Open for Business allows users to add their services to their profiles, making them easily found on a LinkedIn search.

The global feature launch took place in Dubai on Monday night under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council.

He said the selection of Dubai for the new service's global release is a "testament to the formidable business status of our city".
