ADNEC honoured at World Travel Awards

Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) was awarded ‘Middle East’s Leading Exhibition Centre at the World Travel Awards 2009.


Over 170,000 travel industry professionals voted in this year’s awards, the highest number in the event’s 16 year history. ADNEC beat off competition from other Gulf-based exhibition centres to win the award.


The venue also took home three gongs from the Middle East Event Awards, held at the end of April in Dubai. ADNEC scooped up Best Venue and Best Trade Show for IDEX 2009. Summer in Abu Dhabi, organised by ADNEC, also won Best Theme, an award that was accepted by event designers HQ Creative.


ADNEC’s CEO Simon Horgan was also recognised with an outstanding contribution to the Middle East events industry award.


Commenting on ADNEC's award winning performance, Horgan said: "These awards are a result of four years of hard work by everybody involved with ADNEC, from the unwavering support of the leadership of Abu Dhabi, to the commitment of our partners in staging memorable events, to the endless energy and enthusiasm of ADNEC's employees. Together, we have created the events industry in Abu Dhabi, in recent years the effects of this transformation have been felt far beyond the borders of the emirate. I am honoured to say that the international events industry is now looking to the Middle East, and particularly to Abu Dhabi, for innovation and inspiration - this is the greatest tribute possible."
