Conference Venue

Powered by Heriot-Watt University, Dubai

IPCD is hosted by and held at Heriot-Watt University Dubai Campus (HWUDC), located at Dubai International Academic City. This is located off the Mohammed Bin Zayed Road / Al Ain Road interchange, down from the ‘Dubai Silicon Oasis’ community. Here is the link to the location on Google Maps: 

Heriot Watt University Campus Dubai

Please note that HWUDC is set in its own grounds, not in the main series of Academic City buildings. Please leave enough time by taxi or driving to find the HWUDC, as it can be a little confusing to navigate the Academic City area. Using GPS is recommended if possible. 

Parking is easy. The campus is surrounded by several hundred car parking spaces both within the campus (which will be available for delegates throughout the weekend), and street parking surrounding the campus. Entry and exit is through a single security gate in front of the main reception of the campus, just to the right of the main entry way.

Staff and student volunteers will direct you to the registration area. The conference agenda will take place around the campus, including our main auditorium as well as classroom spaces. Don’t worry, everything will be well sign-posted. Coffees and lunch will be served at the back foyer area of the auditorium, and lunch can be eaten in ample tables in our campus food court, which is directly underneath the auditorium.

There is also a small convenience shop on-campus, next to the auditorium. Do ask any of our volunteers if you are in need of anything. 

Prayer rooms are located in the campus buildings at the basement level. Again, feel free to ask any of our friendly volunteers for guidance.

For any queries about location prior to the event, please email 

A helpline mobile phone number will also be sent out to all delegates via email shortly before the event. The helpline will be live from the days leading up to and throughout the event. 


IPCD is currently in conversations with various local hotels. We will update you as deals become available.
