The Dubai Association Conference will return for its third edition on 21 February 2022 at Dubai Exhibition Centre, within the Expo 2020 Dubai site
The association is running a series of smaller online events in the lead up to the February big date to maximise the impact and address key topics delegates may wish to explore further at the main conference in person. The first of these online sessions took place on 15 June.
The February conference will be hosted under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and chairman of Dubai Executive Council.
The theme of the 2022 conference will be, ‘Associations and the new world: Resilience and Reinvention’. The new Dubai Exhibition Centre will be the venue and sits within the Expo 2020 Dubai site.
The conference is the flagship event of the Dubai Association Centre (DAC), which was established in 2014 as a joint initiative of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) to support and license regional and international associations in setting up an office or chapter in Dubai. DAC opened its state-of-the-art offices in One Central, DWTC in December 2019, providing a collaborative environment for registered associations.
Following the conference, delegates will be offered a full-day immersive visit to Expo 2020 Dubai to experience the thematic and national pavilions, attend celebrations and events, and sample cultures and cuisine from around the world.
