EPEX Dubai Business Events

The Experiential Planner Expo (EPEX) is set to take place in Dubai this year, bringing together key players in the events and wedding industry from around the world. The event, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt, Dubai from 20-22 September, will provide an opportunity for international events planners and experts to share insights and meet global venues, destinations, and events suppliers.

EPEX, the MICE and wedding platform in the Middle East, is expected to attract over 200 event planners and travel experts from Africa, India, and the Middle East including Israeli outbound travel professionals. The event will feature, B2B meetings, leadership sessions from industry leaders, panel discussions, and networking opportunities over the 3 days.

"EPEX's move from India to Dubai in 2021 has been a pivotal milestone. Partners now access a diverse audience from key source markets, including the India, Middle East and Africa. Strategic alliances with global hospitality brands and regional tourism boards has gained momentum, standing testament to the growing appetite within the business events and weddings industry. Kudos to Dubai's Department of Economy and Tourism, our destination partner, for fostering such a catalytic environment to do events of any kind, in the city and the region" said Ibrahim "Eddie" Bashir, Show Director, Experiential Planner Expo.

In a special debut, EPEX will unveil an open vote recognition platform “EPTop50”, to celebrate the top 50 venues of the Middle East with inputs from event planners driving much of the business in the region. The initiative will continue to amplify the narrative of Dubai as a diverse destination for corporate and social events.

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment said. “Dubai is committed to providing not only a world-class destination for business events, but also a leading platform for planners and meetings professionals to drive the wider industry forward. As our offerings in Dubai continue to evolve, encompassing new hotels, venues and attractions, hosting EPEX for the third year in a row provides us with an opportunity to showcase Dubai to buyers from key target markets, and for stakeholders within our own business events ecosystem to engage with them in a meaningful way. We look forward to welcoming EPEX delegates to Dubai and inviting them to be part of our tourism and economic growth story.”

Dubai is an ideal location for the event with dozens of local hotels, venues, and event suppliers across the city participating including Emaar Hospitality, a homegrown hotel chain, coming on-board as Gold Partners. The city is known for its luxurious hotels, world-class infrastructure, and rich cultural heritage. It is also a hub for international travel, with strategic air connections from destinations around the world, making it the ideal destination to host EPEX.

The B2B event in its 3rd consecutive year is being organized in partnership with Dubai Business Events, the city’s official convention bureau and part of the Department of Economy and Tourism, to establish Dubai as a premier business event destination.
