Abu Dhabi, the capital and the second largest city in the United Arab Emirates has now emerged as one of the country's finest tourist destinations because of its excellent infrastructure, growing economy and interesting attractions. Also it's a lot easier to get a visit visa to Abu Dhabi.

A city once known for its exhaustive coverage of conventions and exhibitions has gained importance for entertainment and shopping as well. Various areas and islands in Abu Dhabi are developed to promote tourism that includes the Corniche, the Yas Island and the Saadiyat Island, which allow visitors to explore the stunning Arabian Gulf views and wildfire reserves.


Kenes Group will obtain special accommodation rates for the 7th International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders in the Middle East's participants. Please visit the accommodation page periodically.


Sunshine and blue skies can be expected almost every day in Abu Dhabi. Normally, air-conditioning systems can be found in all buildings in the city. The period of October to March is comparatively cool. Dense fog can be also seen on some days. January and February are the coolest months of the year and rainfall is almost non-existent in the city.
