“Being a partner city of the BestCities Global Alliance has been invaluable for both Dubai as a destination and for Dubai Business Events as the city’s official convention bureau. As the leading alliance bringing together some of the top cities for business events, there is an unrivalled prestige that comes with being in this partnership, helping to further elevate Dubai’s credentials as a destination of choice for international meeting planners. The collaborative spirit at the heart of the alliance – and the willingness to share best practices and benchmarks – has without debt benefitted us. The alliance has also provided a platform to raise our collective professionalism and skills, ensuring we can offer best in class services to stakeholders and target audiences here in Dubai and around the world.”
