On this occasion, Emirates Palace will host several attractions inside the hotel, from a remarkable display of 45 different kinds of dates to a small traditional heritage village, which promises to wow every guest. “The displays inside the hotel and the huge video mapping outside the hotel will give spectators an insight into UAE culture and how far the nation has come with all the progress happening around,” said Holger Schroth, General Manager at Emirates Palace.


The kitchen artist at Emirates Palace has built a dhow that will be on display in the Grand Dome area. “Our talented artist has put a lot of effort into making this dhow display, he went to the Sayed Port and spoke with the marine experts as to how to build the dhow and took it from there. He is currently at work on the dhow, and it is made out of Styrofoam and painted in the traditional colors. This year the celebrations will be bigger than ever and we are expecting more spectators than ever before,” added Schroth.
