The Meydan Hotel – ‘A Meeting Place’
“Dubai’s world class physical infrastructure has already established it as a major player in terms of trade, tourism and as the leading conference and exhibition venue.”
“To become ‘unique,’ the challenge is to fight the hardest battle which anyone can imagine until you reach your destination.”
Meydan is the visionary concept of His Highnes Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai. It is a culmination of his vision to position Dubai at the centre of the competitive global business. The Meydan Hotel is an important link in the achievement of the Sheikh’s vision.
