About this event

Ben Ouattara has a long entrepreneurial history but many today know him as an official Expo 2020 Ambassador. He is of German/Ivorian descent and speaks fluent German, French, English, Spanish, and Dutch. He studied in Maastricht, the Netherland’s art academy, and earned the highest grade in 2006. For the next couple of years he worked with Markus Walter, one of the top three commercial and publicity motion picture directors in Germany, Fashiontrixx-a high-end fashion show and the German TV Channel Viva/MTV. 
 
When he moved to the UAE, he founded Beyond Films  to spark a movement of organic creative content in the Middle East. His video submission for the Expo 2020 gained the attention of major institutions. In November 2012 Ben Ouattara was chosen to be an ambassador for the expo2020 Dubai by the ruler of Dubai H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Under the leadership of Mr. Ouattara, Beyond Film has already developed an enviable portfolio of clients spanning retail to government, including but not limited to The Dubai Mall and the Road Transport Authority (RTA), Galeries Lafayette, Ubisoft, Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) and Sony.
