Spotlight on Tariq AlHashimi – Senior Executive, Congress Development
What is your area of responsibility within Dubai Business Events?
I am responsible for our activities to drive international incentive business to Dubai. I attend road shows, conferences and sales missions where I meet with hosted buyers to discuss Dubai’s dynamic business events offerings within the incentive market and update them on the latest activities going on in the city.
What is your favourite part of the job?
The most enjoyable part of my job is the great team spirit we have within the Dubai Business Events unit. We are like a family. I also enjoy participating in our road shows and study missions, where I am able to network with industry professionals from around the world and learn about the latest trends in the industry. I take great pride in representing Dubai through my role with Dubai Business Events.
What’s your favourite Dubai experience?
One of my absolute favourite things to do in Dubai is to go to the desert during the winter months. There is nothing better than heading out to sand dunes on a weekend and camp with friends. I also enjoy spending time at Madinat Jumeirah which, to me, is kind of an all-in-one place to visit with an amazing Arabic theme, delicious restaurants, beach access and a modern replica of a traditional souk.
