2nd Day Of Meet d3 At Dubai Design District

Meet d3

The inaugural event Meet d3 at the newest place in the emirate, the Dubai Design District, was a big success I reckon.

Friday afternoon when I brought my brood to the place. Promised to just have a glimpse then proceed to the Dubai Mall, but instead we spent hours there.

While heading, “hungry” was likely the outcry among us inside the car. Had some second thoughts of getting a quick bite from a petrol station we passed by but decided to have it in the district as this is what I’ve read from the press releases. This event is all about “designers, artists, musicians, concept retailers and unique dining experiences.”

With properly attended parking area, finding a spot was not a problem. One simple indication on how the event was properly and seriously looked into by the organizers.

Once inside the area, we still managed to take pictures of the different displays right in front of us. We kinda forgot our hunger for a while.

Then few steps away from the entrance, few of the food stalls and food trucks greeted us with “hello hungry tummies.” All of the food stalls and food trucks were there not just to feed the hundreds of onlookers of the event, but were there to showcase their creativity as well which is one of the purposes of the Meet d3 and of the near to completion district.

The delicious Rice and Chicken Masala from Moti Roti, filled our breadbasket.

Kids then went to their areas of fun.

Perfect place for kiddos and the not

Unfortunately, we’ve missed to witness any of the lined-up performances by local and foreign performing artists including John Newman’s. The 3-day Meet d3 event has ended but left a promising mark especially to those who have attended, that the Dubai Design District, once completed, will thrive as home to the creative minds that will help continue build, Dubai.

The district will compose of office spaces, creative offices, residential, hotels, retail, F&B, and convention centre. A very strategic location, not far from the heart of Dubai.

Business Opportunities
