Since its formation in 1971 with the joining of seven states, the United Arab Emirates has become an economic centre of influence in the Middle East.

In fact, the hotels of Dubai are so famous for their ambiance and service that they’re featured in countless articles and are the recipients of numerous awards for best luxury accommodations. Most famous, of course, is the Burj Al Arab—built to look like a billowing sail stretching more than 1,000 feet into the air.
British celebrity chefs like Gary Rhodes and Gordon Ramsay have opened high-end restaurants in Dubai and food writers from around the world have blogged about the tasty treats they’ve eaten from tiny stalls and food stands in the “cheap-eats” section of Dubai. US celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain dined in a Pakistani restaurant before taking his CNN camera crew to watch the art of camel racing.

A place where business leaders make connections. A place where economic development is always in full-swing. Emirates Airlines offers flights from Dubai to over 140 destinations in six continents.
