Future Cities Trade Delegation to UAE from Europe

Dubai waterfrontThe United Arab Emirates (UAE) is defining the future of urban development. Already home to the world's largest structure, the Burjkhalifa, many more innovative new developments are being planned. And since being named host to Expo 2020, a new drive to create 'smart cities' is underway.

The UAE is calling for innovators and specialists from around the world to bring its ambitious plans to life. 

To bring these opportunities to businesses in Europe, COBCOE is a co-organising the 'Future Cities' trade delegation to Dubai in September 2017. We are now working with the British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates to create a unique trade delegation with two key elements:

  • Pre-arranged meetings carefully matched to each participant's business objectives
  • A full schedule of private tours of key developments and iconic buildings

This trade delegation is likely to be most valuable to businesses in the following sectors:

  • Property development
  • Construction
  • Urban planning
  • Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Supporting industries such as interior design

The 'Future cities delegation will allow participants to learn about the futuristic concepts being brought to life in the UAE. The cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi are leading the world in urban development, engineering, urban development, futuristic visitor attractions and green technology.

European expertise, skills, talent and vision are needed now to make planned projects a reality in future. Patnering in this specialist trade delegation is the first of a number of initiatives where we are acting as a catalyst for international business by enabling European specialists to find opportunities in international markets.

Importantly, this trade delegation is focused on individual delegates' needs. The organisers will tailor aspects of the schedule and pre-arranged meetings to ensure that every delegate is able to make contact with companies that are useful to their businesses. 

The two-day programme for 19 and 20 September includes tours of:

  • Burjkhalifa (currently the world's tallest structure)
  • Opera House
  • Expo 2020
  • Masdar City
  • Saadiyat Island
  • Habtoor City
  • Business Bay 

W Hotel Dubai Al Habtoor interiorDelegates are responsible for their own travel to Dubai. The trade mission includes three nights' accommodation at the W Hotel Dubai Al Habtoor, a futuristic five star hotel, with all meals and transfer arrangements.
