  10. 10. Venue<br />Artaaj Events has researched venues and stations along the Metro route and concludes that Trade Centre and Mall of the Emirates are the best locations to base the event. Ideally Trade Centre will be our primary focus with the inaugural journey taking the VIPs from The Mall of the Emirates to Trade Centre where the celebration will be centered.<br />In the event of the current building work at The World Trade Centre being incomplete we will reverse the journey making the primary location Mall of the Emirates and the Burj Al Arab the venue for our VIP events.<br />The venues were chosen on the basis of their location, landmark status and convenient parking/accessibility for all guests (public and VIP).<br />

  36. 36.

He and his team are genuinely excited by the prospect of this ambitious project.<br />There will be no obstacles on the tracks at any time and pyrotechnics will be a safe distance from the Metro<br />
  37. 37. Lighting and Pyrotechnics<br />The Metro Train is transformed into a shining laser beacon cutting through the night sky as the track lights up in its wake.<br />The effect on the train is created by using a series of lasers and powerful lights on the inside of the Metro. Our preference is to also use external lights on the outside of the Metro - although we acknowledge this is not permissible at present.<br />
