Dubai has a track-record of successfully hosting world-class business events, thanks in part to the spirit of cooperation which exists between the government, industry and local communities.
The ‘world’s next door neighbour’, at the crossroads of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Dubai offers easy access to many of the world’s largest and fastest-growing economies. One-third of the global population is within four hours flying-time and two-thirds are within eight hours.
The competitive advantages of choosing Dubai are numerous: a leading international centre for business, commerce, industry and tourism, with a dynamic workforce and a government which continues to invest in strategic infrastructure and transportation projects to ensure a prosperous economic future.
The Emirate prides itself on its business-friendly policies. Always a trading society, it has brought its ‘open doors’ spirit into the modern world, attracting foreign business and investment through free-trade zones, zero income tax and VAT, and a favorable corporate taxation policy.
Home to more than 200 nationalities, Dubai welcomes individuals of all backgrounds and faiths. It offers a relaxed, pleasant and cosmopolitan lifestyle, a safe and secure environment with minimal crime, high-quality accommodation and a diverse range of leisure activities.
