As Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) prepares for the opening of the much-anticipated World Diabetes Congress today, 4th December 2011, organizers are already looking ahead to a strong line up of international congresses for 2012 and 2013. As the region’s leading venue operator and event’s organizer, DWTC will host some of the world’s leading international congresses, including the ACI Financial Markets World Congress, WHF World Congress of Cardiology, TETRA World Congress, Conference of the Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (SICOT) and Swift International Banking Operations Seminar (SIBOS). Covering key sectors such as healthcare, technology and finance, and expected to attract more than 25,000 visitors, these high profile international congresses reinforce Dubai’s position as a leading global conference destination.

The IDF World Diabetes Congress is one of the most prominent health care events in the world, attracting the leading scientists, healthcare professionals, health ministers, and policy-makers from around the world. The Congress will run until 8th December, providing a global platform to share expert knowledge, and cutting edge research. Held in Dubai for the first time, the congress is organized by the International Diabetes Federation, and will welcome approximately 14,000 experts from around the world.

The World Diabetes Congress comes hot on the heels of Dubai’s first ever International Bar Association Conference, which successfully ran from 30th October – 4th November and was attended by a record-breaking number of more than 5,000 high-profile local and international law firms and legal representatives from 132 countries.

Continuing this success, key upcoming highlights for Dubai include the recent win of the 51st ACI Financial Markets World Congress which will run from 22nd – 24th March 2012 and forms part of the leading, global association of wholesale financial market professionals.  Counting 13,000 international members from more than 60 countries, the congress will welcome delegates from around the world. The World Heart Foundation's (WHF) next World Congress of Cardiology (WCC) will be held from 18th – 21st April 2012, with over 12,000 healthcare professionals expected to attend and share the latest scientific research on treatment and prevention in the field, while the 14th annual TETRA World Congress will be held from 14th – 17th May, expecting more than 2,000 global delegates from the international TETRA  community. The annual Conference of the Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (SICOT), running from 28th November – 1st December 2012 will meet with the aim to advance the science and art of orthopedics and traumatology at an international level, and to foster and develop teaching, research and education through the congress. More than 3,000 visitors are expected to attend SICOT in 2012. Concluding the line-up, the annual Swift International Banking Operations Seminar (SIBOS) will be held from 16th - 20th September 2013. Every year Sibos brings together influential leaders from financial institutions, market infrastructures, multinational corporations and technology partners, to do business and shape the future of the financial industry.  This year approximately 7,500 visitors are expected to attend.

“We are committed to bringing leading global forums to Dubai and are confident that the growing number of high-profile international congresses being hosted at our venue will achieve strong results in terms of both regional investment and next-generation innovation.” CEO of Dubai World Trade Centre, Helal Saeed Almarri, commented, “Dubai is firmly established as one of the world’s most attractive business destinations both geographically and strategically in terms of infrastructure and facilities, and we remain committed to providing the ideal global networking platform to host these prestigious events.”
 
The anticipated success of 2012 and 2013 follows a strong track record for DWTC, which has hosted eight international congresses in the last year alone, covering technology, healthcare, transportation and legal sectors.
