DWTC extension gets first outing

The brand new-state-of-the-art extension at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), the Sheikh Saeed Halls played host to its first exhibition in October - Gitex Technology Week 2009

The four inter-connected Sheikh Saeed Halls are located adjacent to Halls 1 through 4 of DICEC. The extension includes the Middle East's largest indoor multi-purpose hall – the Trade Centre Arena.

With the new extension now open, work is still ongoing around the Dubai World Trade Centre. Adjacent to the new Sheikh Saeed Halls is the Trade Centre Plaza, which is scheduled for completion by the end of December. The Trade Centre Plaza will be the gateway to the Dubai World Trade Centre District, featuring retail, restaurants and coffee shops, temporary open exhibits and shaded areas. Adjacent to the new Metro, the Plaza will be the anchor of the Dubai Trade Centre District and will complement the overall visitor experience.

A commercial office component of the Dubai Trade Centre District project is also underway and scheduled to come on stream early in 2011.

Commenting on the new Sheikh Saeed Halls, Helal Saeed Almarri, CEO of Dubai World Trade Centre, said: “The completion of our new extension marks a huge milestone for DWTC and takes us one step further to achieving our goal of positioning Dubai as the world's leading events destination. With the creation of the new Trade Centre Arena, we are now extremely proud to house the UAE's largest indoor events arena and look forward to showcasing a wide variety of events at our venue.”
