Our attendance also allows us to meet face-to-face with destination management companies and industry associations to champion the UAE capital as a dynamic, global business events hub. With our presence at IBTM World 2021 also coinciding with the UAE’s Golden Jubilee celebrations, the event will give us an opportunity to reflect on how the business tourism industry will form a critical component in the development of the country over the next five decades.”
