Dubai Business Events works towards achieving goals
Dubai Business Events (DBE) is working towards helping business events fulfill the goals defined in the city’s economic agenda outlined earlier this year.
Launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Dubai in January, the Dubai Economic Agenda D33 aims to double Dubai’s economy over the next decade and consolidate its position among the top three global cities.
Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, said that business events in the city will play a key role in meeting that agenda.
“Dubai’s business events ecosystem continues to be an important driver of not only increased visitation to the city and tourism-related GDP, but also the development of key sectors and the growth of the wider knowledge economy,” he said. “The city’s robust presence at IMEX presents a strong message to the global industry that Dubai can provide them with a comprehensive platform for sharing knowledge, professional development and networking. From association congresses and corporate meetings to incentive groups of all sizes, Dubai has consistently proven to be the ideal destination for meeting planners to achieve their objectives.”
