic royal location.
Symbolic of its importance and significance, the Arab Women’s Summit will be held at the iconic, prestigious Lancaster House in the heart of London.  Lancaster House is a royal palace and has hosted world leaders, Royal Family members, and some of the most well-known figures in modern times for historic meetings and events. In February, it will open its doors to Arab culture and witness ground-breaking conversations at the Arab Women’s Summit.


For ten years we have had one clear mission, to bring the UK and Arab world together to empower Arab women around the world. This year we are taking that mission one step further; we are delighted to be hosting the first annual Arab Women’s Summit in conjunction with the Arab Women of the Year Awards.

Join us in London,  from the 27-29th Feb 2024 with over 300 bright minds for this historic event, sparking connection and making a real difference. Through lively panels, one on one interviews, interactive experiences and cultural workshops, the full day event hosted by London Arabia will unlock new thinking and expand perspectives while also creating an intimate community of our Arab and British guests.


The  Arab Women’s Summit will convene a powerful collection of innovative and visionary voices on the frontlines of progress, who are rising to today’s unprecedented challenges to spark major movements, and recreate a new tomorrow. 

Register today to take part and make a difference!

Developing Community through Arts and Culture 

Art and culture have shaped societies throughout history, providing a means to creative expression and a way for individuals and communities to communicate. How does art, whether fine art or performance art, shape our cultures and how we connect with one another? How can we use art as a tool to stimulate connection between people from different backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives? Are there limits to this?
