DUBAI – Property developer Emaar announced that New Year’s Eve fireworks and laser and light show will still be held to welcome 2021.
Emaar said that several preventive measures will be imposed, including social distancing and subjecting visitors to thermal camera checks.
The event will also be broadcast live from 8:30pm on mydubainewyear.com.
“This year we will deliver an even bigger gala event. The world is facing challenges, but we are united, and we will come out of this year stronger than ever before,” said Mohamed Alabbar, founder of Emaar.
“We want to send a message of hope, happiness and positivity into the world because that is the spirit of Dubai that we have learned from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who continues to inspire what we do with his extraordinary leadership. Here we reinvent ourselves, achieve the impossible and execute the unimaginable, and we are doing that again with Emaar NYE 2021,” he added. ICA/Expat Media
