30 Jul Dubai- Destination Diary
Dubai has emerged as one of the top choices for companies and organisations hosting meetings, conferences, exhibitions and incentive trips. It is especially popular for incentive trips if you are looking to do something out of the ordinary and something most delegates wouldn’t have experienced at other events.
With over 100 airlines operating to Dubai, you have a wide variety of carriers to choose from. Dubai International Airport is ranked the world’s number one hub for international passengers with annual traffic of over 89 million passengers in 2017.
The destination offers a huge range of exciting and most importantly unusual activities. From helicopter rides to camel polo to dinner in the desert, there are plenty of cultural attractions to compliment business meetings.
Although Arabic is the official language of the UAE, English is the most spoken language in Dubai.
With world-class facilities, a range of hotels to suit every budget, state-of-the-art technology and a can-do attitude, Dubai hosts hundreds of trade shows, exhibitions, events, meetings and conferences every year. The Size of venues Dubai has to offer makes it particularly attractive destination for larger events. For instance, The Dubai World Trade Centre has a great versatile exhibition and meeting space with a vast range of bedroom options available within close proximity. Our clients favour Dubai as a reliable destination in terms of service levels and quality of the venues. Whilst there is a diverse pool of properties available, the standard is extremely high and contributes to its attraction. Our clients particularly like Dubai as it is constantly evolving. With many new venues and exciting new activities coming on stream, it manages to stay fresh and innovative.
Value for Money
we find that Dubai is reasonably priced, especially in the five-star market, which is very competitive and offers excellent value for money.
Winter Sun Destination
It is one of the most accessible destinations for winter sun with direct flights from most European hubs. Winters are warm and short with an average high of 23 °C.
Despite all of the above there are significant cultural differences and many things to keep in mind when planning an event in Dubai. Such as some hotels will not serve alcohol or there will be limitations on when it is sold. We are very aware of them and will be fully involved in the planning process to make sure you haven’t missed crucial details.
