Making Business Happen in Dubai

About the event

Our ‘Making Business Happen in Dubai Together’ event in Edinburgh presented why Bulgari, Duracell, Google Campus for Entrepreneurs, Lukoil, Pepsi, Rio Tinto, NATS and over 15,000 more businesses are thriving in the DMCC Free Zone, Dubai.

Dubai’s unrivalled connectivity means that 8 hours on a plane in any direction gives access to 65 percent of the global GDP and two-thirds of the world population, which makes it the ideal base for Start-ups, SMEs and large enterprises alike targeting markets in Central Asia, Middle East, Africa, Asian Subcontinent and Eastern Mediterranean.

Who Attended?

Representatives of newly established businesses as well as entrepreneurs and companies considering the option of global expansion and/or setting up a business in Dubai.

They left armed with lots of practical advice about:

  • Setting up a business in Dubai
  • The key advantages of setting up in the Free Zone
  • All the costs, technicalities and logistics involved

The event also presented the benefits of partnering with DMCC and how we help and support Free Zone members by drawing on their resources to help shape and grow key industries, commodities and the future of trade.
