WFDB President Avi Paz thanked the DMCC for hosting the event in Dubai, saying, “Dubai is a fast-growing diamond trading centre and distribution hub, so holding a WFDB event at the home of the Dubai Diamond Exchange has been long coming," he said. The DDE is located in the Almas Tower along with 300 regional and international diamond and precious gems companies. Some of the Presidents' Meeting sessions will take place at the Almas Tower.
