ADNEC adds personal touch

Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) announced today, that more than 80% of Capital Centre plots have now been handed over to developers personally by senior members of the ADNEC team.  Over the coming months and years, the 8 million sq ft site, adjacent to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, will be transformed into a mixed use development of 23 towers which will provide a mix of hotel, office, retail and serviced accommodation. 

Commenting on the announcement, His Excellency Ahmad Humaid Al Mazrouie, Managing Director of ADNEC, said:

"Capital Centre has been carefully designed by an international team of master-planners, architects and engineers.  Our objective from day one was to create a thriving destination which will complement the success of the exhibition centre and be an icon for the people of Abu Dhabi and for international visitors. It has been an honour to personally hand over our land to our developers and their supporting teams. It is a very special time for us."

Speaking from ITB Berlin, one of the world's leading tourism exhibitions, ADNEC Business Development Director, Sanjay Tanna commented:

"One of the things which has made this project unique has been our underlying principle of customer service. Once the deal had been done it would have been easy for ADNEC's involvement to diminish, but that is not our way of working.  This is why each plot of land has been personally handed over by a senior member of the ADNEC team to the organisation responsible for developing that plot."

ADNEC's most recent land handover was with the Abu Dhabi Investment Company (ADIC). ADIC was the first investment company in the UAE and is one of the leading financial firms in the region.
