Madinat Jumeirah to Open New Event Space in October 2015

The Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai will triple the size of its MICE space when the Fort Island expansion is completed in October 2015.

 Set over 1,750 square meters, the space is ideal for banquets, parties, exhibitions, product launches, music concerts, weddings, sports events and festivals for up to 1,400 people.

Margaret Paul, Resort General Manager, said, We are delighted to be unveiling the new Fort Island at Madinat Jumeirah, one of the citys most innovative and exclusive outdoor venues. This redevelopment demonstrates our commitment to continually enhance the guest experience and we look forward to catering for a larger and wider range of prestigious events for the meetings, incentives, conference and events (MICE) industry. The new venue has been rebuilt to accommodate large marquees and will provide versatile space for every type of event.

The capacities at Fort Island have increased from 425 people to 1400 people in a cocktail set-up and from 250 people to 1100 people in a banquet style set-up in rounds of 10.

 Located in the heart of the resort and surrounded by Madinat Jumeirahs characteristic waterways, Fort Island will be connected to the resort by four bridges and guests can also access the venue by the traditional wooden abra boats when staying in one of Madinat Jumeirahs three hotels.

An integral part of the existing Madinat Jumeirahs Conference Centre, the new island will increase the centres overall capacity to 9,000 people over 10,000 square meters.

The Conference Centre is home to international events such as Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF), the World Economic Forum and is the sponsor of Art Dubai.

The resorts three hotels are the Jumeirah Mina ASalam, Jumeirah Al Qasr, and Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf.
