Transport Options


The Dubai Metro system is a reliable, air-conditioned service with stations near most of Dubai's city hotels. Dubai World Trade Centre has its own station located directly next to the venue on the Red Line.

Park & Ride

Car parking facilities are available on the Red Line at Rashidiya (2,700 Spaces) and Nakheel Harbour & Towers (3,000 spaces), and on the Green Line at Etisalat (3,000 car park spaces).


Taxis in Dubai are easy to find (especially outside hotels), low cost and will be able to drop you directly outside the venue. You can book a taxi directly through RTA on +971 (0) 4 208 08 08

Car Parking

There are very few parking options around the venue, so wherever possible we would strongly recommend using one of the above options to avoid long queues.
