Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority are the proud country partner for Connections Luxury Middle East & Africa. They will be providing the fantastic and phenomenal experiences on site, including henna painting, the Arabian Night Camp experience, Falconry, the Ferrari World Experience and much more!

The event is supported by the African Travel and Tourism Association (ATTA) and the is being hosted at the Yas Viceroy Hotel, Yas Island on September 6th-9th 2015.

Yas Island is also home to the world famous Ferrari World theme park and Abu Dhabi’s premier concert venue, so along with the Yas Viceroy’s own amenities, there’s no shortage of things to do. We’ll have a full program of experiences and activities for our attendees to sample, including an Arabian Desert Camp Dinner. I cannot wait for that one!

I’ve already been to check out the hotel and goodness me, our delegates will be in for a real luxurious treat! As you might expect, the Yas Viceroy offers a magnificent array of luxurious facilities all based on the iconic Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Every guest room features a minimum of 581 square feet (or 54 square metres) all featuring superb innovative features which match the hotel’s striking architecture.

The hotel offers 499 rooms and suites along with 11 dining and lounge venues — and of course, a top notch ESPA spa. I was seriously impressed by the hotel’s hugely innovative LED canopy roof — you’ll probably have seen it if you’ve watched any of the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 races. The Yas Viceroy directly overlooks the circuit so you can see the all races and practices.

Etihad Airways has committed it’s support as airline partner. [something about residence].

The official Connections Luxury dinner is sponsored by and will take place at the Emirates Palace Hotel, one of the iconic landmarks of Abu Dhabi, where delegates will sample amazing cuisine in enchanted palatial surroundings. Entertainment will be provided by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority.

We’ll be publishing more details on the event shortly, but in the meantime, if you’d like to participate as either a buyer, supplier or sponsor, please drop me a note to discuss. My email is [email protected].
