Al Ain, May 3, 2011
Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec) has launched Phase 1 of its Al Ain Convention Centre development.
The inauguration by Sheikh Tahnoon Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in the Eastern Region of Abu Dhabi yesterday (May 2) boosts the available event space at the venue in Al Ain to more than 20,000 sq m (gross), a statement said.
It also includes the brand new 6,000 sq m Al Khabisi Hall 2, the 6,600 sq m Al Khabisi Hall 1 (that has previously existed onsite), and an 8,125 sq m outdoor event area.
Sheikh Tahnoon highlighted the significant impact the new facilities at the Al Ain Convention Centre would have in promoting the city of Al Ain as well as the wider eastern region of Abu Dhabi.
Adnec officials emphasised the company’s intention to develop Al Ain Convention Centre into a landmark project that would draw an expanded range of events to Al Ain including corporate events and concerts, besides the current portfolio of exhibitions and conferences.
The brand new Al Khabisi Hall 2 at Al Ain Convention Centre has been built in a unique architectural style that is in harmony with the city’s existing architecture, they aid.
It has new preparation and service kitchens and pre-function areas. Externally, the development includes a shaded colonnade, dancing areas, extensive landscaping with water features, and 256 car parking spaces. – TradeArabia News Service
