Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company has announced the launch of the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Abu Dhabi.
The ICC at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), which rebrands its Abu Dhabi Hall, is expected to boost the UAE capital’s positioning as a destination for large-scale international conventions and association events.
“ADNEC has an important role to play in achieving the vision for the emirate outlined in Abu Dhabi’s Plan 2030. Building on our success to date, we continue to seek out new opportunities and raise Abu Dhabi’s international profile as a destination for major events; the creation of ICC Abu Dhabi is another step in this direction,” said HE Ali Saeed Bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, Managing Director, Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company.
“The ICC move comes ahead of this week’s World Ophthalmology Congress 2012 being held at ADNEC from 16-20 February. The event is the largest congress to be staged in the UAE capital and is expected to attract 12,000 delegates”, said ADNEC’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Humaid Al Dhaheri.
“Hosting successful events of this scale showcases our capabilities and the flexibility of our venue. With a dedicated ICC and all the supporting facilities we have in place, Abu Dhabi is in a great position to attract many more large conventions in the coming months and years,” he added.
