Dubai issues new guidelines for hosting business events safely

Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing has issued official guidelines on how business events can take place safely as the city prepares to resume its calendar of conferences and exhibitions. With locally organised meetings taking place from 15 September and international meetings returning to the city from 1 October, the guidelines focus on protecting the health and safety of all participants, including delegates and staff, while ensuring they are able to host and experience impactful meetings that meet the needs of all stakeholders involved.

Key measures venues and organisers must implement include social distancing, temperature checks, the safe dispensation of F&B and regular sanitisation of facilities.

All visitors must present a negative Covid-19 PCR test certificate to be accepted on a flight to Dubai. Tourists are also obliged to download the Covid-19 DXB app.

The new guidelines complement procedures already in place at the airport, hotels, restaurants, attractions and other visitor touchpoints around the city.
