As a multi-faceted destination that offers visitors a multitude of different experiences, events form a key element of Dubai’s tourism strategy that is guided by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai to ensure Dubai becomes the most sought after destination and the best city in the world to live and work in. It is truly encouraging to note that just as the international sporting spectacle kicks off in Qatar, this forum will provide a platform for thought-provoking discussions on sports – an intrinsic part of the UAE’s social fabric and its role in the global economy, in addition to facilitating dialogue on other sectors. Dubai looks forward to a World Corporate Summit that will be fruitful for every participant, and which will contribute further towards broadening Dubai’s global appeal as a must-visit destination.”
