xWith four days of non-stop action scheduled from October 31 to November 3, Yas Island is all set to show, in true celebratory style, why it is renowned as the region’s ultimate leisure and entertainment destination.

“Whether you are a family, a motorsport enthusiast, an executive looking to do business in the ‘fast lane’ or a reveler who loves soaking up the ecstatic energy of the atmosphere, Yas Island has it all,” says Karim El Guanaini, Vice President of Yas Island Destination Management.

“Home to world-class attractions, Yas Island becomes the epicenter of socialising and excitement over the weekend everyone is looking forward to this year in the UAE,” added El Guanaini.

Always dedicated to making the experience a weekend to remember, this year Yas Island will be trumping a variety of different offerings to suit all tastes. Encouraged to join enthusiastic crowds from around the world, guests to Yas Island will witness first-hand the epic festivities of that weekend atmosphere, live! “The most important message for us to share with the public is that Yas Island is open to all,” says El Guanaini.

El Guanaini added, “Yes there are activities which are exclusively available to the event attenders, however there are a number of other amazing experiences and events happening at Yas Marina and elsewhere on the island which will ensure abundant fun and action.”

With plenty of parking and an Island shuttle, (the Circuit Circular and yas express), Yas Island provides convenience and ease of accessibility alike. Located only 7 minutes from the Abu Dhabi International Airport, 25 minutes from the center of Abu Dhabi and 45 minutes from Dubai, visitors and residents can enjoy smooth access to the hive of activity.
