Dubai Bid Alliance Offers 20,000 Rooms

The Dubai Bid Alliance (DBA) has announced that the number of hotel rooms in the program has increased by one hundred percent in one year, with Dubai hotels confirming their participation with 20,000 rooms across a variety of star ratings.

Inclusion of these rooms in the program means flexible terms and held rates for congress planners who are planning large events in Dubai.

Launched two years ago under the initiative of the Dubai Convention Bureau and utilized in more than 30 congress bids, the DBA was formed to offer a comprehensive package of products and partners to prospective congress event organizers.

Founding DBA committee members include the Dubai Convention Bureau, Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Emirates Airline, and a variety of other congress stakeholders based in Dubai.

Jerad Bachar, Director of the Dubai Convention Bureau said, “The Dubai Bid Alliance continues to grow through additional alliance partners. The program gives us a chance to deliver a strong, unified message to large-scale congress organizers. Dubai has been ideally constructed to host these types of events. Beyond the obvious infrastructure, the DBA helps deliver the message that Dubai is qualified to hold these events with ease and efficiency.”
