Opening Ceremony

Discovering Dubai

WCN 2019 took place in magnificent Dubai, one of the largest cities in the United Arab Emirates, at the World Trade Centre. The Dubai World Trade Centre was erected in 1979. It is a purpose-built complex for events and exhibitions. The building is featured on the 100 dirham banknote.

Even though the city has a relatively new history, it has managed to become a synonym of modern architecture, engineering achievements, and technology. With its impressive skyscrapers architecture, sophisticated infrastructure, and luxurious beachline, the city is home to the highest building in the world Burj Khalifa, which is surrounded by fountains that create an incredible light show with music and water every evening, as well as the 7-star Burj Al Arab hotel and its modernistic design that resembles a boat, the artificial island of Palm Jumeirah, home to private villas and luxurious hotels. You can travel through the "stem" of the palm with a driverless train and enjoy the magnificent view of the seaside that lies ahead.
