The pair have pledged their support to strengthen the state's position in the international life sciences conference field, while simultaneously creating more educational opportunities for life sciences professionals within the UAE.

DuBiotech – a community of 70 biotechnology, pharmaceutical, laboratory equipment companies and testing laboratories, including the likes of Pfizer, Amgen, and Bristol-Myers Squibb – will facilitate the involvement of industry experts in workshops and seminars, while providing industry insight and support in the bidding process for new conferences in the life sciences industries.

Hamad Bin Mejren, executive director of Dubai's Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), DBE's parent company said: "This partnership presents a dynamic working environment for Dubai to exploit its growing reputation as a life sciences knowledge hub by uniting efforts to attract health conferences to Dubai, while also continuing the overall goal of positioning Dubai as a global business hub."

Marwan Abdulaziz, executive director of TECOM Investment’s Business Parks DuBiotech and EnPark commented: "We are delighted to have partnered with the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing. Together we will help to achieve our leadership’s aim of further developing Dubai as the leading destination in the world by attracting a plethora of lively conferences and events.

"In enabling Dubai to become a centre for business, we are putting our emirate on the map as a strategic hub for industry-focused discussion and decisions. We look forward to growing our strategic partnership with DTCM and creating interesting and inspiring events that help build Dubai’s innovation economy," he added.
