When it comes to, well, everything, the United Arab Emirates follows the bigger is better rule. For example, take the Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi. Not only does this regal property have a Las Vegas-worthy 1,100-seat auditorium and a grand ballroom for up to 2,400, your conference can even include an outdoor concert for 20,000 guests. Terraces, gardens and lawns can all be turned into event space on the 85-acre landscaped estate, and when you aren't hunkered down in one of the 42 meeting rooms, you can indulge in lavish spa treatments or dine in one of many restaurants, including venues serving Italian, Chinese and innovative Arabic brasserie cuisine. Rounding out the hotel's offerings are camel rides, a white sand beach and a luxury yacht marina.
