Jeanna Hofmeister

Dubai’s portfolio of entertainment options runs the gamut from glittering casinos and nightlife to safaris and culturally historic forts and museums. But the dynamic city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and its developers continue to imagine a future Dubai where conference and meeting attendees can also plan pre- and post-conference vacations with world-class attractions that hold high appeal for families. Set to open this October, Dubai Parks and Resorts will debut the region's largest integrated theme park resort that will comprise three separate theme parks along with a water park and resort hotel.  Here’s the scoop on what the excitement’s all about:

motiongate™ Dubai


Hollywood’s largest and most successful motion picture studios – DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios and Lionsgate – take visitors into a world of innovation and creative storytelling.  The journey at  motiongate™ Dubai begins at Studio Central, where visitors will be transported into the Golden Age of Hollywood. With real movie sets, visitors can go behind the scenes to learn more about the art and illusion of filmmaking. Separate adventures will lead visitors on a high-speed chase, Green Hornet style, exploring the magical world of the Smurfs, joining the Furious Five on an epic martial arts escapade or playing hero at any one of a dozen attractions, from roller coasters to thrill rides, multimedia theatre shows and interactive play zones.
