  • A very well organised exhibition hall. Very good man management. Security is exceptionally good. Ample space. They need to withdraw the parking charges.... parking is expensive. Additionally they must have a good food joint catering to all kinds.. Overall review.. An Excellent Arena
  • Perfect place for exhibitors and visitors for every kind of exhibition. Easy to park and walk into the exhibition area, no large maze-like tiresome routes, if you know what I mean. Well designed interior, makes the space feel larger than it actually is. All in all, a very comfortable experience.
  • Beautiful convention center. Absolutely huge, but there are plenty of information stands and security personal available to assist. There are many food and beverage vendors to suit whatever taste you have. We have had a very positive exhibiting experience here.
  • One of the best exhibition place. Well organised. State if the art , highly professional and using technology up to date for ease of everyone. Best in class.
  • A huge complex. It is well organized. The organizers also must be having a huge database on the movement of the visitors as the staff keeps on scanning the badges of the visitors when they enter different halls during exhibitions. This can be slightly irritating.

Where to stay in Abu Dhabi

One of the most expensive cities in the world, Abu Dhabi is famous for providing an unparalleled level of luxury. The modern development of Yas Island offers some of the priciest options in the city. Abu Dhabi doesn't really do hostels, but you can find some less expensive hotels in side streets less frequented by foreign visitors. Head away from the sea to find lower rates, or consider the areas south and east of the airport for simple rooms with basic amenities.
