With the advent of summer, people tend to slow down and plan for their summer holidays. For us, it has been a hectic time, with the action geared around Baselworld. This time, we were greeted with newly redesigned halls and a lot more watch and jewellery launches. It is also heartening to know that the UAE continue to remain the seventh largest importer of Swiss watches, according to a survey done by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry. Meeting up with the movers and shaker in the luxury watch and jewellery industries proved rather exhilarating.
Back in Dubai, the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) turned out to be a huge success with the leading hotel chains, travel agencies and airlines participating. We interview some of the key personalities from the hospitality field.
The motoring world continues to amaze us with its latest offerings. We were in Hamburg, along with around 750 international guests, at the delivery centre for the Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft, for the world launch of Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The luxury saloon was flown in from the plant in Stuttgart on a new Airbus A300-600 DHL cargo plane – two machines, each at the pinnacle of its development. We also explore the latest launches by Porsche, Jaguar and BMW.
Abstract art is taken to new dimensions by German Artist Isabella Zacher-Finet, who is able to produce a masterpiece in a jiffy. We explore the world of art as created by this versatile artist.
As you prepare for your summer holidays, our office has decided to savour the beautiful celebratory anniversary cake, presented to us by the wonderful team at Le Meridien Dubai.
Meanwhile we wish you a Bon Voyage!
