Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is a symbol of Dubai and the world’s most luxurious hotel, renowned for providing exceptional guest experiences. Therefore, it is only fitting that the inaugural Gulf Concours takes place here,” said Mr. Anthony McHale, General Manager, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.

Dubai and the United Arab Emirates is the perfect location for this new twist on the traditional Concours with the addition of new cars as it reflects the Gulf’s love of rare, exclusive and sometimes near priceless motor vehicles both old and new.

Most recently, the team ran the successful Concours of Elegance held in the private quadrangle of England’s Windsor Castle with the kind permission of Her Majesty The Queen.

The Gulf Concours is set to become one of the world’s most noted Concours d’ elegance events and will be a part of Dubai 2020 by attracting the wealthiest collectors and connoisseurs from within the region and around the globe.
