Croatia: Zagreb will host 3rd Halal Business Forum 2-3 October 2023

From October 2nd to 3rd, 2023, the 3rd International Halal Business Forum will take place at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb.

Organized by the Center for Halal Quality Certification in Croatia, this forum will once again bring together key stakeholders in the global halal market, as well as current and potential participants from over 30 countries worldwide. This year’s primary focus is on recognizing the challenges faced by the global halal industry, along with the ever-evolving trends that demand rapid and innovative adaptation. The halal market is one of the fastest-growing sectors today, with an estimated value expected to reach 4.177.3 trillion US dollars by 2028. Given the continuous growth and development of the halal market, the Halal Business Forum serves as an excellent platform for qualified buyers, producers, financial institutions, non-governmental organizations, certification bodies, distributors, service providers, and others to network, share experiences, and enhance their businesses all in one place.

Over the course of two days, this year’s forum will host experts from various sectors of the halal industry in six panels. On the first day, participants will have the opportunity to explore the halal way of life, innovations in the halal food, cosmetics, clothing, as well as halal tourism, finance, and halal product certification. On the second day, a Croatian-Iranian Economic Forum will be held, directly connecting Croatian and Iranian entrepreneurs. Concurrently with this program, registered participants will engage in B2B meetings.

The forum provides an ideal platform for business leaders, non-profit organizations, government officials, hoteliers, travel agencies, local authorities, university professors, academic researchers, financial institutions, consumers, and business travelers to showcase the latest trends in the lucrative halal market and engage in productive discussions.

The Center for Halal Quality Certification invites you to participate in the 3rd Halal Business Forum, where you can recognize, establish, and strengthen your presence in the currently fastest-growing market in the world. Exchange experiences, forge new collaborations, and sample the products of our domestic exhibitors for whom the halal certification has contributed to the export of their products to markets worldwide.
