The Dubai World Trade Centre has played a pivotal role in the growth of international trade for the Middle East, ever since our inauguration in 1979. Then, it was through the landmark 39-storey Sheikh Rashid Tower. Today they are the region’s largest purpose-built complex for events and exhibitions.
Being in the centre of (business) tourism in the region, DWTC plays a significant role in the regional MICE industry through its size, resources, diversity of calendar and scale of events as well as by connecting people through the events DWTC hosts. DWTC contributes substantially to the economies of Dubai and the UAE by generating a lot of jobs and revenue for the city and the country.
