The Symposium, and the encompassing CTBUH 2018 Polycentric Cities Conference, will be held in the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, the world’s tallest all-hotel tower complex. Located in Business Bay on Sheikh Zayed Road, the twin-tower venue boasts stunning views over Downtown Dubai and the Dubai Water Canal, an array of exceptional amenities, and 5-star accommodations. Completed in 2012, the building design is inspired by the date tree, a recognized symbol of Arab culture. The podium provides a central hive of activity for the towers: with numerous restaurants and bars, an extensive business center with conference halls and meeting rooms, a banquet hall, spa and health club, as well as retail outlets, a swimming pool, and a gymnasium.

Very favorable, negotiated rates at the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai mean that you can stay in this prime location during the conference for highly competitive rates. In particular, as a non-profit organization, CTBUH has to guarantee a minimum number of rooms at the hotel, so delegates are urged to help reduce this risk to the Council by please staying at the conference hotel.
