Combining leading infrastructure with integrated logistics and servicing capabilities, DWTC has warranted this level of continued global confidence as our performance demonstrates the tangible ‘networking’ value that Dubai can deliver to our international, regional and local audiences.”

Participating businesses have witnessed strong returns enabling sector specific trade shows and conferences to register substantial growth, and as a facilitator of this forum, we are pleased to be able to play a contributing role in supporting sector stability and broader economic development for Dubai and the Middle East.”
