The 2017 edition of our annual Living in Dubai event was a huge success this year, with up to 1000 people joining us throughout the day to discover the ins-and-outs of living and working in Dubai. 

From 10am onwards, visitors of all ages, expat experiences and backgrounds joined us at The Address Dubai Marina for a day filled with useful information, services, products and advice about life in the emirate.

Part of this year's event was the new 'Working in Dubai' segment, which provided visitors on the day the opportunity to discuss specialists from different industries in Dubai. After all, a huge part of life here for any expatriate is work.

As well as our speaker sessions, our Living in Dubai fair brought to the ExpatWoman.com website to life, as visitors had the opportunity to find the answers to all of the questions they had about living in Dubai - both from our expert team, and from the number of service providers and industry experts that participated.

We'd like to say a huge, special thank you to The Arabic Language Centre's Shireen Sinno, Sallyann Della Casa from GLEAC, Linda Flanagan from The British Council and WLP Success' Donna Needs who were our expert speakers throughout the day.

Plus, thank you to the many other vendors and crafters who joined us at this year's event - without you, none of it would be possible.

If you joined us on the day, you might have been ex-papped by our photographers! Take a look and feel free to share them with your friends and family.
