Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC)

The 7 th Emirates Family Medicine Society Congress will take place in Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), Za'abeel Hall 6. Since opening in 1979, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has played a central role in the growth of the region’s international trade. With over 1.3 million square feet of covered exhibition space, it is the region’s largest purpose-built events complex, hosting over 500 business events annually and welcoming over 3 million visitors. DWTC serves as a multi- dimensional business catalyst, focusing on Venues, Exhibitions and Event Organising, and Real Estate Management. Most recently, the establishment of the new Dubai World Trade Centre Authority as a Free Zone entity has strengthened DWTC’s ability to deliver a logistically efficient, business-conducive regulatory environment, offering global enterprises a uniquely flexible base from which to service new growth opportunities across continents.
