Dubai’s main business and tradeshow hub, Dubai World Trade Centre is located at the start of Sheikh Zayed Road and his home to the city’s exhibition centre – boasting nine enormous halls and ballrooms, some of which offer more than 31,000 square metres of space. World Trade Centre even has its own Metro station, a short walk from the exhibition halls and accommodation. Entertaining business associates post-meetings and exhibitions is easy within the area, which is home to numerous hotels as well as the prestigious World Trade Club with its fine dining, signature restaurant. In the development’s plaza, lunchtime dining options are plentiful and the al fresco area is a popular meeting place. Attractive area towers such as World Trade Centre Residence offer high quality properties with great onsite facilities. During big exhibitions the area can get crowded so leisure options are better suited for speedy casual bites such as at McGettigan’s, a very popular casual restaurant and bar.
