Dubai is one of the most important cities in the United Arab Emirates alongside Abu Dhabi. While Abu Dhabi is the predominant financial centre in the Middle East, Dubai is rather known by tourists as the number one destination. But what makes Dubai a MICE destination? Is it the ultra-modern architecture, the location on the Persian Gulf or is it the lifestyle between western modernity and oriental luxury?

Dubai, the desert city built on sand, is constantly growing. Hardly has a new hotspot been declared a landmark than even higher, even bigger and even more spectacular buildings and sights are being built. And although the Dubai Mall is already the largest mall in the world, work is currently in progress on a new mall twice the size. The latest project at Dubai Creek Harbour is scheduled for completion this year, in time for Expo 2020 in Dubai. On the 4.5-kilometer-long promenade with lifestyle districts, yacht club, marina and a total of 22 new hotels, construction work is in full progress. The heart of the Dubai Creek Harbour district will be the tower with its viewing platform and breathtaking 360-degree view over the whole of Dubai. With its size, “The Tower” will even overtop the Burj Khalifa.

MICE Destination Dubai – Meetings in the splendor of the Orient

Are you planning a meeting, convention or conference in Dubai? Many of the luxury hotels have function rooms or event areas for presentations and seminars. Large events for up to 4,500 delegates can easily be held at the Madinat Jumeirah Conference Centre. There are also various ballrooms of varying sizes. Elegance in Arabic style also awaits you in the outdoor facilities. Special receptions and business lunches are given a special setting in the Magnolia – Jumeirah Al Qasr. Whether boardroom, sunset lounge or beach, here you will find the right location for every kind of event.

Experience Dubai by night. Because after sunset the pulsating nightlife begins in the city with its countless lights. At the foot of the 830 m high Burj Khalifa, visitors and residents of the city meet to marvel at the Dubai Fountain. The water jets and lights dance to the music. Around the square you will find numerous restaurants and cafes from where you can admire the spectacle every half hour.

The Palm Dubai

Spend a day on the artificial island off Dubai. By car or by train, you will walk along the main road, which represents the palm trunk. To the left and right, the palm leaves, which are covered with houses, split off. The Atlantis adventure hotel is enthroned at the head of the palm tree. Among other things, this is the home of the Lost Chambers Aquarium with over 65,000 marine animals. Immerse yourself in the fascinating underwater world, visit the playful sea lions, swim with dolphins or slide through the Aquaventure Waterpark. Culinary refreshments are available in one of the numerous restaurants or bars, which are also suitable as event locations or for receptions.
