Contracted by IMG on behalf of the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, Arena Group’s UAE-based office Harlequin was entrusted to provide extensive event infrastructure for the sixth consecutive year. Harlequin created communal corporate areas within its double decker Championship Pavilion at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, ensuring tournament sponsors and VIP guests enjoyed exclusive views.
The 20m x 95m double deck hospitality structure featured a 5m set-back covered balcony on both floors providing exclusive views of the course’s flagship hole. An adjoined double height atrium was used to create the reception area, featuring full height palm trees, a reception desk and clear roof sheets to accentuate the white interiors with natural light. A central double height atrium was also included to provide a communal bar feature area for all guests to use. The new hospitality offering focused on communal, social hospitality spaces. An open plan interior space was created with sectioned branded areas for sponsors, integrating communal buffet and bar facilities with comfortable lounge and bar furniture.
