Developer’s new venue offers alternative to hotel-based conference centres
Developer Limitless has opened its new conference, meetings and corporate events venue in Dubai.
The Galleries – Business Lounge offers an alternative to hotel business facilities across 700 sqm of space and can accommodate up to 80 people with its boardrooms, meeting rooms and internet stations.
The development includes a separate lounge and relaxation areas which are available for private hire for up to 120 people.
"The Business Lounge is already proving popular with our growing number of commercial tenants at The Galleries. It's also an ideal venue for businesses in surrounding areas, such as Jafza, or for companies needing a location that is convenient for people coming from both Dubai and Abu Dhabi," commented Jamal Almulla Alsuwaidi, deputy director, Limitless Asset Management.
The facility, which is open 08:00 to 18:00 Sunday to Thursday, is located at The Galleries development and can be accessed via Sheikh Zayed Road or Dubai Metro.
Limitless, along with fellow Dubai developers such as Nakheel, was hit hard by the emirate’s property slump that began in 2008 and led to real estate prices plummeting by as much as 60 percent, causing many projects to be delayed or cancelled.
