Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City

Dubai Internet City

Dubai Internet City is the largest information and communication technology business park in the Middle East and North Africa. Since its launch in 2000 it has grown to accommodate over 1,700 companies and hosts regional headquarters for many of the world’s leading companies, such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and more. It is located inside a free trade zone and is a strategic base for companies targeting emerging markets in a vast region, from the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent to African and CIS countries. The Internet City is located 25 kilometers south of downtown, close to the sea and Dubai Marina.

A Free Zone

In total, Dubai Internet City boasts 1.5 million square feet of office space and is home to an estimated 17,000 workers in 25 office structures. Even though Dubai’s history of extravagant projects such as the man-made palm tree islands has a certain appeal to companies, it is the free trade zone status that brings them here. They are offered special benefits, namely tax exemption and no import or export duties for fifty years, making it a lucrative location for small and large technology businesses alike.

Innovation in the City

Serving as the home of several of the world’s largest tech companies, there is an astonishing amount of knowledge gathered here. This has strongly influenced the local tech startup scene and Dubai Internet City is now considered an emerging innovation city, rich in networking opportunities for those working in the ICT industry.
