Introduction to DTCM
The Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) was established in 1997. The main responsibility of the department is the promotion of Dubai’s commerce and tourism interests overseas. This is achieved through an integrated programme of worldwide events and activities. Some of these include: providing information to potential investors, public relations activities and advertising, participating in exhibitions, events and road shows, facilitating meetings with businesses in Dubai, visiting chambers of commerce, providing presentations, and taking trade missions to Dubai.
The commerce team at the DTCM aims to raise awareness of the potential business opportunities, and to provide knowledge and expertise on setting up business and trade for companies looking to expand or start new business ventures in Dubai.
Dubai is an attractive business destination because it enjoys a strategic location at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, and it offers many business opportunities. Dubai’s successful economic story is attributed to its highly developed and modern infrastructure, a comprehensive selection of free zones, tax benefits, and modern facilities offered by business centres and the exciting attractions of a tourist destination.
DTCM is planning to host a series of Business Seminars, with the objective of driving investment, manufacturing and trade into Dubai. DTCM wishes to achieve this objective by briefing and informing potential investors of the opportunities awaiting them. DTCM would like to target businesses that have no or little knowledge of Dubai and educate them by introducing them to a new experience and assisting them in expanding their businesses abroad. This would be beneficial for both the British and the Dubai economy.
