Tips to Cabsat


Avoid paid parking

Sure, there are lots of paid parking in Dubai World Trade Centre. But if you get up and arrive at the venue early, you can snag yourself one of the premium (Read: FREE) parking slots at the DWTC Car Park (https://goo.gl/maps/Nj5BNeWjaP42). Just make sure you head there early as it gets filled up pretty quickly. Think about it - one whole day’s parking fee is worth a week’s worth of coffee. Manage your priorities well and get your caffeine fix.

Other ways to avoid paid parking is to take public transportation. Taxis, Uber and Careem are plentiful. And of course, you can always take the Red Line of Dubai Metro and get off at the "World Trade Centre Station”.

After reaching the World Trade Centre safely, the first thing you should do is head to Hall 2, Stand B2-10 and meet with us. We promise we’ll be there for your first thing in the morning.

Time to Visit

Time to Visit

The Show is open to visitors anytime between 10:00 and 18:00. I have observed that if you wish to avoid the crowds, it is best to arrive first thing in the morning at 10:00, before the crowd starts surging in from around 11:30 onwards. Crowds once again taper off in the afternoon, but I still think visiting in the morning is the best option.

Having said that, our team at our stand in Hall 2, Stand B2-10 is available to engage with you any time of the day. You can even book an exclusive session with us by registering below.



As there are a lot of things to see and potentially a large number of people to meet, we recommend heading to the show on a full stomach. However, there is nothing to worry about as the venue is surrounded by restaurants and cafes. The variety is good. Salads Station offers some healthy options, Azzurro Pizzeria serves up some delicious pizzzas, Burger Fuel definitely produces quality burgers, and the roving cafeterias, as we call it, makes coffee, tea and sandwiches accessible from inside the exhibition area.

However, if you are looking for something to break the monotony of gourmet, don’t mind eating something less fancy, and is ok with a brief walk, you may find the Zoom convenience store at the ground level of the nearby Dubai World Trade Metro Station appealing every now and then. Try their well-priced tasty hotdogs and use the spare change to get donuts for dessert.
