It is not any exaggeration to state Dubai as a global city. Furthermore, the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) acts as a gateway for international visitors into this city. Starting from a business center in 1979, the tower has grown to house more than 3 million attendees annually. The tower expanded from its 39-story establishment to a full-blown project encompassing concourses, venues, and business offices. The 40-years’ experience enables the DWTC to establish itself as the chief organizer of more than 500 events in a year. Furthermore, relying on its excellent training program, customer-centric approach and active leadership participation, the DWTC has molded many leaders that solve futuristic problems. DWTC has driven economic growth in the local business environment for ancillary services as well. DWTC facilitates almost 3.3% of Dubai’s GDP, thus, putting things into perspective concerning its contribution to the local economy. Hence, DWTC acts as a beacon of light for the bright prospects of Dubai’s future, therefore, cementing its position in world trade.
