DMCC was established in 2002 as a strategic initiative of the Dubai Government and is today home to 19,000 companies and counting.
Home to UK-based Deliveroo who opened its first kitchen incubator back in 2017 and has been joined by joined investors from a wide range of industries already present in this Free-Zone including US-based toy company Hasbro, financial giant American Express and home and personal care company Colgate-Palmolive- to name a few.
DMCC is the largest Free-Zone in this region that caters and licenses activities across various different sectors, from commodities, to energy, shipping and consultancy- as examples. Located in the heart of new Dubai in Jumeriah Lakes Towers and opposite the iconic Dubai Marina with close proximity to Jebel Ali Free Zone & Port and Dubai International Airport, it's centralised location makes it a popular choice for business owners.
DMCC is home to a community of over 70 commercial and residential towers and a community of over 100,000 people. The area is a thriving community full of restaurants, bars, hotels- there is even a 55,00 m2 community park which proves popular in the winter months!
In terms of office space, JLT has ample choice at affordable rates. If a physical office space is not something you require, DMCC also provide flexible, virtual office options most suited for those located outside of the UAE or who perhaps wish to work from home and coffee shops, at their leisure. There are also many external serviced office facilities available to explore, as well as freehold & leasehold offices for commercial and retail use.
Unlike other Free-Zones, DMCC provide regular networking events to members through industry events, sector specific clubs, and informative workshops, as well as frequent training on the latest developments in trade regulation & compliance standards within the region.
DMCC is also home to various trading platforms such as the Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX), Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), DMCC Pearl Exchange, DMCC Tea and Coffee Centers and DMCC Tradeflow.
With DMCC, you can choose from over 600 business activities which range across 20 sectors. These include Energy, Commodities, Gold and Diamonds, Technology, Construction, FMCG, Healthcare, Aviation, Shipping, Education and Media, as well as services such as Professional, Financial, Personal and Consultancy, to name a few.
DMCC Free-Zone has been voted as the "Global Free-Zone of the Year" by FDi Magazine for the fourth year running.
