Luxury lifestyle show returns to the capital with over Dhs1.4 billion worth of products
Got some dirhams to burn? Then be sure to check out the Big Boys Toy exhibition, a luxury lifestyle show, which returns to Adnec this month. Featuring everything you didn’t know you needed, expect international exhibitors displaying unique and limited-edition products from ten lifestyle categories including aviation, wellness, off-road, fashion and digital gadgets.
So what’s on offer? Check out a giant drone-like tricopter called a Flike, also known as a flying bike, that can either be piloted or used on unmanned flights. If you’d rather your wheels stayed on the ground, the Y2K Superbike comes powered by Rolls-Royce turbine engines. The motorcycle is so fast it was actually recognised by the Guinness World Records for clocking in a speed of 227mph. Plus there’ll be a customised LaFerrari, the limited hybrid Ferrari, and Ferrari Enzo to drool over from British car company Automotive Couture.
New this year is a Woman’s World section, which will cater directly to ladies and will feature fashion houses, jewellery, beauty products, travel, interiors, wellness and lifestyle products. Already confirmed to attend are jewellers Jacob Albee, Theodoros and Sadaff Jewellery as well as regional fashion designer Kubra Al Qaseer, accessories brand Blinga design and niche perfumer Mounia Paris.
