Hotel & Conference Venues in Dubai
Dubai offers conference and event organisers some of the most unique, luxurious and modern MICE venues in the world. The Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC) is situated in the heart of the World Trade Centre and this complex offers 92,903 square metres of multipurpose space for large association meetings and exhibitions. The Trade Centre Area offers a large space able to host events for over 10,000 delegates and the DICEC can accommodate smaller meetings or breakout sessions with over 30 versatile meeting rooms offering space for 20-200+ attendees.
For something completely different why not try the Atlantis The Palm ?
Situated on the spectacular man-made Palm Island, Atlantis can provide a unique venue coupled with outstanding service. The venue boasts one of the largest conference centres in Dubai, offering impressive outdoor venues for different types of functions as well as catering for conferences with 14 meeting rooms, two boardrooms and three ballrooms; so you could host a small intimate meeting or use one of the ballrooms for up to 8,000 guests.
Dubai offers world class hotels, many being between five and seven stars. Opened in 2013 the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is the tallest hotel in the world. It accommodates over 1,600 rooms and suites across its two towers both with 72 floors. In close proximity to the main business district, this hotel has 32 different event spaces to suit to your conference needs.
A long standing MICE favourite is the iconic wave shaped Jumeirah Beach Hotel. All the hotel’s 618 rooms, suites and villas are luxuriously furnished and provide spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf. The Hotel offers a range of beautiful meeting spaces, each suited to a range of events. Choose from a venue in the standalone conference centre or how about one of the superb outdoor venues and spacious restaurants or even on the sparkling Arabian Gulf itself.
For those slightly smaller meetings the new Sofitel Dubai Downtown offers 12 different event spaces with the largest having a maximum capacity of 500 delegates. So should you need a more intimate space the Sofitel can offer state of the art and well equipped rooms. With 350 rooms including 76 suites the Sofitel is a modern and glamorous choice for your delegates to stay
