Our Business in Brief

Dubai World Trade Centre is committed to facilitating world-class business networking with end-to-end integrated services through our venue, commercial properties and free zone.

Through our 121,000 square metres of event space, we provide an ideal and impeccably-serviced showcase for global organisations.

Dubai World Trade Centre offers a venue for every event, from industry conferences and gala dinners to networking and board meetings. We also provide the infrastructure our organisers and exhibitors need to be successful, including event service teams who deliver comprehensive support.

Middle Eastern hospitality is our way of life. We’ve hosted royalty, international dignitaries and guests from around the world. Along the way, we’ve gained considerable expertise in satisfying eclectic palates. Hospitality and Weddings by Dubai World Trade Centre are additional key offerings, along with Event Plus, our dedicated online e-commerce platform and services targeted at exhibitors.

We handle the key facilities management services for all properties we own or manage, including all engineering, housekeeping, infrastructure, emergency response and health and safety.

Over 40 years of experience and being the region's largest event venue

Every year our Events and Exhibitions team put on an impressive portfolio of shows, ranging from niche trade events to mass-market consumer expos across a range of sectors like Food and Hospitality, Marine, Lifestyle, ICT and Consumer.

Currently, we own and organise 22 of the region’s largest exhibitions, and our team are continually developing new ideas for all our B2B and B2C shows, in-line with global trends.

To serve our event and exhibit clients better, we also own DXB Live, an in-house experiential agency. The DXB Live approach brings together top industry experts with a comprehensive, 360-degree philosophy that drives all our creative concepting, strategic marketing and high-end production value.
