The Luxury Network International has set Dubai, UAE, as the chosen host city for this year’s The Luxury Network International Awards presented by CAEL. The annual celebration recognizes companies and brands nominated for their achievements in the luxury industry.
The honorees will include both well-established companies and emerging luxury brands, on the local and international levels as well as humanitarian personalities and successful business leaders. This year’s awards will take place at the brand new Caesar’s Palace, Bluewaters Island on 23 February 2019.
“We really wanted to make a statement this year, both in location and recognizing the achievements of these brands and companies. Nowhere else in the world embodies luxury as the UAE, so it was the perfect fit for this year’s gala and awards show. This event will be even more exceptional than our past events.” said Fares Ghattas, Global CEO of The Luxury Network.
This year’s awards gala is under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the UAE Minister of State for Tolerance, who will be in attendance, along with over 400 representatives from the nominated companies, partners, sponsors, and honorary guests from across the globe.
The presenters of the event this year include Robert Nakhel from Sky News and Malak Fawaz Abdallah from Dubai Sports TV. The keynote speakers are H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, H.E. Fouad Chehab Nabih Dandan, Lebanese Ambassador to the UAE, and Dr. Ahmed Bin Mohammed Al-Jarwan.
The awards will be presented to the winners of 16 various categories during the gala dinner, whilst the guests witness some performances by A-list singers Faiz Al Said, Yara, and Walid Toufic throughout the evening. The celebrations will continue into the night, highlighted by both the beautiful venue and the prominent guests in attendance.
The awards will not only accentuate achievements in the luxury industry, but also the extraordinary work of CAEL, born through the Balsamat Charity Organization and the official charitable partner of The Luxury Network International Awards 2019.
CAEL works to promote the achievements of extraordinary humanitarian acts throughout the Middle East and to highlight the leading role that embassies can play in bringing together people of the region and the world.

The proceeds of The Luxury Network International Awards 2019 will be donated to Rashid Centre for the Disabled, to help further their mission throughout the region.
