As we’re all set to welcome the new year, it’s time to take a few minutes and reflect back on the highlights of the past year. 2018 witnessed some of the biggest MICE events and was overall a great year for the entire industry.

Some of the greatest events, specific to the Middle East and Africa (MEA), include:

  • Dubai FAM 2018 (Dubai, October 2018)
  • IAMRA International Conference on Medical Regulation (Dubai, October 2018)
  • the 38th GITEX Technology Week (Dubai, October 2018)
  • and the 57th ICCA Congress (Dubai, November 2018).

Dubai continues to host region’s most prominent events and is undoubtedly a smart MICE city that provides a seamless business experience. The city also preserved the No. 1 position on this year’s Cvent’s Top 10 Meeting Destinations in the Middle East & Africa and confirmed its strength and popularity in the international MICE market.

Let’s look at the quick recap of the top 10 cities that emerged in the Cvent’s 2018 list of top MICE destinations in the MEA region.
