Dubai is known for its year-round sunshine, fascinating deserts, endless beaches, luxurious hotels and shopping malls, heritage attractions and a thriving business community. The local Emirati people offer warm hospitality and are welcoming and generous to visitors, in turn receiving millions of leisure and business visitors each year from around the world.

Being a dominant business hub, most companies around the world hold an office in Dubai or operate in Dubai in some way. In addition, its environment of excellence in services and offering everything in one’s desire influences new companies to open every day to cater to the population.
