#5.  Singapore

In at number 5 is Singapore. This is the perfect destination for business events. It’s a foodie’s paradise, with cutting-edge facilities and a wide range of entertainment options. There are also several smart, efficient and cost-saving green venues in Singapore, which makes planning a sustainable event a walk in the park.


#4.  London

At number 4 is good old London town. Super easy to get to, rich in culture and boasting genuine cosmopolitan variety, London has long been a world-class business and leisure destination, offering exceptional value for money. Where else could you teach delegates the perfect royal curtsey at Kensington Palace before transporting them back in history to explore life within the Tudor Court of King Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace.


#3.  Dubai

Number 3 on our list is Dubai, easily one of the leading destinations for meetings, incentives, conferences and events. With stunning venues, state of the art technology and a huge range of hotels to suit every budget, Dubai really does have it all to ensure your next big thing goes with a bang!


#2.  Liverpool

Our number 2 destination may surprise you… it’s Liverpool. This iconic city has recently been making waves with its potential to host outstanding business events. Since the opening of ACC Liverpool – the first purpose-built conference and exhibition centre in Europe – Liverpool has attracted corporate audiences from all over the world, who come here not just for the corporate possibilities, but for the undeniable culture this city is famous for.


#1.  Abu Dhabi

And taking the top spot on our list is fabulous Abu Dhabi. A diverse culture, incredible scenery and all year-round sunshine, Abu Dhabi is a place where anything is possible. A destination that encourages a thriving conference and events industry, Abu Dhabi boasts huge event spaces and wonderful accommodation that can be really flexible on price.
