DUSIT THANI Abu Dhabi, the iconic five-star business hotel opening later this month has unveiled details about its highly specialised and flexible convention facilities that have been developed with the region’s rapidly-growing business events market in mind.

At the heart of the facilities is a spacious convention centre with a variety of function rooms that can host up to 2,000 people. This includes the 785 sq m Onyx Ballroom which is fully equipped to handle all types of events, conferences, exhibitions, meetings, banquets, weddings or social events.

The hotel offers a variety of meeting room facilities which can also be conveniently configured into different set-ups, ranging from 210 sq m to 365 sq m.

One of the highlights at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi is the glass-panelled Skydome – which is the ideal venue for car launches, exhibitions or similar events. The Skydome, which spans 2,000 sq m, covers one of the largest dedicated pre-function foyers in the region, across two floors with ample natural daylight.

“The business events sector is one of the fastest growing segments in the regional hospitality sector, particularly in Abu Dhabi. This is driven by the strategic geographical advantage that the capital enjoys coupled with its growing significance in the businesses landscape. We are able to offer a superb array of meeting facilities at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi that appeal to the entire spectrum of the business,” said Scott Mawhinney, general manager of the hotel.

“The innovative and unique design of the pre-function area with its impressive ‘Skydome’, the elegance and convenience of each function room together with state-of-art facilities and attentive service make Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi the perfect venue to host memorable events of every size and scale from major business conventions or product launches to more personal events like weddings or birthday parties,” he added.

Two boardrooms of 35 sq m each and a fully-equipped Business Centre complete the range of meeting facilities at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi. “The meeting rooms are ideal for training purposes, providing the perfect option for breakout sessions amidst the growing need for world-class venues to host trainings and smaller workshops,” added Mawhinney.

Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi also has a dedicated VIP private room, which offers adequate privacy for speakers or dignitaries or brides to prepare/ freshen up before a meeting or event. To reinforce the unique facilities, the hotel’s Events team has also developed a variety of packages to suit different customer needs and demands for events and weddings. The team is also collaborating with event planners to make Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi the preferred venue for all kinds of fashion shows and product launches in the UAE capital.
