Yes, for those attending their 5th or more Engage! event there will be an automatic reduction of $500 upon registration.
IS THERE A REDUCED RATE FOR ATTENDING MORE THAN ONE ENGAGE!20 EVENT?

WHERE DO I FLY INTO AND DOES THE REGISTRATION FEE INCLUDE AIRPORT TRANSFERS?
Dubai (DXB) is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. In fact, it is the world’s busiest airport by international traffic. Emirates is the main carrier with hundreds of direct flights arriving each day. Airport transfers are not included with your registration fee as there are hundreds of arrivals coming in around the clock. However, private transportation will be included from the Armani Hotel Dubai and the Address Hotel Downtown to all planned events within the program. The event is for guests of either Armani Hotel Dubai or the Address Hotel Downtown.
MY SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER/BUSINESS ASSOCIATE WILL BE JOINING ME IN DUBAI. HOW MAY I INCLUDE THEM IN THE EVENING EVENTS?
The entire program for Engage!20 Dubai is for registered attendees only.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL ATTEND ENGAGE!20 Dubai?
As with each of our internationally based events, we will have 250 attendees, speakers and partners. This event is our most diverse and global to date with over 30 countries (and counting!) represented. The program and content are being curated and will reflect who is joining us. Just as no two Engage! events are ever alike – this one promises to be incredibly special as we make the world of luxury weddings and events even smaller!
PERSPECTIVE ON ENGAGING IN DUBAI
We know that our own country and much of the world has come a long way in the past few years towards eliminating archaic and unjust laws and yet, there is still a long way to go, in many places all over the world.
When we started to consider Dubai as a destination, we had our own perceptions of restrictions on personal liberty in Dubai. It is for this reason that we visited ourselves, to better understand the land, its culture, and its people. We found Dubai to be an incredibly diverse, open, inclusive and tolerant society.
As with every Engage! event that we host, we are partnering, supporting and showcasing many talented creative businesses based both in Dubai and globally that are minority owned.
As part of our programming for the event, and through our Engage! Foundation efforts, we will be including conversations and support of initiatives relative to tolerance and tackling the difficult and complex issues that continue to face our global luxury wedding and event industry.
Just as we have never discriminated against anyone participating in an Engage!, we will not in turn discriminate against hosting our event in different regions that are willing to welcome and embrace our diverse global community.
We are immensely proud of what our industry represents, and how we celebrate love all over the world. Love will always conquer hate, and building bridges across the world has become one of our proudest missions at Engage!. We plan to continue to build a global wedding and event community that can affect change with the aim to help bring meaning and purpose to what we all do, together #BecauseOfEngage.
