Registrations are now open for the What's On Dubai Awards 2024
The region’s favourite restaurant, leisure and entertainment awards are back…
Dubai is a city that has it all: incredible restaurants, unmissable events, fabulous attractions, indulgent leisure spots… which is why each year we champion the very best of them at the What’s On Dubai Awards. The annual extravaganza returns for 2024, and as the largest food and entertainment industry awards in the city, and the only awards voted for by the public, puts the finest establishments firmly in the spotlight
The What’s On Dubai Awards attracts hundreds of entrees from outlets and individuals hoping to take home a coveted trophy. Attended by the crème de la crème of the country’s hospitality and entertainment professionals, it is the industry’s most glamorous night of the year.
Registrations for the awards are now open, so if you are a F&B professional, or know of a venue or event that you want to sign up, all outlets are encouraged to sign up soon, ahead of the voting period. You can register now here.
Voting opens on December 1, 2023 and if you want your venue to be in with the best chance of winning, you’ll need to register ASAP. Voting will remain open until the end of January, 2024. We’ll be announcing the shortlist in February 2024 so you’ll then have just over two months to get your votes in.
Awards fall under five categories: Restaurants over Dhs400, Restaurants under Dhs400, food concepts, entertainment, and leisure. The What’s On team casts their judgement over six Editor’s Choice Awards in Dubai, and the rest is all up to the general public.
What’s new for 2024?
In the Editor’s Choice Awards, the team are introducing a Culinary Experience of the Year category, an ode to the string of new supper clubs and tasting menu experiences now available across the city’s gourmet and independent food scene.
For registration categories, you’ll now find brunch divided into buffet and a la carte, as we recognise the different experiential formats.
This year we’re also adding a Favourite Breakfast category to salute the first meal of the day, as well as a Favourite Staycation category for the growing hotel scene in the Northern Emirates.
When is the What’s On Dubai Awards 2024?
The glitzy award ceremony will take place in Dubai in Q1, 2024, where we will crown the very best in the region across dining, entertainment and leisure.
