COBCOE is a partner for the 'Future Cities' trade delegation to Dubai in March 2017. We are now working with the British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates to bring delegates from the UK and Europe to the United Arab Emiraites (UAE).

This trade delegation is aimed at businesses in the following sectors:

  • Property development
  • Urban planning
  • Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Supporting industries such as interior design

The 'Future cities delegation will allow participants to learn about the futuristic concepts being brought to life in the UAE. The cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi are leading the world in urban development, engineering, urban development, futuristic visitor attractions and green technology.

European expertise, skills, talent and vision are needed now to make planned projects a reality in future. Patnering in this specialist trade delegation is the first of a number of initiatives where we are acting as a catalyst for international business by enabling European specialists to find opportunities in international markets.

Importantly, this trade delegation is focused on individual delegates' needs. The organisers will tailor aspects of the schedule and pre-arranged meetings to ensure that every delegate is able to make contact with companies that are useful to their businesses.

Delegates are responsible for their own travel to Dubai. The trade mission includes three nights' accommodation at the W Hotel Dubai Al Habtoor, a futuristic five star hotel, with all meals and transfer arrangements included at a total cost of  £1,571 + VAT per delegate.
