It is our pleasure to offer you several outstanding patronage and exhibition opportunities together with promotional business development benefits at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018 which will be held 9-13 December 2018 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Meaning 'Land of the Gazelle' in Arabic, Abu Dhabi was founded when a young antelope led a wandering tribe to fresh water, on an island with no more than 300 palm ('barasti') huts, a few coral buildings and the Ruler's fort. This simple island settlement has since been transformed into the modern, cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi and the high-rise capital of the United Arab Emirates.

IEEE GLOBECOM, the premier flagship conference of the IEEE Communications Society, has been held annually since 1957. In 2018, IEEE GLOBECOM is expected to have:
