You’ll also increase your awareness of Dubai’s calendar of exciting annual events and festivals, plus enjoy benefits such as invitations to Dubai tourism events in your region. The game also includes 25 videos, each one offering valuable information and insights about key attractions, areas and activities.

You’ll gain credibility too, once you’ve earned your Dubai Expert certificate and are allowed to use the Dubai Expert logo.
