The Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the most modern exhibition centre in the world, was opened by the president of UAE and ruler of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan on 18th February, 2007.
Since then, the centre welcomes over one million visitors and hosts over 100 events every year. From large scale public shows such as the Abu Dhabi Book Fair to international trade exhibitions such as IDEX and ADIPEC, ADNEC is becoming famous for hosting high profile, large-scale exhibitions while it is also known to promote smaller specialist shows by developing, providing help and support to event organisers. With 12 Halls totalling 55,000 square metres (180,000 square feet), ADNEC is the largest exhibition venue in the Middle East.
The flexible, flat-floored, interconnected halls offer endless possibilities for all types of exhibitions and events; these facilities are complemented by extensive event services including imaginative conference and banqueting facilities. The Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre is managed by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company, a modern and dynamic organisation that is also masterminding the Capital Centre development. The stunning new exhibition complex illustrates the company’s commitment to providing the city with world-class facilities for business and its bold plans for the future development of Abu Dhabi as a commercial destination.
