Why Visit CCW?

Serving the sector for more than 20 years, CCW unites mission-critical and business-critical end-users with manufacturers and suppliers for three days of inspiration, knowledge and connections.

At its heart CCW is a global networking hub, allowing visitors to view the latest technology and forge new business relationships with partners from across the globe.

With an exhibition of leading international brands, a conference programme led by experts at the forefront of critical communications, in-depth focus forums and Government Authorities fostering collaboration across international borders, CCW is the global event of the year.

CCW Returns next year on 14th - 16th May 2024 at Dubai World Trade Centre, United Arab Emirates.

The Dubai Government’s Secure network provider Nedaa will support CCW 2024 as Host Operator in collaboration with the Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism.

"Dubai has long been a beacon of innovation, constantly striving to stay ahead of the communications curve by bringing together the world's leading experts to share best practices and showcase the latest next-generation solutions.

This was at the forefront of our thinking during the selection process and, in hosting CCW next year, we have no doubts that Dubai will further elevate its position on the critical communications frontier and instigate further vital reform that benefits the industry and the world.”

Kevin Graham, CEO, TCCA.
