InterContinental Dubai Festival City

The Fifth Annual GPCA Forum will be held at the InterContinental Dubai Festival City.  Delegates will appreciate the proximity to Bastakiya, Dubai Museum and Al Mamzar Beach Park which are all located nearby. The hotel is connected to a shopping centre and marina, and has four luxurious restaurants. After a day of sessions, invite colleagues to join you at one of the many restaurants or take a walk to the marina and continue the networking you started during the conference.

Spa & Fitness


Spa InterContinental creates a quiet sanctuary from the bustle of the city with nature-inspired décor and Arabian subtleties. Personalized treatments infused with JUST PURE organic products, Natura Bissé skincare or Dubai’s own Shiffa brand promise visible results and genuine renewal. Notable spa features include:

  • Private treatment suites, each with a majestic view, changing area, shower and music and lighting adapted to personal preferences
  • Two VIP suites with private check-in and reception, infrared sauna, steam shower and Jacuzzi
  • Boutique
  • Ladies' and gentlemen's relaxation suites

The InterContinental also has a state-of-the-art 24 hour gymnasium complete with a free weights Kinesis wall, steam & sauna rooms, a 25 metre temperature controlled outdoor swimming pool and three spa pools all located on the leisure deck with uninterrupted creek and city skyline views.

Dining & Entertainment


Anise covers a lot of territory, not only in terms of size, but in its interesting choice of multi-ethnic foods and stunning forest-and-ice design theme. The ultra-modern décor is warmed by live cooking stations where you’ll have a chance to converse with the chefs and sample a variety of dishes before making your selections. Lovely views of the creek are an added bonus.

Bistro Madeleine

As you might expect from the name, only Bistro Madeleine could evoke the feel of a French brasserie in the heart of Dubai. From its delightful fare and freshly baked pastries and breads to the décor, you’ll think you’re in a traditional neighborhood café in the centre of Paris. Locals and travelers alike frequent for a leisurely lunch, afternoon tea or a quiet, casual dinner.

Al Sultan Brahim Beirut

When one of Lebanon’s most celebrated restaurant families decided to bring their famous Al Sultan Brahim Beirut to the region, no location but the InterContinental Dubai Festival City would do. The restaurant is known for the very finest Arabic seafood.

Reflets par Pierre Gagnaire

Three-Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire made his mark on the global stage when his Parisian restaurant was named third best in the world by Restaurant magazine. To the delight of Dubai locals and visitors, he brings his inimitable style to Reflets by Pierre Gagnaire, located on the hotel promenade. The upscale menu boasts specialties the chef calls “multisensory hits,” created by blending unexpected tastes and textures for a truly adventurous dining experience.


Internally connected to the world-class shopping centre with over 550 shops and 90 restaurants & cafés, connected to the luxury 100-berth marina via a beautifully landscaped waterfront promenade, and minutes away from two 18-hole championship golf courses
