Each autumn, Dubai is teeming with various events in all fields, gathering thousands of specialists and enthusiasts all over the world. It becomes not only a platform for creative and professional development but also an orienteer for future directions. Thus, if you are considering how to spend your time in the upcoming months, here are the five best events you should totally visit.
This annual event will be of interest to anyone involved in the fashion world and interested in current trends. Visit the Dubai Design District, where enthusiasts and designers will gather to discuss the latest trends in the Middle East. From 2013 to today, Fashion Forward Dubai is an opportunity to introduce yourself to new Middle Eastern design talents, as well as a significant event for reputable designers in the region.
The main feature of this year’s event will be an active opportunity to purchase the demonstrated collections on digital and physical platforms. Come and watch the most luxury designer items and accessories in the region, as well as exclusive lines of world brands. The event will be held on October 30 – November 2, so be sure to register to attend the show.
It is not a secret for all lovers of creativity and design that the Dubai Design Week is the most significant creative festival in the region. Every November, starting from 2015, hundreds of presentations, seminars, events, and exhibitions are held in various locations of the city of Dubai, the design capital of the Middle East. At the same time, the festival covers multiple aspects of the art of design - this includes architecture, interior, furniture, and graphic design.
It is important not to miss the key events of the festival. One of them is Downtown Design - a regional design exhibition, in which you can observe a limited edition of design solutions of various brands. Also, there will be a Global Grad Show with more than 100 leading universities participating.
The most important and highlighted event is Abwab. Abwab, which means doors in Arabic, really opens up opportunities for regional talents (North Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East).
Do not miss this large-scale event, which will be held on November 11-16. Keep track of all the activities using a special Dubai Design Week application that will guide you through this festival.
If you are interested in a dynamic luxury market of the Middle East and share a passion for exclusive products, we invite you to visit the International Jewelry Exhibition this fall. It presents the latest news and collections of watches and jewelry from the prestigious world-known brand names. Every year this event amazes by the number of exhibits, sophisticated atmosphere, and pleases visitors with a perfect choice. You will have the opportunity to attend seminars and training dedicated to the latest trends in jewelry manufacturing.
This event essentially combines three large and different exhibitions in the city: Areeq Dubai, Jewelry Collections Dubai, and Jewelry Trade Dubai. You have the opportunity to visit them on November 13-16.
If your passion is not in jewelry but the speed and unique designs of cars, you can visit a place where world brands are gathering to show the latest information on upcoming car launches in the global market.
An exclusive event attracts more than 100,000 guests from all over the world twice a year. It has long been a must-see gathering among global car brands. This year the event will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center on November 12-16. Get the latest news about the world of cars and the aerospace by visiting this year's exhibition.
If your goal this fall is to avoid any hustle and focus on caring for your body and spirit, Dubai has prepared a weekly yoga program and wellness treatments for you. YogaFest gives you the opportunity to achieve peace and mindfulness in the very center of Dubai, Internet City.
To attend outdoor activities, be sure to bring a yoga mat with you. If you don’t have one, do not worry as you can rent it on the spot. The event will be held on November 21-23.
