Keedy, believes that DIFC's image as a fashionable and aspirational area, as well as the hotel's contemporary feel, strong association with the arts and service excellence, are attracting an increased number of fashion and arts events to the hotel:
"The hotel is seeing a strong increase in the number of fashion and lifestyle brands wishing to hold events in the hotel, and we attribute this to our proximity to the thriving arts scene is DIFC, our own credentials as a lifestyle destination, and our ability to offer creativity and flexibility in creating bespoke events."
