About WCCE
Inclusively Creative
Cultivating the Future

The first World Conference on Creative Economy (WCCE) hosted in Indonesia in 2018, offered a forum for policymakers and industry players to exchange ideas, resolve challenges and identify opportunities within the creative economy. This year, the UAE hosts the second World Conference on Creative Economy 2021 with the world’s thought leaders, aspiring creatives and innovators at EXPO 2020 Dubai.

Over three days, a large global community of entrepreneurs, creatives and policymakers will come together in person and virtually, where they will be joined by world-leading speakers, thinkers and policymakers. This is the place to collaboratively and practically engage with the future of the creative economy, helping to build it on inclusive, responsible, and human-first foundations.

WCCE 2021 will see the key players and game changers from around the world come together in the UAE on a dynamic platform to engage with one another and take concrete steps towards a more sustainable creative economy. As the pace of innovation and technological disruption continues to accelerate, WCCE 2021 is a unique forum and an ideal opportunity to share knowledge, analyse trends and debate ideas.

We welcome you to join the conversation at WCCE 2021!



Six themes. Countless ideas. One event.

The WCCE 2021 programme will be organised around six broad themes that will collectively define the future of the global creative economy.
