Free zones and new commercial developments are appearing across Dubai more and more, growing and expanding at a rate that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Amidst all the confusion and construction, some of Dubai’s most prominent and successful business locations can sometimes be overlooked.
The Business Village (BV) is located away from the madness that is much of New Dubai. It is situated near Deira’s famous landmark, the Clock Tower. Hosting approximately 1 million square feet of commercial space, consisting of hundreds of office properties within, BV was established as part of the Dubai SME initiative.
The Department of Economic Development (DED) created Dubai SME in 2002 in order to support the growth of small and medium enterprises and to promote innovation and leadership across all sectors and within all industries. This focus and support for SMEs makes BV a singularly ideal location for those looking to start a new business in the emirate. It offers easy access to principal business partners, finance and funding groups and government entities.
BV’s location is ideal for both new businesses and those looking to expand or relocate because present within or near its premises are the offices of some of the most influential organizations in the emirate like government agencies DED, Foreign Investment Office, Dubai Export Development Cooperation, Dubai Health Authority, UAE National Olympic Committee and Dubai SME itself.
An equally popular location for conferences and meetings, the Business Village Conference Centre can easily and professionally accommodate up to 25 delegates and offers a range of venue packages, including full day or and half day, with or without catering, across different contract lengths.
BV has easy access to the Dubai Metro (a free shuttle bus service is provided), retail outlets and even health club facilities for both ladies and gents.
