Dubai has rapidly grown as a global hub for trade and commerce, transitioning from an economy dependent on oil to the creation of a knowledge-based economy that has been the turning point in the emirate’s march towards progress and prosperity. Owing to advanced and innovative talent, resources and infrastructure, Dubai today has become a world-class destination that is a melting pot of cultures and dynamic destination offerings.
This resilient growth also lies in the UAE’s visionary leadership, driven by ambitious plans for the future, revolving around sustainability and innovation as key engines of growth. While strategically-driven progress may not be unique to the region, it is Dubai’s twin-tracked approach of creating knowledge and skills within the city while attracting foreign investment and global expertise to spur socio-economic growth that reaches far beyond the borders of the emirate, cementing its impressive reputation on the global stage.
Firmly positioned as the fourth most visited, and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, Dubai is truly where the East meets West. Dubai is easily accessible by all major airlines, and the expanded services of Emirates Airline alone connect more than 150 destinations across six continents. In the wake of the global Covid-19 pandemic, Dubai led the way in the tourism and events recovery, sustaining its position thanks to a focus on prioritising safety and collaborating closely with the industry to reopen – and stay open. The city’s hosting of Expo 2020 Dubai, from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022, represented the first truly global mega-event in the wake of the pandemic and further enhanced the city’s reputation as a tourism and business destination.
The strategic geographic location comes with an enjoyable, moderate climate that promises blue skies and beach weather even during the winter months. The city’s thriving business community, its sparkling nightlife and its intriguing culture are all aspects that add to the global appeal of Dubai. With a culture well known for paying close attention to detail, your event will be catered for with care and professionalism.
The social and cultural calendar in Dubai is full of exciting events throughout the year. These events are a reflection of the diverse lifestyle that is so special in Dubai, from sports events such as racing’s Dubai World Cup, golf’s DP World Tour Championship and the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships, to the likes of Art Dubai, Dubai Food Festival and Eid in Dubai.
