In October, Arena Group and Harlequin Marquees marked their new joint venture with an extravagant launch party in Dubai. More than 350 event professionals from Dubai and Abu Dhabi gathered in a newly imported double-decker structure on the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel to celebrate the partnership.
The 40-by-15-meter (131-by-50-foot) structure featured a glass front and doors, and it had a central atrium that allowed guests to view the stage from the second floor. The inside of the structure was fully dressed with details, including mirrored columns and unique artwork.
Harlequin Marquees has been supplying the Dubai market for 10 years. Arena Group is based in Cambridgeshire, U.K., and its Arena Structures division specializes in temporary and semipermanent event tents and double-decker structures.
