BDL Accelerate 2016
Banque du Liban (BDL) Accelerate 2016 is Lebanon’s 3rd annual international conference, and officially the biggest and most influential on the Mediterranean and in MENA. The event is organized by Banque du Liban – The Central Bank of Lebanon.
BDL Accelerate is the only innovation and startup conference in the world that is inclusive, because it’s free. We don’t charge our attendees, so that everyone, from all walks of life, can learn, engage, be inspired, and connect with industry experts, investors, like minded individuals and change makers from around the world.
A growing international event
Since 2014, BDL Accelerate has more than doubled in size year on year. Last year there were over 6,000 attendees from 51 countries around the world.
