The grand opening of Sotheby’s Dubai has taken place under the Royal Patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Mabarak Nahyan, Minister of Culture & Knowledge Development and alongside Sotheby’s CEO Tad Smith.
Sotheby’s President Tad Smith along with Sotheby’s Chairman for the Middle East Edwards Gibbs hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week to launch the opening of Sotheby’s Dubai. The ceremony took place at the global auction house’s new gallery and office space at Level 1, Gate Village Building 3, Dubai International Financial Centre, UAE.
This year marks Sotheby’s 273rd birthday, and in celebration of that fact they are proud to open their new gallery and office space within Dubai’s international financial hub. Tad Smith commented: “The Middle East, and especially the United Arab Emirates, has grown and prospered at an extraordinary pace. Sotheby’s Dubai brings three centuries of history and expertise, and we look forward to contributing to an even greater future together on this fulcrum of the world’s jewellery, art, and luxury car markets.”
