Since its inception in 1979, the Dubai World Trade Centre has been instrumental in establishing Dubai's position as a global financial and commercial hub, and remains a vibrant business epicentre for the region.
The historic landmark on Dubai's dynamic skyscraper corridor of Sheikh Zayed Road is the iconic 37-storey Sheikh Rashid office tower, commissioned as the first property of the Dubai World Trade Centre. DWTC facilities have expanded since, to comprise the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), the Convention Tower office building, on-site accommodation at the Novotel and Ibis hotels and serviced accommodation at the Dubai International Hotel Apartments. The newest addition to the DICEC complex is the Sheikh Saeed Halls - a state-of-the-art extension that opened for the 2009 Exhibition Season. Comprising of four new halls, this extension brings the DICEC's total amount of covered exhibition space to over a million square feet. The halls have been designed and built with the aim of fuelling the growing momentum of the MICE sector in Dubai and handling the increased demand for exhibition space throughout the region. In addition to this venue, DWTC also manages the Airport Expo Dubai. With an infrastructure ideally suited for industrial trade shows, this 33,000 square meter venue is adjacent to the Dubai Airport and is home to the prestigious Air Show Dubai.
