DUBAI – A new venue for live concerts and events in Dubai will open in 2019 in the City Walk district, developer Meraas announced.
Work on the Dubai Arena is in its final stages, and the venue is set to host 17,000 spectators when it opens to the public for events in the emirate.
“Every city is known for something – but few, if any, can compare to Dubai when it comes to leisure and entertainment experiences. Dubai Arena has been designed to enhance the city’s reputation as a destination for world-class events and hospitality and will transform the industry throughout the Middle East,” said Abdulla Al Habbai, Group Chairman at Meraas.
“We are confident that Dubai Arena will position the city on the international entertainment touring circuit and the audiences will have the opportunity to witness the world’s most talented performers and sporting events in the heart of Dubai,” Al Habbai added.
The Dubai Arena will also be able to accommodate sports events, such as tennis, basketball, boxing, volleyball and ice hockey. Festivals, exhibits, conferences and gala dinners can also be hosted there. GAD/Expat Media
