And to exceed the milestone of 16 million tourists in 2020, Dubai has decided to bet on experience and discovery, to meet new expectations. Thus, more shows, more festivals and international events, but also new places of entertainment. To start the workforce review, here is a new address: "The Manor by JA". The establishment of 247 rooms, located near the site of Expo 2020 and Al Maktoum airport, meets all the criteria of Western and modern travelers.

Without forgetting sports competitions such as the prestigious Omega Dubai Desert Classic, or even the tennis open, there will be something for everyone and even artists during Art Dubai 2020.
At the cultural level, Dubai will not be outdone, since the Museum of the Future is expected for this year, even if the date of its opening is not specified.
