Dubai World Trade Centre wins bids to host 10 new events from 2019-2022

The new events are expected to welcome around 37,000 delegates and provide an economic boost of roughly Dhs700m

Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has won the bids to host 10 new international congresses at the venue from 2019 – 2022.

The new events are expected to bring in approximately 37,000 delegates from around the world and provide an economic boost valued at roughly Dhs700m ($190m), a statement said.

This year, DWTC will host two space-themed congresses organised by the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC).

An anticipated 2,500 delegates will attend the fourth Young Professionals in Space Conference (YPS) in October 2019. And in November, the 22nd International Academy of Astronautics Human in Space Symposium will be held in the Middle East for the first time as part of MBRSC’s efforts to promote the UAE as a hub for space science and research.

In 2020, DWTC will host the sixth Global Symposiums on Health Systems Research which will welcome an estimated 2,500 delegates in November. The event will see policymakers, researchers and practitioners convene to discuss improving health policy and systems research in the region.

The 40th Congress of the Societe International d’Urologie is also set to be hosted in 2020, with 3,000 delegates expected to attend.

For 2021, confirmed events include the ACTE Society of Petroleum Engineers which will see 10,000 oil and gas professionals from across the globe participate; the World Congress of Gastroenterology which will be attended by 8,000-10,000 delegates; the World Confederation for Physical Therapy Congress 2021 which will welcome 5,000 delegates; the World Congress of the Asian Pacific Society of Cardiology; and the fifth edition of the ISPRS Geospatial Week.

DWTC won the bid to host the International Conference on Space Operations in 2022.

The events will help boost Dubai’s position as a destination for the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) and business events industry, the statement added.

Mahir Julfar, SVP – Venue Services Management, DWTC said: “DWTC’s strategic location within the business hub of one of the most connected and visited cities in the world, coupled with the ability to attract business professionals across various sectors to share and exchange knowledge in a dynamic setting, remains a catalyst in our journey as a leading business events venue.”
