While the vast majority of business may be conducted remotely via email or telephone, Dubai's travel and transport network and location as a link between Europe and Asia makes face-to-face meetings simple. An extensive independent MasterCard survey showed that over eight million tourists and business travelers stayed in Dubai in 2011, that's more than New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo, proving that businesses based in Dubai are not only internationally viable but also globally accessible.
Dubai is the third largest re-export hub in the world and home to Jebel Ali port, one of the top ten busiest worldwide. Dubai World Central Airport will be the world's largest and during 2011, its first full year of operation, carried 90,000 tons of air freight.
Events and Exhibitions
Dubai is also the Middle East's number one business tourism destination, hosting leading industry events and exhibitions to millions of trade visitors looking to source local goods and services each year. In its own right, the Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) industry drives millions of dollars of revenue for service providers, hotel owners and retailers among many others.
