Global City finds new home in Abu Dhabi

Global City, a two-day event bringing together some of the world’s most important cities, was held in the UAE capital for the first time in April.


The event, organised by Reed Exhibitions Middle East, is designed as a knowledge gathering, networking and business platform dedicated to mayors, urban planners, decision-makers and leaders. Reed launched the event in 2005 in Cannes, France, and the second and third editions were held in Lyon in 2006 and 2007. The organisers decided to move Global City to Abu Dhabi this year in recognition of the capital’s inspiring record in the event’s key themes of sustainability, progress and strategy.


H.E. Mohamed Rashed Al Hameli, senior advisor to the Abu Dhabi Council for Economic Development (ADCED), said that Global City had “found its natural home”.


“Abu Dhabi is evolving steadily into a global city in spirit and substance to emerge as a truly unique place,” he told delegates. “In this journey, we are grateful for the opportunity to leverage the best talent, resources and ideas that will be pooled together during Global City.”


The event, which took place at the Emirates Palace Hotel, welcomed more than 100 leading international experts as speakers and forum participants, with leaders from 40 world cities in attendance.
