About Dubai

Dubai offers something for every type of business event, from world-class comfort to dynamic and prosperous business opportunities. Located on the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai is the natural meeting place at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, and a global hub for trade, commerce, knowledge exchange and innovation.

Our city enjoys a strategic location and serves as the biggest re-exporting centre in the Middle East. Its low logistical and operational costs combined with excellent infrastructure, international outlook and liberal government policies have transformed Dubai into the regions’ most dynamic and prosperous business hub.

Dubai’s global success is also a product of our global outlook. We have an open, multicultural society that is bilingual in Arabic and English, and extremely tolerant of different religious beliefs. The local populace preserves Dubai’s Islamic heritage, but all people and religious beliefs are welcome here.

Dubai is the second largest Emirate by population and size. Dubai borders the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Dubai has been an economically dynamic city since long before the establishment of the UAE in 1971. In the years since, it has demonstrated a track record of remarkable economic growth and political stability. Over this period, Dubai has moved from being a small, local trading city into a global hub of commerce.

Dubai has fostered a dynamic and open trading economy in less than two decades. Strategically located at the crossroads of trade and commerce between Europe, Africa and Asia, Dubai has leveraged its position and built world-class infrastructure to become the undisputed regional hub for trade, logistics, business, finance, retail and leisure.
