Experience Dubai

The Middle East’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination, Dubai always offers something fresh to see, taste and experience.

An event at Dubai World Trade Centre is an excellent launching point to explore all that Dubai has to offer.

Dubai has grown into an international destination for business and leisure. Visitors can experience famous tourist destinations like Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building; relax on a pristine beach; or venture into the Arabian Desert for sun, sand and adventure. They can explore a myriad of shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, or try outdoor activities like skydiving and kitesurfing. No matter what the interest, Dubai serves up every experience with warm and welcoming Arabian hospitality.

One of Dubai World Trade Centre’s top priorities is to ensure that every visitor’s experience in the city is both impactful and memorable. To help you get the most out of your time in Dubai, we have curated a list of accommodations, dining, shopping and leisure experiences based on their popularity and distance from our venue. We hope this inspires you to go out and embrace everything Dubai has to offer.
