Dubai comes together for a strong showing at IMEX America
Dubai Business Events (DBE), the city’s official convention bureau and part of the Department of Economy and Tourism, was joined at IMEX America by 18 co-exhibitors—including Emirates, Expo City Dubai, hotels, venues, airlines and DMCs—representing the diverse offerings of the city’s business events ecosystem to planners and international partners.
This collective effort showcased the global awareness and recognition of Dubai as a premier business events destination.
Dubai’s presence at IMEX America demonstrates the growth momentum of bid wins and recognition in recent months. The impressive roster of association events secured by Dubai recently includes the 2024 Aesthetic Society International Meeting, 2024 International Tug & Salvage, 2027 World Congress on Medical Informatics and ISAPS Olympiad World Congress 2027.
“Dubai’s winning proposition of world-class infrastructure, expertise across key sectors and a growing knowledge economy resonated with global decision-makers and meeting professionals at IMEX America,” said Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment. “This year’s successful participation is the result of the remarkable collaborative efforts of our partners and industry stakeholders. Indeed, collaboration and cooperation are integral to achieving the vision of the Dubai Economic Agenda (D33). Business events will continue to play a pivotal role in driving economic growth, knowledge development, and increased visitor numbers, as we strive together to achieve the D33 ambition of becoming one of the top three global cities.”
