Venue Update

Following a verification and validation process established in collaboration with the three government bodies, the Dubai Assured stamp is issued to all establishments that comply with health and safety guidelines, in accordance with the preventive protocols issued by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management. Every two weeks each establishment will be verified again by the relevant authority inspectors, and the stamp renewed. Establishment visitors can look out for, or enquire to see the stamp, and know that all safety measures have been put in place to ensure their health and wellbeing. Taj Dubai – Verne Hotels LLC is a part of this program – the hotel has placed sanitisers in high touch point areas and has regular sanitisation of all venues pre and post the event. Guests are encouraged to keep their mask on and maintain safe distance in the venue.
