Abu Dhabi is fast becoming the arts and cultural hub of the Middle East, which was a contributory factor in choosing the destination for our conference. Every event has its challenges, but we always had the advice and guidance of the Bureau providing local knowledge and expertise. We were impressed by the offerings Abu Dhabi provided and are hugely grateful for the support which contributed to the event being a huge success.

My preconceptions have been shattered by my visit. I was thrilled by the weather – it wasn’t too hot, and the people were extremely hospitable. I was impressed by the destination’s diversity. It has the culture and heritage appeal that Asian clients look for. It is a great mix of modern and history.
Zachary Low — Business Development Director, Silver Bullet event management company, Singapore
We have learnt about and experienced the culture and feel totally reassured. This destination can get business from America because many Americans want to explore new frontiers and Abu Dhabi has a mystery about it which will intrigue them. It also has the best customer service I’ve seen anywhere and I travel 38 weeks each year!

Abu Dhabi has grown to become an international business hub, a flourishing cultural centre and a leading economic force in its own right. Our choice of Abu Dhabi demonstrated Deloitte’s commitment to the UAE and strong belief in its infrastructure, fundamentals, and services to successfully deliver an event of this nature.
Omar Fahoum — Chairman and CEO, Deloitte Middle East
Destination selection for our prestigious annual Sales Conference is always a strategic decision due to high-volume invitations received by our international executive delegates and their need for compact and convenient travel schedules. Therefore, the team had to ensure that the location was enticing and could provide a well-developed infrastructure. Abu Dhabi delivered on all counts!
