This year, the World Halal Forum is being held from 4th - 5th April, at KL Convention Centre, with the theme “Towards a Halal Economy: The Power of Values in Global Markets”.

KUALA LUMPUR - The World Halal Forum (WHF) is now a Not For Profit entity, coming into its own, working hand in hand with the International Halal Integrity Alliance (IHI Alliance) who is the global Halal authority. WHF is now an organisation "by the members for its members".

This change has been effected after extensive consultation with all Halal stakeholders. WHF will be institutionalised as an NGO taking on the role of a change agent, shifting the dynamics of the global Halal industry as it stands.

Who are World Halal Forum?

The World Halal Forum, now in its 6th year, is the world’s most sought after premier Halal industry event and has a proven track record as a crucial platform that plays a major role in determining the direction of the global Halal industry.

A message to Eco Muslim fans from the World Halal Forum Secretariat:
The World Halal Forum this year will unveil Halal 2.0 , the next step in turning the Halal industry into a globally competitive economy through the merging of Islamic Finance and the global Halal industry, estimated in the trillions of dollars worldwide. 
This is an exciting frontier for all businesses to venture into, an industry or economy that has withstood the downturn of economy and hence has been dubbed ‘recession proof’. The World Halal Forum this year is definitely not be missed, for delegates and media alike!

The event
Under the theme “Towards a Halal Economy: The Power of Values in Global Markets” the WHF 2011 will be highlighting thought-leaders from around the world in various sectors of the broader Halal market arena. Sessions for WHF 2011 will focus on:
  • The inevitable convergence of the Halal and Islamic Finance sectors, and the impact this will have on both sides over the coming decade.
  • Case studies examining how to position products that reflect Halal values in the mainstream marketplace.
  • Dealing with diversity: regional Halal-related trends and issues in a global marketplace.
  • Halal values in print, on TV and online. The role of conventional, digital and social media in shaping consumer perceptions as well as providing access to 1.7 billion potential customers.
  • How the rise of Halal-friendly travel is revolutionising the hospitality, tourism and MICE industries.
  • Progress reports and new directions for the World Halal Forum’s global network, including updates on WHF London and IHI Alliance projects.

Who will be there?
Over 900 delegates made up of business leaders, industry players, thought leaders, scholars and government officials are expected to attend the World Halal Forum which is part of the week-long ‘Halal Malaysia Week’ initiative which is a private-public sector collaboration between the World Halal Forum Secretariat (4-5 April 2011), MATRADE (International Halal Showcase or MIHAS, 6-9 April) and HDC (World Halal Research Summit, 6-7 April 2011).
