About Dubai World Trade Centre

The pioneer of Dubai's rise as a cosmopolitan commercial centre at the crossroads of the world


The epicentre for business in the Middle East, Dubai World Trade Centre has played a pivotal role in the growth of Dubai’s business tourism and trade since our inauguration in 1979.

We connect people, products and ideas from around the globe through our year-round calendar of international trade fairs, blockbuster consumer shows and prestigious international conferences, which are complemented by our innovative free zone and award-winning real estate developments. As the region’s largest purpose-built complex for events and exhibitions, we provide a platform for unparalleled business and networking opportunities.

Each year through our various events we create tens of thousands of jobs for a variety of industries and sectors that benefit from revenue we help attract. Supporting our staff to reach their full potential is integral to our success. We continue to be driven by our ongoing role in helping to shape Dubai’s future and by challenging ourselves to create even better experiences for all our clients, exhibitors and visitors.

Our Story

In 1979, our own Sheikh Rashid Tower made history as Dubai’s first major tower and business centre. The tower soon became the heartbeat of the emirate’s growing business community and inaugurated Sheikh Zayed Road as a bustling skyline and commercial hub.
