The annual Zero Nine charity exhibition (named after Fujairah’s area code) is back for its third edition. Hosted by H.H. Sheikha Shamseh Al Sharqi—daughter of H.H. Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, the ruler of Fujairah—the event will serve to celebrate and empower local Middle Eastern businesswomen via motivational talks and help local charities with exhibition sales. This year, Zero Nine will draw attention to an array of charities in the region, including organizations that help low-income families and provide rehabilitation for the disabled. The upcoming event will highlight diabetes and zero in on preventing the spread of the disease across the emirate. On the third and final day, Lebanese TV host and entrepreneur Joelle Mardinian will close the three-day charity event with a motivational talk exploring her personal journey to success.

Other influential speakers include musician Taif Al Hufaiti and Dubai-based artist Abeer Tahlak. Additionally, the exhibition will shine a light on the local talent offered throughout the emirate, alongside 45 regional designers from the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Morocco, and Iraq—including Leenaz, Alef Concept, and Al Abbar Designs.

Zero Nine will be open to ladies only until April 7th, and open to families on April 8th and 9th
