The evening kicked off DCEB's Summer Roadshow, which includes several events in London and Manchester this week.

DCEB presented some of the exciting new projects in the pipeline in Dubai, including the planned addition of 15,000 and 25,000 more rooms by the end of 2016, and a target of 160,000 rooms by 2020, alongside new developments such as Wire World, Legoland, Bluewaters Island and Mall of the World.

Meanwhile, a prize draw saw several guests win, with Eventful's operations manager Claire Gardner taking home the top prize of flights to Dubai provided by Emirates and nights at several top hotels.

DRP PR manager Ryan Curtis said of the event: "It was a great networking event with the added touch of views overlooking the London skyline. It was a good opportunity to speak with hotels from Dubai and gain further knowledge of what the destination has to offer and they gave away some fantastic prizes."
