Business events are set to restart in Dubai, with 16 July seeing the start of the emirate’s first major live in-person leadership business event organised by Dubai World Trade Centre.
The AI Everything x Restart Dubai Summer Conference, hosted by the National Program of Artificial Intelligence, will celebrate the United Arab Emirate’s AI efforts during this time of pandemic.
The event promises exclusive face-to-face conversations with government and private sector leaders from healthcare, education, retail, e-commerce, tourism and hospitality.
“The support and enthusiasm from our speakers, exhibitors, partners, the wider business community and our very own team have been so exceptional,” said executive vice-president, Dubai World Trade Centre, Trixie LohMirmand.
Dubai has started to welcome again international tourists, complete with comprehensive precautionary measures and protocols to ensure the highest international standards of health and safety.
Crown Prince of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum visited Dubai Airport to review the preparations and preventive protocols in place to welcome tourists back, starting from 7 July.
Ahead of the reopening, Dubai had received the Safe Travels Stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), which validates the stringent global hygiene and safety protocols the city has put in place.
Ranked one of the world’s five most visited cities for the fifth year in a row by Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index (GDCI) 2019, Dubai welcomed 15.93m international overnight visitors last year.
