Yas Island opens window for sponsorship opportunities

By Staff

Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, is a stunning, cosmopolitan and energetic location looking to host exciting events that will support it in celebrating Abu Dhabi’s cultural diversity, driving overnight visitation to the island and creating economic impact for the destination.

Destination Yas Island has opened an inaugural window of opportunity to event organisers based locally and internationally who are interested in applying for sponsorship to host their event on Yas Island, to help encourage people to visit, dine, shop and stay on the island.

The window – closing on 24 January 2017 - will provide the opportunity for event organisers to secure sponsorship from Miral, for events being held between 1 July 2017 and 31 December 2018 eligible to apply.

Yas Island is located a mere 10 minutes from the Abu Dhabi International Airport, 25 minutes from central Abu Dhabi, and 50 minutes from Dubai International Airport. Notorious for hosting world-class events ranging from the FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX to concerts such as Madonna, Andrea Bocelli and Coldplay, Yas Island has always been a pioneer when it comes to entertainment. Today, the island has become recognised as a destination committed to creating unique, immersive and long-lasting experiences for all those who visit.

Committed to working with partners to deliver an array of memorable events, activities and entertainment designed to exhilarate visitors, Miral is looking to work with organisers to bring new events that will delight, excite, and leave their mark on visitors coming from all corners of the globe.

Organisers are encouraged to submit an event sponsorship application by visiting https://www.events.yasisland.ae/.

Miral will then invite organizers to submit a detailed event concept proposal, with final sponsorship decisions being advised by February 2017.
Possible event venues include: du Arena, du Forum, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Gateway Park, MAD on Yas Island, Yas Links, Yas Mall, Yas Marina, Yas Marina Circuit and Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi.

Sponsorship applications are subject to Miral’s terms and conditions. If organisers have any enquiries or would like to discuss an event concept, they can contact sponsorship@yasisland.ae.
