We cannot believe everything we went through over the last 3 months! with more than 15 amazing events cancelled (some of them really cool) we had a very sad time.
But now that everything seems to be opening again, will the events be the same?
We are ready to start working again in our two favorite events, El Café our monthly breakfast with workshops and The Beauty Afternoon, and afternoon tea in 5 starts venues where fashion and beauty brands presents their products and offer free services.
We have new ideas for the coming season, including events related to food, eco-friendly activities, kids and pre-loved items.
As per the UAE Government guidelines events and social gatherings are not allowed yet, and the venues can open with social distancing measurements, which is making our parties impossible for now.
"My guess is it would be a combination of V- and U-shaped recovery. This pandemic is a worldwide issue and for the economy to get back (onto the track), the whole world has to recover. Now we have seen recovery in many countries. We also have seen similar things in UAE where more coronavirus cases are recovering and that is a good sign for us," said Abdullah Al Nuaimi, UAE's Minister for Infrastructure Development.
Unfortunately some of our favorite restaurants and brands closed down, and many other are really struggling to survive this hard times.
As per our experience, the events calendar in Dubai during the summer months is very limited and the country is very quiet due to the extreme heat (more than 40 degrees already), the closure of out door venues and clubs, and the fact that a large part of the population are expats that travel during summer.
We have a big hope to start announcing our plans by the end of August or the beginning of September, keep watching our blog and social media!
