    Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai Exhibition Centre. It is held in various exhibitions throughout the year. Spacious lounges and all services available. Difficult parking and there is a building under construction will solve the problem of multi-role attitudes. I would recommend using Dubai Metro to get to the fair

    It's absolutely a wonderful venue. Located very next to metro station and also have parking close to the center. Well organized place.Great venue to conduct group programs as well as exhibitions. We use to go there more frequently during summer as they opened Dubai Sports World in here.

    Amazing place. Great facilities with spacious halls suitable for trade fairs. Humongous area ahead for parking. The centre hall connects two wings of consecutive halls. The inbuilt fountains are soothing.

    Having seen this iconic building for 36 years that was constructed in 1979 the tallest tower those days makes me feel proud to be part of Dubai since then. Having an office in here is considered to be lucky.

    Great place for exhibitions I go there twice a year at least. Luxury place with an embedded metro station. Don't go with your car specially during Gitex, it's hard to get parking there.

    It's a good and quiet place with its own paid parking. I went to Modesh world with my family. It was fun . There is also sports complex type area.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
