Published on : Thursday, April 4, 2019

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has toured Dubai Arena before its opening.


Dubai’s new multi-purpose venue developed by Meraas at City Walk is the largest indoor arena of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa region.


Sheikh Mohammed said that Dubai Arena would strengthen Dubai’s status in the tourism and family entertainment sector.


The development of the venue is aligned with the objectives outlined in Dubai’s Tourism Vision 2020 and the Dubai Tourism Strategy that aims to attract 25 million tourists a year by 2025.


The Dubai Arena has the capacity to accommodate 17,000 visitors and host multiple events across diverse domains throughout the year.


Abdulla Al Habbai, chairman of Dubai Holding and group chairman of Meraas, said: “With Dubai Arena, the city has set a new benchmark in the tourism and family entertainment sector – shaping a new avenue for economic growth while also enhancing the emirate’s potential as a top destination for some of the world’s most prestigious events.


We believe that Dubai Arena perfectly complements City Walk’s unique community and lifestyle experiences and is a game changer in Dubai’s efforts to consolidate its status as a premier tourist destination.”


Dubai Arena is expected to enhance Dubai’s entertainment scene by attracting the best live entertainment acts and international sport events.


It is designed to host end-stage, central and half-stage concerts, sporting events such as tennis, basketball, boxing, volleyball and ice hockey matches, as well as gala dinners, exhibitions, conferences and festivals.
