Dubai Among World’s Top Destination for Business Events

City rises seven places in two years


Dubai, UAE: The 2015 International Meetings Statistics report published by the Union of International Associations (UIA) ranks Dubai at the 14th place in the world’s top destination for business events.

UIA’s analysis shows Dubai’s consistent rise after the city rose seven places in two years — up from number 21 in 2013. Dubai also entered the league of ‘Top 25 Meetings Destinations in Europe, Middle East, Africa,’ a ranking measured annually by Cvent, a cloud-based event management platform.

Dubai aims to break into the top 10 destination according to Issam Kazim, Chief Eecutive Officer of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing.

Dubai’s rise will be further strengthened by the World Expo in 2020 which will attract nearly 20 million visitors.
