A cutting-edge business event showcasing Cyprus as an attractive business hub.

About

/ about

The Cyprus Diaspora Forum, founded by Paul Lambis, is a four-day B2B event that brings together Cypriot diaspora communities, prominent figures from Cyprus' public and private sectors, media, academia, and civic society with the goal of recognising and promoting the importance of Cyprus' diaspora while strengthening relations through entrepreneurship, innovation, philanthropy, cultural and social engagement.

In addition to prominent business professionals and talented Cypriot Diasporans who attend the event, the Cyprus Diaspora Forum attracts a high level of interest from HNWIs and foreign investors interested in the island's growth sectors and its unique investment opportunities.

The event has also piqued the interest of local and international communities interested in networking with Cypriots of the diaspora in their home countries, engaging with Cypriots who have relocated back to Cyprus, and hearing about the multiple advantages of Cyprus from foreign nationals who have either invested or established permanent roots on the island.

The Cyprus Diaspora Forum offers outstanding partnership opportunities, topics of discussion, an online exhibition, and the coveted CYDIA AWARDS, which are held on the final night of the Cyprus Diaspora Forum. This exciting initiative allows Cypriots of the diaspora to connect globally and showcase our wonderful island to the world.

Be inspired and empowered to think boldly, move confidently, and harness sage business advice and insight from global leaders.

Our aim is to connect Cypriots globally
and strengthen relations through entrepreneurship, innovation, philanthropy, cultural and social engagement.
