Dubai CommerCity, the first and leading free zone dedicated exclusively to e-commerce in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and a joint venture between the Dubai Integrated Economic Zones Authority (DIEZ) and Wasl Properties, has announced its participation in this year’s Expand North Star, the world’s largest event for startups and investors, taking place between 15-18 October 2023 at Dubai Harbour.
Dubai CommerCity’s participation at this event, which is set to host startups from over 100 countries and more than 1,000 investors with a combined total of over US$ 1tn under management to Dubai, which is rapidly emerging as the heart of the world’s digital economy, comes as part of its ambition to connect with some of the world’s most innovative start-ups and showcase its cutting-edge infrastructure and state-of-the-art facilities, each tailored to meet the requirements of digital commerce businesses, according to a press communique.
Furthermore, the free zone’s participation aligns with its ongoing efforts to advance digital commerce in the region and its commitment to achieving the goals of the Dubai Economic Agenda (D33), which aims to drive the growth of Dubai’s digital economy over the next ten years.
