Safe Events

Business With Confidence

The ADNEC Group is committed to the safety and wellbeing of everyone who visits our venues. We are excited to be welcoming the world back to ADNEC and have worked to ensure that event organisers have everything that they need to be able to plan for safe events and are equipped with the tools they might need to communicate safety measures effectively with their exhibitors, visitors and delegates.

Our approach is in line with the latest guidance issued by Department of Culture & Tourism in Abu Dhabi, and has been informed by international event industry best practice issued by ICCA, AIPC and UFI. Furthermore, our Business with Confidence guidelines reference Abu Dhabi Governmental Health and Safety guidelines as well as those issued by the World Health Organization and is updated continuously.
