The Ataya Exhibition 2015 has opened for a ladies only preview before its May 6-9 general opening. The annual event is organised by the UAE Red Crescent under the patronage of Shaikha Shamsa Bint Hamdan Al Nahyan, and raises funds for a different worthy cause each year. This year proceeds will be sent to Autism Centres around the UAE. 

Each year leading brands from the UAE show up to support the cause, and display their wares for the sake of charity and this year's line up of brands is bursting with clout. Eateries such as Angelina Cafe and the new concept from burger buffs Salt, called Parkers as well as Shaikha Al Kaabi's traditional Emirati fare food truck Melas, are on hand to feed exhibition goers. 

Home grown jewellery designer Shamsa Alabbar will be selling her designs and Abu Dhabi creative concept boutique Minbart will have their curated accessories and fashion styles on display.  More jewels will adorn the lineup thanks for Bil Arabi by Nadine Kanso. Buro 24/7 Middle East favourite, Saudi designer Razan Alazzouni is also taking her exquisite new Ramadan collection to the fair.

With a solid lineup of Emirati exhibitioners, the Ataya Exhibition 2015 serves as a who's who of homegrown culinary and design talent, alongside some popular international favourites. Head down to the IPIC arena in Abu Dhabi for the celebrated event, peruse the covetable line up of accessories and design items and indulge in delicious treats.
