Qatar Today - - BUSINESS > MARKETWATCH -

The Qatar Min­istry of Cul­ture and Sports has awarded the op­er­a­tion of two world-class are­nas to ELAN Live Na­tion, a joint ven­ture (JV) be­tween ELAN Group and Live Na­tion.

The joint ven­ture be­tween ELAN Group, a di­ver­si­fied and fully in­te­grated me­dia and en­ter­tain­ment group in the Mid­dle East, and Live Na­tion, the global leader in live en­ter­tain­ment, will op­er­ate Lu­sail Mul­ti­pur­pose Arena in Lu­sail, and Ali Bin Ha­mad Al Attiyah Mul­ti­pur­pose Arena in Al Sadd, which have al­ready hosted the suc­cess­ful 2015 World Hand­ball Championships in Doha. The JV will pro­vide arena man­age­ment, pro­mo­tional, man­age­rial, and fa­cil­ity main­te­nance sup­port ser­vices for both venues. The are­nas are set to host an ar­ray of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment, sports, mu­sic and other live events, bring­ing new en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ences to the pop­u­la­tion of Qatar. Ab­dul Rah­man Ab­dul­lah Al Ma­liki, Di­rec­tor of As­set Man­age­ment and Projects at the Min­istry of Cul­ture and Sports, said: “The de­vel­op­ment of the sports sec­tor is a strate­gic goal for the Min­istry to im­prove the sports en­vi­ron­ment, cul­ture, prac­tice, pro­fes­sion­al­ism and in­fra­struc­ture in or­der to en­hance the coun­try's sta­tus as the cap­i­tal of sports in the world, es­pe­cially with re­gard to the 2022 FIFA World Cup re­quire­ments.”

At Dun­hill this win­ter, itís re­vival time for Art Deco's time­less, sleek curvi­lin­ear lines; the col­lec­tion's ac­ces­sories cap­ture the se­duc­tive­ness of the last cen­tury's most glam­orous de­sign move­ment mo­tor­ing the de­sign aes­thetic for the next three decades, from lighters to cuff­links and from tie pins to watches.
