DTCM makes MICE push with planners gathering
Emirate to host Meeting & Incentive (M&I) Forum Europe Spring 2015
Meeting planners from around the world are set to converge on Dubai next March for a six-gathering aimed at increasing number of business conferences held in emirate.
Over 225 meeting planners are expected to attend the Meeting & Incentive (M&I) Forum Europe Spring 2015, which will take place March 9-14.
It will be hosted by Dubai Business Events (DBE) – the Official Convention Bureau, a division of the Dubai Department of Commerce and Tourism Marketing (DTCM), in partnership with JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, Emirates Airlines and a number of local DMCs.
The hosted buyers will hold over 5,000 consultations with dozens of Dubai-based event suppliers and will familiarise themselves with the emirate and its infrastructure. They will also meet representatives from the hospitality sector.
“Europe and the UK in particular are extremely important markets for Dubai’s business events industry and our hosting of the M&I Forum Europe Spring 2015 reflects this,” said Dubai Business Events director Steen Jakobsen.
“We are witnessing strong business tourism visitor growth numbers from continental Europe and the UK and are very pleased to host this high-quality networking event as part of our extensive efforts to further build global awareness of Dubai’s business events and incentives credentials.”
In 2015, Dubai will join Vienna, Austria; Edinburgh, Scotland; St. Petersburg, USA; St. Julian’s, Malta; and Cebu, the Philippines in hosting M&I Forums to showcase their offering to a global audience of events professionals.
