Destinations at last year's event

Muscat

Just an hour's flight from Dubai, Muscat offers a change of pace - think gorgeous beaches, beautiful architecture, and Arab hospitality. In 2016 the Oman Convention Centre opened, giving Muscat numerous theatres, conference rooms and four hotels with almost 1,000 rooms. The downtown business district is close to historical landmarks and ancient souks, and home to some grand MICE hotels, including Intercontinental and Grand Hyatt. This is your chance to experience the early days of a soon-to-be superstar of the MICE world.


Our Host Venues

The Forum will be hosted across two hotels, giving you an insight into some of the region's premier event venues.

JW Marriott Muscat

JW Marriott Muscat opened in 2017 within the Oman Convention Centre, and with 304 guest rooms, is set to be one of the most important hotels in the city for MICE events.

Crowne Plaza Muscat

Crowne Plaza Muscat has its own private beach, and has recently undergone an extensive renovation to make it a key player in the Muscat MICE offering.
