Coca-Cola Arena Opens in Dubai

By: Admin | Posted on: Tuesday October 1, 2019

Populous designed Coca-Cola Arena has been opened in Dubai. It is known to be the only venue of its kind between Istanbul and Singapore that can host events throughout the year. Populous worked with one of the world’s largest entertainment group – AEG Ogden, to prepare the concept design of this newly opened arena.

The Coca-Cola Arena will transform the face of the entertainment and events scene in Dubai, helping to cement the city’s position as a major global destination for tourism and trade.

The arena has the capacity of 17,000, which makes it the largest multi-purpose indoor arena in the region. It has the ability to incorporate climate control, which makes it the only arena of its kind between Istanbul and Singapore to support a year-round programme of events, even in the hotter summer months.

The façade of the arena is covered with LED strip light system, which creates a dramatic effect as the building becomes illuminated with changing colours at night-time and animating the surrounding area. Owned by Meraas and operated by AEG Ogden, it will host international touring artists, world-renowned comics, family entertainment, sports events, gala dinners, exhibitions and conferences.

Populous completed the concept design for the Coca-Cola Arena. Contractor ASGC Group, with DAR Group, completed design development, interior design, way finding design, and construction information.
