20 May, 2015
Dubai’s ongoing efforts to position itself as a premier destination for international business events are bearing fruit, with the city retaining its top ranking in the Middle East region and climbing 19 places globally to 44th position in the 2014 International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA) World Rankings – up from 63rd place in 2013. ICCA registered 56 international association meetings as being held in Dubai in 2014, an increase of 51 per cent over the 19 meetings that were held in 2013. The current statistics make Dubai the uncontested regional hub for international business events.
