Commercial License Workshop

A key milestone in any designer's career is being able to sell their products and services. To undertake such commercial activities in Dubai requires a designer to have the correct commercial registration. The Emirate has now introduced a series of new options that allow artists to establish businesses with ease. Led by an expert lawyer, this Tashkeel seminar will focus on the various options and associated costs as well as help participants navigate the often complicated process.

*This session shall be preceded by an introduction to Make Works UAE by Tashkeel, the online directory of manufacturers, fabricators and suppliers for the art and design community. Make Works UAE is supported by Dubai Culture.
