Grand Final Gala Ceremony 2023

1 December 2023 – Dubai, UAE

Grand Final


Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The sun-kissed emirate is the Cinderella story of the travel industry, having exploded from a sleepy fishing village into a futuristic metropolis.

This dazzling desert kingdom is home the world’s tallest building – the 828m tall Burj Khalifa – as well as iconic modern structures such as the Dubai Opera House. Yet scratch beneath the shiny surface and you'll find another side to the ‘city of gold’, including historical sites such as Bastakia and Dubai Creek. Here visitors can watch dhows (traditional Arab sailing boats) weave across the water as they have done for centuries.

Factor in sandy beaches, intriguing deserts, luxurious hotels and super-sized shopping malls like the Dubai Mall that’s also home to an aquarium and Olympic sized ice rink – and visitors have a high end, safe destination in which to boost their Vitamin D.
