Exceptional Event Venues Set To Open in Riverland™ Dubai this Year

Riverland™ Dubai, the multi themed dining, retail and entertainment destination located at the heart of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the largest integrated theme park destination in the region, has announced the launch of four unique event venues that will be available for celebrations, parties and meetings when it opens on October 31st.

By launching these exciting new event venues, Riverland™ Dubai will redefine what is on offer in the city with everything from small boutique outdoor locations to a large indoor space, along with professional event consultation services.

Riverland™ Dubai’s event venues will include:

  • Riviera Plaza, an outdoor space of 2,400 square meters, set in lush green landscaping overlooking the river. Ideal for weddings, concerts, cocktail receptions, birthday parties, and corporate launch parties
  • The Boardwalk Plaza, another outdoor space set across 1,150 square meters, and centrally located in the 1950’s America themed area with bright colors and neon lights. This venue is perfect for corporate and social events.
  • The Encore is an 1,800 square meter indoor multi-purpose venue, which can accommodate hundreds to thousands of people. The Encore is an artist’s canvas, as it is literally a black box ready to be transformed according to the theme of the event, whether it’s a wedding, fashion show, concert, or a corporate function.
  • The Island Plaza, an outdoor location of 1,350 square meters, overlooks Dubai Parks and Resorts, offers a magnificent setting and spectacular views to wow guests at any social or corporate event.

Marcel Hendriks General Manager – Riverland™ Dubai, Dubai Parks and Resorts said: “We are delighted to announce the new venues at Riverland™ Dubai. These exceptional spaces will be operational once Dubai Parks and Resorts opens this year. Dubai is a vibrant city buzzing with regional and international events all year round, and securing appropriate locations for various types of social and corporate functions can be a challenge. That is why we are providing event planners, organizers and end users with a wide range of impressive options that they can customize as they wish.”

Visitors to Riverland™ Dubai will be taken on a visual experience through the ages, from a medieval French village themed area, featuring outdoor Mediterranean style dining and iconic landscapes, to the heady days of 1950’s America in Boardwalk, home to a range of casual dining options. India Gate, flanked by an impressive hands sculpture, will showcase the very best of 1930s India with its vibrant tastes, architecture and colours while Peninsula, which takes its architectural inspiration from the 19th century, will allow visitors to sit by the meandering river and enjoy casual dining options as well as live concerts and festivals.
