Dubai incentives - action stations

Dubai's incentives run from dune surfing to indoor skiing in malls

BURN RUBBER
Ideal for petrol heads
Thrillseekers should head to Dubai Autodrome where groups of up to 56 can line up against each other over a three-mile circuit. Cars available include sleek Audi TT's, four-wheel drive Subarus or, for those with a real taste for it, single-seater racers. Sessions can be booked for half or full days.

TAKE A GOOD SWING
Ideal for tee-timers
Dubai has no shortage of impressive golf facilities. Situated in Emirate Hills is The Montgomerie, a par-72 championship course that boasts the world's largest green. Other prime spots include the 18-hole Al Badia golf course and Nakheel Golf, a collection of six courses designed by Greg Norman.

CRUISE, SWIM AND LUNCH
Ideal for water babies
Get down to the marina and catch a catamaran between the islands. Here you can see The World and the Palms as they continue under construction as well as the Burj Al Arab. Lunch is served on board and delegates can dip into the Arabian Gulf, for swimming and snorkelling.

GO SAFARI
Ideal for sand fans
From dune bashing to sand-skiing, Dubai offers no shortage of desert-based activities. A traditional Arabic feast under moonlight is still a must-do for any incentive group. Inside Bedouin tents, delegates can get tattooed with henna, listen to foot-tapping Arabic entertainment or watch belly-dancing.

HEAD FOR THE MOUNTAINS
Ideal for high-lifers
Work is already underway for Sunny Mountain Ski dome, a winter wonderland that opens next year in Dubailand. However, you can get a taste for what's to come by visiting Ski Dubai at the Kempinski, the first ski-resort in the Middle East. Should this feel all slightly too extravagant or ecologically suspect, head for the real mountains of Hatta instead. The Hajar mountain range, which separate, the UAE from Oman and Yemen, and are well worth a visit.
