Dubai: Your Team’s Dream Come True

Posted On: August 9, 2017

Dubai surpasses anything a person could dream up.

Where else could you snowboard in the morning, ride a camel on the beach in the afternoon and watch the sunset from the world’s tallest building? Only in Dubai. This oasis on the Persian Gulf is home to nearly 3 million people and welcomed nearly 15 million visitors in 2016.

The team at Docherty Incentives & Meetings plan spectacular travel incentive programs for teams to experience the many indulgences Dubai offers the world. Your team, too, can see their dreams realized in Dubai.

Seeing is Believing

When your group arrives in Dubai, they’ll see a futuristic city that seems to have grown out of the desert. Bordered by Oman to the south and Qatar to the west, Dubai is one of seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It was once home to cattle herders, fisherman and pearl divers—all before oil was discovered in the 1960s. Dubai is now known as a trade hub and an exciting tourist destination, so the country is careful to make sure the emirate is safe for travelers.

In this 1,500-square mile emirate, there are nearly 700 hotels at different price points, which gives our team plenty of options for securing the best stay for your team’s budget. Dubai is an incredible place for groups especially because of the team-building and experiential outings available.  

Top 10 “Best Of” Dubai:

  1. Burj Khalifa: At 828 meters high, this building is the tallest structure in the world. You can get spectacular views of the Persian Gulf from the observation deck, the lounge or the restaurant.
  2. Jumeirah Mosque: What better way to begin to understand a culture than to visit a house of worship? Be advised that dress code is strictly modest: long sleeves and long pants for men or skirts and a head scarf for women.
  3. Jumeirah Beach: This picturesque stretch of sand has both public and private beaches, but the price of admission is worth it to gaze out at The World Islands, an artificial archipelago just off the coast.
  4. Burj Al Arab: A hotel on Jumeirah Beach, this stunning structure looks like a ship about to sail off into the gulf and offers amazing views from the rooftop bar.
  5. The Dubai Mall: In addition to world-class shopping, this mall boasts the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.
  6. Ski Dubai: At the Mall of the Emirates, you can ski and snowboard indoors. Only in Dubai.
  7. Wild Wadi Waterpark: This park has 30 water rides, making it the perfect place to cool off from the desert heat.
  8. The Gold Souk: This souk, or bazaar, has more bling than your team will be able to lug home, but it’s a dazzling display of gold jewelry.
  9. Dubai Museum: Learn about the history of this desert jewel before it became known for its oil and as a tourism destination.
  10. Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve: With everything from driving through the dunes (with a guide) to archery, this destination reminds you that Dubai is surrounded by a gorgeous desert.
