The Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the most modern exhibition centre in the world, was opened by the president of UAE and ruler of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan on 18th February, 2007.
Since then, the centre welcomes over one million visitors and hosts over 100 events every year. Hosting many large scale exhibitions such as Cityscape, ADNEC is becoming famous for hosting high profile events while it is also known to promote smaller specialist shows by developing, providing help and support to event organisers.
