Millions of Dirhams of jewellery, fine art and antiques on display


Millions of Dirhams of jewellery, fine art and antiques will be on display at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) this week, as two exclusive exhibitions open today (Wednesday, November 21, 2007) at the Middle East’s premier exhibition centre. 

The first ever International Fine Arts and Antiques Fair, runs from November 21 – 24, 2007, and will showcase more than 20,000 individual exhibits, with each piece available for purchase at prices ranging from USD 25,000 (AED 91,712) to USD 5 million (AED 18.34 million).  More than 100 of the world’s most prestigious galleries and dealers will be presenting exclusive collections of art and antiques during the Fair, ranging from contemporary and traditional art through to 19th and 20th century antiques. 

The Abu Dhabi International Jewellery and Watch Exhibition (ADIJEX), will be running concurrently from November 21 – 25, 2007; the exhibition will showcase a superior collection of jewellery and precious stones from across the world.  The event, which is considered as one of the foremost jewellery and watch exhibitions in the Gulf region, is open to the public and is expected to attract buyers and visitors from across the Middle East.

His Excellency Ahmad Humaid Al Mazrouie, Managing Director of ADNEC, said, “These world-class exhibitions will provide an opportunity for distinguished visitors to enjoy and appreciate a unique assembly of some of the world’s best jewellery, art and treasured artefacts right on their doorstep. These two leading shows are certainly some of the most illustrious events to be held at our new venue, we believe these events will become key attractions in the emirate’s social calendar in the future.”

“Prestigious events such as these are helping to brand Abu Dhabi as the cultural capital of the Middle East, which is in line with the vision of the leadership of Abu Dhabi” Mazrouie added.

The Fine Art and Antiques Fair is held under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage and ADNEC; and is being organised by Turret Middle East – one of ADNEC’s foundation partners. All exhibits at the event have had their authenticity guaranteed by a panel of experts prior to the show. 

ADIJEX is being organised by REED Exhibitions – another of ADNEC’s foundation partners.  Both exhibitions will be open from 4pm until 10pm daily.
