The first event to kick-off in the UAE's DWTC will be the Global HSE Conference (Health and Safety Environment) in February 2015, followed by the Nuviun Digital Health and Medical Technology Conference 2015 in May.

Some 7,000 delegates will head to the 11th Worldwide China Insurance Congress and Dragon Awards Ceremony in August.

Other key events that will take place in the second half of 2015 include The International Federation of Consulting Engineers 2015 and Consumer Rights Conference.

Confirmed congresses for 2016 include the 61st Distripress Annua Congress, the 34th International Congress of the International Society of Blood Transfusion, which was won through a competitive bid process that included Paris, Rome and Copenhagen, and the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition, which itself will bring in 10,000 visitors. 

World Congress for Brain, Spinal Cord Mapping will be held in March 2017 and The Institute of Internal Auditors Conference will take place in May 2018.

DWTC is part of the ‘Bid Alliance’, which is a collaboration of the emirate’s stakeholders that have united to create a communal approach to handling international congress bids. The group is part of the Dubai Business Events – The Official Convention Bureau, a division of Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
