DUBAI - BWS Mea and HQWS are proud to announce the companies’ appointment as Executive Producers of the Dubai World Cup 2019 main event and of the HH Horse Racing Excellence Awards 2019.

After the experience of the main event for the Dubai World Cup 2017, the WS Corp group confirms its special relationship with two of the most important horseracing events in the world and its role of leadership in the United Arab Emirates live events market.
