  • A world class Exhibition center in Dubai, there are many expos happening there all the year round and people come from all around the world to participate in the exhibitions. There are many exhibition halls and is a very large space, it is also connected to the train station (Subway station). It is better to go by train buy if you go by car , it will be difficult to get the parking.
  • The best trade center in Dubai. Plenty of events most of all the time. A must visit place for all the people in Dubai. It's very big and you'll have to walk, so be prepared. The halls are very big and the best for all the events.
