The conference will be inaugurated by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. Assembly Speaker K R Suresh Reddy and several state and union ministers are expected to attend.
The conference will witness seminars and workshops on health tourism, biotechnology and infrastructure and serve as a platform for entrepreneurs to interact with their counterparts in Dubai on business opportunities. It will also host several cultural events.
To a question, Mr Naidu said about 3,000 delegates from all over the world were expected for the conference.
The WTF officials said efforts will be taken to promote Telugu in the Middle East as many Telugus were facing difficulty in the absence of the language in school curriculum.
