Business Etiquette & Culture in Abu Dhabi

Majlis in Arabic means ‘top-level meeting place’ and, in Abu Dhabi, the traditional majlis – a tented meeting place where warm hospitality is offered before negotiations begin – has been the setting for business meetings since the Silk Road’s heyday. 

The traditional meeting space, which also characterised the early signing of petroleum concessions, lives on today and Abu Dhabi’s majlises are now among the most advanced and competitive meeting places in the world. Abu Dhabi has taken the best of the past and refreshed it with state-of-the-art offerings that ensure only the finest for both the present and future.
