Chinese New Year is traditionally celebrated around the world during the month of February. Dubai-based developer Nakheel needed to promote their Chinese-themed trade and retail centre, Dragon Mart, and decided to provide a spectacular stage show to a select audience of 500 guests. Members of the Invent team were commissioned to project-manage and operate the entire event, including design of the show, content, script, staging, technical sound and light, water screens and lasers, as well as the hospitality and overall event management.
Converting the main galleria of the building into a huge theatre with cabaret-style seating and a full gala dinner proved to be a huge logistical undertaking. Working with a dedicated team of fabrication and technical specialists, we produced a superb venue to showcase over 50 Chinese performers.
The show contained a variety of acts, selected from the best available in China, who welcomed the guests as they arrived, performed on stage prior to the dinner and treated all to a spectacular show afterwards. Many of the entertainers stayed on in Dubai for the following week and continued to perform, stunning mall visitors with their extraordinary skills.
