2. Safety as a Meeting Priority

For the past six years, Abu Dhabi has been at the top of global data website Numbeo’s safety rankings. In addition to feeling at ease while enjoying the city, event attendees will feel extra safe when they arrive for exhibitions and conferences: Everyone must be vaccinated and present a negative PCR test to attend an in-person event in Abu Dhabi.

A recent independent survey revealed that 99 percent of event attendees said that they 'felt safe' at ADNEC due to the extensive COVID-19 safety measures in place at the venue.
