Emirates Ventures into Congress Management

At the Arabian Travel Market today, Emirates
launched Congress Solutions Dubai - a new initiative in the congress and
meetings business.  A professional congress organizer - Congress Solutions
Dubai - will provide comprehensive management and consultancy services to a
broad range of institutions and associations, seeking to organise large
scale meetings in Dubai. Staffed by a team of experienced multinational professionals, Congress
Solutions Dubai has the capability to plan and execute major exhibitions
from start to finish, including enlisting participants, organising speakers,
providing security, technology and on-site staffing, as well as venue
management, protocol administration, budgeting and finance control. 

Central to the company’s mission is the overall promotion of Dubai as a
global venue. To this end, Congress Solutions Dubai operates with the full
backing and close co-operation of the Dubai Convention Bureau, the
Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, hotels, government bodies and
other related operators.


One thousand copies of the company’s prospectus “Dubai - Ready to Host the
World” have been produced and will be made available to Congress, Event and
Meeting planners, Associations and Federations, Government Institutions and
Agencies, through the Emirates worldwide network and Arabian Adventure’s
offices in the U.A.E, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, UK and USA.



Commenting on the launch of the new business unit, Hans Haensel, Emirates’
Senior Vice President Destination & Leisure Management said: “Dubai’s
ability to host top international sporting and business events has been
recognized internationally for some time, and its world-class infrastructure
was highlighted during the meetings of the Board of Governors of the World
Bank and the International Monetary Fund - a major global conference
involving thousands of high level international dignitaries.”


He added: “Thanks to forward-thinking planning, our emirate now has a well
developed hospitality industry and offers state-of-the-art convention and
exhibition centres with the flexibility to handle groups of any size, from
500 to 25,000 delegates. Dubai is ready to claim an even bigger share of the
world of congresses for itself, and Congress Solutions Dubai will support
this growth by providing end-to-end solutions.”
