Congresses, events and communication specialists AIM Group International has opened a new office in Dubai.

The decision to open the new office was linked to a partnership agreement signed with Challenge Network. 

Challenge Network specialises in corporate training and management consulting and has been active in Dubai for more than three years, with headquarters in Rome.

"Dubai is one of the emerging destinations in the international meetings market. The government is investing heavily to further develop this industry over the coming years said," AIM Group director international operations Marco Quagliarella.

"Because of these characteristics, we identified it as a considerable opportunity for growth and internationalisation. Expo Dubai 2020, a huge event dedicated to development and innovation, was another key influencer in deciding to undertake this collaboration and will undoubtedly positively impact our growth prospects."

The Dubai office will be led by Mariano Genzone, regional manager of the Middle East and Africa.

Genzone has been working in Dubai for more than eight years, firstly in destination management and then in corporate consulting and training.

The team in Dubai will support clients with training projects and the organisation of meetings and events, as well as being active as a Destination Management Company.
