ADNEC's Board of Directors Tour ADNEC's Expansion Site

ADNEC's Board of Directors recently visited the construction site of ADNEC's new venue to inspect development progress and expressed satisfaction at the rapid pace of work by main contractor, Al Habtoor, and all involved subcontractors and hoped that they would continue demonstrating unwavering commitment.

The first phase of the venue, which is on schedule for completion by December 2006, is a key tenet of ADNEC's strategy to build a modern world class exhibition and conference centre catering to the booming commercial activity in the UAE capital.

Upon final completion, ADNEC's new venue will include 57, 000 square meters of gross exhibition floor space, a 21, 000 square meters visitor concourse and 7, 500 square meters of multi-purpose halls. It will also feature dedicated conference facilities for 1, 200 people, 30 high-specification meeting rooms and an 8-outlet food court.

As part of the development, the existing Sheikh Zayed Grandstand will be refurbished and linked to the new halls. The area surrounding the new centre is scheduled for immediate development and will feature hotels, serviced apartments for 2, 000 people, 17 office towers, a marina development and a retail zone with over 100 outlets.
