The Dubai Convention and Events Bureau (DCEB), a division of the Department of Commerce and Tourism Marketing (DTCM), is welcoming the first group of a total 14,500 incentive delegates from Nu Skin Enterprises, China for a training programme to last until April 17.

The delegation, which represents the largest corporate incentive group in UAE history, is arriving in seven waves, with one wave averaging around 2,000 people arriving every day between Sunday, April 6, and Saturday, April 12.

The last wave will depart the UAE on April 17, and each wave will be in the UAE for five days.

Nu Skin chose to visit Dubai because of its incentive offer, including its landmarks, accommodation, transport infrastructure, events and activities.

Each group will experience an almost identical tour programme which will take them to see the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, Al Bastakiya, Dubai Creek and the Palm Jumeirah along with other locations in addition to select areas of interest around Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

DCEB won the bid for Dubai to host the Nu Skin incentive mega-group in January 2013, having competed against Macau, Seoul in South Korea and Singapore.
