WOW Middle East WOW Awards Middle East 2019 International LIVE Events Association (ILEA) Dubai Tourism Coca-Cola Arena

Since 2009, the WOW Awards have been the epitome of celebrating excellence in the larger event industry. With International LIVE Events Association (ILEA - Middle-East Chapter) as a strategic partner, the legacy of WOW has expanded with a dedicated edition for the Middle-East’s event industry hosted in the eventful city Dubai.

As its customary and as part of the ceremony, beyond the competitive awards, the institution of WOW presents ‘special acknowledgments’ to select entities that have made an outstanding contribution to the Event industry of the region. In keeping with this tradition and in partnership with ILEA, The WOW Visionary Special Honour will be presented to the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, in acknowledgement of its achievements in building one of the World’s most successful event economies in Dubai. Dubai has played a benchmarking role in this region as the most attractive tourist destination, primarily due to the draw of very successful and engaging cultural and recreational events and festivals, in addition to its incomparable facilities and features to host global events.

Iconic festivals like the Dubai Shopping Festival, Dubai Food Festival, Dubai World Cup, Dubai Jazz Festival, Art Dubai, Dubai Design Week and Dubai Rugby Sevens are just a few examples of how the destination has ensured every interest is catered to and presented in the most exciting formats, leaving visitors spoilt for choice and ensuring steady and successful tourism into this mega-city. This effort is only more validated with Dubai being the host destination for the World Expo in 2020.

A second Special Honour, titled WOW Milestone, will be presented to the Coca Cola Arena, in acknowledgement of its role as a Landmark Development contributing tremendously to the event and entertainment industry of the region, and most specifically Dubai.

The WOW Awards ME 2019 ceremony and gala, held on September 25 at the Palazzo Versace Hotel, Dubai, is 'by invite only' to entrants and guests. Further details on the Schedule and Access, can be seen here: For any further queries:

The WOW Awards Advisory Board along with ILEA - ME, will extend the WOW Visionary to DTCM and the WOW Milestone to the Coca Cola Arena at the award ceremony on September 25.
