The Emirates Hello Tomorrow Virtual Reality Experience was a definite highlight. More than 300 visitors a day were wowed by a virtual tour of the training grounds at The Emirates Arsenal Stadium with a chance to ‘meet’ Ex-Arsenal player Raymond Parlour or a get glimpse of the First Class Lounge in which an experienced Emirates chef prepared their virtual gourmet meal.
Crowds gathered to see and try Emirates‘ brand new Boeing 777 Business Class seat, being showcased for the very first time at ITB. The newly enhanced seat features additional amenities like a conveniently located mini-bar and the latest touchscreen controller, allowing the seat to be electrically converted into a comfortable, flat sleeping position.

During ITB, more than 430 meetings took place in the state-of-the-art meeting rooms on the second floor of the stand, underlining the importance of contact with trade partners, customers and industry stakeholders. Guests experienced Emirates’ award-winning hospitality and fine dining in the hospitality areas while sharing ideas and best practice.
