How do you choose your venues?

We host our training in modern, inspiring workspaces, as opposed to traditional hotels meeting rooms. Think GooglePlex or WeWork!

How do you choose your trainers?

We are committed to delivering engaging and insightful training that will help you deliver business results, which is why we select trainers based on their level of knowledge as well as their practical experience working with global brands. Our trainers are not academics but real-world experts, many of whom are well-known in their respective fields.

How do you create your course agendas?

We believe the Middle East is a region that strives to be on the cutting-edge of current global best practice, but has its own unique characteristics. Therefore, we combine the material of our global expert trainers with content based on research in the local market. Our first objective is always to equip our students with real-world tools and implementation plans that will help them achieve tangible results for their businesses.

Is there parking?

Yes, we only select venues with ample free parking.

How big are your class sizes?

We limit our class sizes to 15 participants – small enough for personalized attention but large enough to bring varied experiences into the room. We don’t allow more than 4 people from the same organisation into any one class to maintain a balanced agenda. If you wish to book a course for more than 4 people from your company, we recommend that you look at an in-house training option.

What is the format?

The format is approximately 60% tuition and 40% interactive hands-on practical exercises.

What do I need to bring?

For the majority of our courses, you’ll need to bring a laptop and your mobile phone to get full value from the course. For all of our courses, you’ll want to bring your enthusiasm to learn the latest digital marketing best practice.

How do I apply for a visa?

If you need a visa you should coordinate with the venue hotel as early as possible. The following countries have free visa-on-arrival travel to the UAE.


For other countries, visas can take several weeks, so register early and contact the hotel as soon as possible to avoid issues. Future Forward Group FZE accepts no liability for visa denials of processing delays.

What is your cancellation policy?

In the event that you need to cancel due a change in circumstances, we suggest you substitute for a colleague instead, there is no charge if you need to do this.

However, if this not a viable option, you will receive a refund of your registration fees, with the following conditions: (i) If you cancel your registration at least 42 days before the event, you are subject to an administration charge equivalent to 10% of the total amount of your fees (+ VAT if applicable). The full amount of your fee remains payable if your cancellation is 41 days or less before the event or if you fail to attend the event. If a cancellation changes the applicability of a multi registration discount, the lowest value registration will be cancelled first.
