Amidst the global pandemic in July 2020, Dubai was among the first cities in the world to pilot exhibitions organised with new health & safety protocols. More recently between December 2020 and February 2021, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) led the global safe re-opening of international large scale events by successfully organizing two of the world’s largest in-person events, attracting business travellers from more than 150 countries. More events are set to take place in Q1 and Q2 of 2021.
Hosting AHIC in Dubai was vital as it provided a strategic location accessible for a majority of our community members from the Middle East & Africa region. As the city prepares to welcome visitors from around the world for EXPO 2020, which begins on 1 October, we believe Dubai is the best place to welcome the hospitality investment industry.
