The Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) opened the Dubai Convention Bureau (DCB), which will complement the department's on-going efforts to boost the Emirate's Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) sector and promote facilities and provisions of the Dubai Convention Center (DCB).
According to DTCM Director General, Khalid A Bin Sulayem, the DCB was formed not only to meet the growing demand of Dubai's MICE industry but also to establish the emirate as an international business tourism destination. It supports all the convention hotels and venues of Dubai by marketing their facilities regionally as well as internationally and bids on behalf of Dubai at the international events.
He noted that DCB would be a key player in attracting major conferences in the emirate. “The decision of international bodies to hold more and more global conferences and meetings in Dubai is in appreciation of the emirate's strategic importance, road infrastructure, choice of hotels, international airport, modern telecommunications and excellent services”. — (menareport.com)
