For a number of years Dubai has been the home of several of kwiboo’s clients, and with the planned investment in Dubai’s tourist industry including the 2020 World EXPO. As a result we have identified the Dubai market as a good base to expand our operations inline with our passport to export strategy.
The UKTI’s Great Week event provided an opportunity for the senior team at kwiboo to undertake some detailed market research and learn about the forth coming initiatives in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The British Consulate in Dubai and the local UKTI team arranged a series of presentations and 1:1 dialogues with key stakeholders from a number of UKTI High Value Programmes that are in the planning process now.
Site Visits were also arranged to the cultural and mixed use developments of Saadiyat Island and Yas Island, both located in Abu Dhabi, as well as other theme park projects in Dubai. These included Dubai Parks & Resorts’ multi-billion dollar leisure and entertainment destination comprising: Motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks and Legoland Dubai.
