Gateway's Abu Dhabi Events, Conference & Exhibition Guide 2021

17th January 2021

Gateway Group has compiled its annual guide for business events, conferences and exhibitions in Abu Dhabi. Due to the global pandemic, the list is streamlined in comparison to previous years and some of the events are virtual. In light of the ever changing regulations and updates due to COVID, we suggest this article is used for guidance purposes only and attendance / bookings are checked directly with the event organisers.


If you are planning to attend or even exhibit in any of the conferences and exhibitions in Abu Dhabi this year, Gateway's annual Abu Dhabi Events, Conference & Exhibition Guide 2021 will help you to identify the most relevant events for you business.


Attending exhibitions and events is a great way to start learning about the Abu Dhabi market, identifying who the key players are in your sector, as well as your local competitors, trends, opportunities and meeting with potential clients and business partners.


If you decide there are opportunities for your business in Abu Dhabi, then its worth knowing in advance that to do business here you will most likely need to set up a business in Abu Dhabi. Registering a business in Abu Dhabi is likely to be quite different to regulations and requirements for starting a business in your home jurisdiction, so just being aware of what your obligations might be in advance will ensure that you have a head start as you build up local relationships and start negotiating for potential pieces of business - Gateway's tips for expanding your business into Abu Dhabi will be really helpful.
