The DWTC was planned as a venue to boost trade and economic activity in Dubai; a hub for regional and international commerce, exhibitions, and conferences. Over the years additional exhibition halls, conference spaces, and facilities have been added to accommodate the increasing demand for international events and conferences.
In January 2020 the Dubai Future District was launched, connecting The Dubai World Trade Center, Emirates Towers, and the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) to create a hub to develop the ‘new economy’ announced by HH Sheikh Mohammed in the 4 January 2020 Document.
In it he pledged to continue working on developing the emirate by welcoming national and international talents; building new partnerships that create job opportunities; providing financing to entrepreneurs and startups; adopting initiatives that facilitate the establishment of new companies; and the launch of innovative ideas to design the economy of the future.
The Dubai Future District is expected to be the Middle East’s biggest future economy-focused district, with a future economy research centre, incubators and accelerators, and an innovative space for future economy pioneers.
