Abu Dhabi, February 2012: ADNEC (Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre) has achieved the prestigious ISO 9001:2008 certification further endorsing its status as a leading exhibition, conference and event venue in the Middle East region.
HE Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of ADNEC, received the ISO certificate from representatives of BSI, the audit certification agency. Members of the ADNEC Board of Directors and senior management were also present.
“The certification points to the excellent service standards of ADNEC and is in line with efforts to ensure the venue remains best-in-class,” said Sheikh Sultan.
“I would like to express my deepest thanks to all ADNEC employees for their on-going contribution to the venue’s success” said His Excellency Ali Saeed Bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, ADNEC’s Managing Director, commenting on the successful bid.
