Destined for Dubai
Over the first six months of 2022, Dubai Business Events (DBE), Dubai’s official convention bureau, collaborated with stakeholders across the emirate and the wider UAE to register 99 successful bid wins. These events are set to attract more than 77,000 delegates and yield more than 330,000 hotel room nights over the coming years. These wins underscore Dubai’s compelling business position, including its strong track record in hosting large-scale international events and as a platform for networking and knowledge-sharing.
“Inspired by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the city of the future and the world’s best place to live, work and invest in, business events will continue to be a priority, building on the Expo 2020 Dubai legacy and Dubai’s status as a destination where the world can come together,” said Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment.
Bidding activity through the first six months was driven by the collaborative approach taken by DBE in working with partners across the public and private sector, including government departments, local associations and societies, universities and other institutions, as well as business events stakeholders including venues, hotels, destination management companies and professional congress organizers.
