Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has revealed its 2023 results, showcasing a significant surge in international attendance with 2.47 million visitors, marking a 25% increase from the previous year. The growth was propelled by 301 MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) and consumer events, reflecting a 23% rise compared to the previous year.

The upswing in visitors underscores the diverse calendar of DWTC, highlighted by 107 exhibitions, international association conventions, and industry conferences. These events collectively drew 1.56 million attendees, with a remarkable 33% increase year-on-year. Notably, international attendees reached 722,000, marking a substantial 60% growth from the previous year. These events featured participation from 53,789 exhibiting companies, with 78% of them being international.

The increase in foreign business attendees aligns with Dubai’s D33 Agenda, aimed at positioning the emirate as a top-three global economic city by 2033.

DWTC also hosted 35 entertainment, live, and leisure events, attracting over 850,000 visitors collectively.

H.E. Helal Saeed Almarri, director-general of Dubai World Trade Centre Authority, emphasized the robust dynamics of Dubai’s economy and its strategic focus on key industry sectors. He highlighted Dubai’s leading status as a global hub for knowledge, innovation, and business.
