Getting to Dubai Motor Show 

The Dubai International Motor Show is being held at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). The Dubai World Trade Centre is centrally located within the business hub of Dubai amidst the city's iconic landmarks. 


 

Dubai offers traditional Arabic hospitality coupled with a world-class service industry, while an excellent infrastructure facilitates easy transport around the city.

If you’re travelling by car, there is direct access from the city’s main highway and commercial skyscraper corridor, Sheikh Zayed Road - giving you a direct gateway to all areas of Dubai and the wider UAE. Within the DWTC complex, take advantage of our extensive multi-storey parking facilities for around 5,000 cars.

The DWTC complex is also on the main public transport bus and metro route, with our own dedicated metro station - 'World Trade Centre Station'. Whichever way you choose to reach us, it could not be simpler.

We work closely with the authorities to manage major event traffic by road and metro and ensure seamless access for visitors with minimum interruption to traffic flow. We also provide dedicated VIP and valet parking at our main entrance gates.
