Dubai South, the 145 sq km urban city development emerging in the emirate of Dubai, in partnership with The Big 5, Middle East’s leading construction event, announces the launch of the “How to Do Business in the UAE” Seminar on November 28, at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

Exhibitors and visitors participating at The Big 5 this year will be able to take part to the seminar for free.

The “How to Do Business in the UAE” Seminar will provide international companies information on navigating the complex regulatory framework to set up a business and win work in the UAE’s booming construction market.
