The Madinat Jumeirah's Fort Island extension in Dubai to open this October
Creating a record-breaking event space
This October, Madinat Jumeirah will reveal the new addition of Fort Island and this latest development together with Mina A'Salam, Al Qasr and Dar Al Masyaf hotels will make Madinat Jumeirah the largest hotel event space in Dubai.
With a previous capacity of 425, the new space will be able to accommodate 1,400 guests for all manner of events such as banquets, parties, exhibitions, product launches, weddings and more.
Accessible via any of four footbridges, or the popular abra boats that service the Madinat's canal-like waterways, the additional island maintains the ancient arabic aesthetic of the surroundings and will possess sustainable landscapes.
Margaret Paul, Resort General Manager, said: "We are delighted to be unveiling the new Fort Island at Madinat Jumeirah, one of the city's 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."
