Who Can Attend Startup Weekend Dubai

Startup Weekend is not an open event. Attendees HAVE to pay to attend. We do have speakers, coaches and judges attending at specified times as well as media that will be dropping in throughout the weekend to see the progress of the teams, but we will not and do not allow drop-ins to the event.

We say this because each event we turn away people that show up just looking to “network” or see where the teams are. This is not a networking event so please do not make us have to turn you away.

With that being said, visitors are only allowed to attend the pitches on the last day.
