Dubai’s continued evolution into an international business hub was under the spotlight today at IMEX 2014, the worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings and events, which is taking
place May 20-22 in Frankfurt, Germany. Among the key developments highlighted by the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) was the recently launched Dubai
Association Centre (DAC).

Brands and departments within the DTCM portfolio include Dubai Convention and Events Bureau, Dubai Calendar, and Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (formerly known as Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment). In addition to its headquarters in Dubai, DTCM operates 20 offices worldwide.
