The World’s Most Luxurious Hotel, Burj Al Arab, celebrated the 42nd UAE National Day with the greatest visual performance to grace her sail.

A stunning laser and digital 3D display, accompanied by spectacular choreographed music, captured the historic 42-year journey back to when the UAE was founded in 1971. Thanks to French Fireworks for creating this amazing experience.

For those not being able to see the remarkable 15-minute show, huge screens were mounted in key locations across Dubai, including Downtown Dubai, Dubai Mall and the open beach offering a dazzling evening.

Gerald Lawless, President and Group CEO of Jumeirah Group, said: “With Burj Al Arab as the canvas of the dazzling show organised by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, we are honoured to play such an integral role in celebrating this significant day. The achievements of the United Arab Emirates made in just 42 years lead to even brighter prospects for the future, with a number of ambitious projects and Dubai being chosen to host the World Expo 2020.”
