Your arrival at Art Dubai

Groups need to arrive (as per assigned visit time upon registration) at the Souk Madinat Entrance, by taking the right at the first roundabout for drop-off at the Madinat Jumeirah Conference Centre, the entrance for student groups at the premise of the fair.


The main chaperone can proceed to the main welcome desk and collect entry badges prepared for the group upon registration. The main chaperone will need to leave a valid ID at the welcome desk to collect entry badges. This can be collected at the end of the visit once the entry badges have been returned to the main desk.


An Art Dubai representative will welcome you to the fair. We encourage printing a copy of our electronic education guide to navigate the fair with your group.
