Dubai World Trade Centre
Dubai World Trade Centre’s (DWTC) Sheikh Rashid halls are located between the Dubai Metro station and the existing exhibition halls on a site that was previously used as a car park. The structure covers a built-up area of around 40,000m2, with internal dimensions of 325mx96m. The average height of the building is 15m and the internal space can be partitioned to provide a series of smaller halls as required for individual events.
