Le Meridien Dubai opens ballroom for events

Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre has launched a new space for events.

The 2,467sqm pillar-less Great Ballroom, which can be divided into three sections, caters for 1,75 guests overall and is located on the ground level of the property.

Two large foyer areas can accommodate more than 1,000 guests and the ballroom features two built-in LED screens to display and project images at every corner of the ballroom, with additional screens in the foyer areas. 

Shaun Parsons, complex general manager, said: "We’re very excited about our all-new Great Ballroom which is rich in detail, and reflects the sign of times to come in the UAE, a fast-growing leading MICE destination globally."

The Starwood-owned property, located a two-minute drive from Dubai International Airport, offers 579 rooms.
