Sheik Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum of Dubai had a clear forward minded vision which envisaged Dubai developing into a commercial hub as well as economic powerhouse on par with certain Western cities. In keeping with this vision the Sheikh set about creating the largest multipurpose trade complex within the region.

Started in 1974, the Dubai Trade Centre was completed in 1979. The 39 storey building was the focal point of what is now known as Dubai's stunning skyscraper pathway. This tower no longer stands alone and is instead joined by exhibition halls, hotels and service apartments along the Sheikh Zayed Road. The tower itself is home to the business premises of some of the leading business names and brands in today's world market such as General Motors, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, and Federal Express as well as to the consulates of several countries.

The Trade Centre is constantly being updated and modified and as a result today boasts of an extensive International Convention and Exhibition Centre which provides one of the largest spaces in the region. The Trade Centre Plaza provides space for dining and coffee options not to mention a range of retail therapy options as well as the Trade Centre Arena which is a top of the range exhibition space with multipurpose facilities. The arena with its 14 meter high ceiling and 10,000 guest capacities is ideal for concerts, grand scale weddings and other international exhibitions.

The penthouse, as it were, of the Trade Centre tower is the home of the World Trade Club – which is one of the most prominent and influential business clubs in the state.

Further developments are ongoing yet completion is expected in the near future. For business travellers, a closer look at the epitome of Commercial Dubai will not be a loss as opportunities are endless.

For the interested traveller, the scene of the starting point of Dubai's entry into the competitive economic world will be of importance. If such travellers seek a Business hotel Dubai from which to base themselves then the Grand Millennium Dubai will prove ideal given its accolade as one of the best Dubai luxury hotels.
