Dubai Business Events (DBE), the city’s official convention bureau, has done a great job in bidding and winning conferences yet another year. A total of 120 events for the year 2021 visited Dubai, boosting the emirate’s key sectors and bringing innovation and economic growth.
Dubai’s successful handling of the COVID-19 has only added value to the destination for associations. Among the major events were the 27th International Council of Museums (ICOM) General Conference in 2025, the BIR World Recycling Convention & Exhibition (2022), Asian Congress in Pediatric Nephrology (2023) and the Congress of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (2024).
Steen Jakobsen, Assistant Vice President, Dubai Business Events, said: “Our partners across hotels, venues, service providers and others within the business events ecosystem have always embraced the city’s culture of collaboration, and in 2022 this will be more important than ever, as we look to leverage our world-leading tourism and events recovery and provide planners and associations with compelling reasons to bring their conferences and meetings to Dubai. We are encouraging stakeholders to join and support DBE in our year-round calendar of activities both in Dubai and in source markets around the world, as well as of course in bidding for and hosting events.”
