Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
October 8 - 11, 2009

The beginning of this October in Kuala Lumpur means two things: it will be raining but during the day it will be slightly cooler and easier to breathe, and the annual Malaysia Jewellery Festival, officially accredited as the Biggest Jewellery Event in Malaysia will start. Those are two good reasons to visit Kuala Lumpur, the city of the legendary Petronas Twin Towers.

Starting from tomorrow, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the "Best Convention Centre in Asia" by CEI Industry Award 2009, also known as "a city within a city" located in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, will be the host of the 15th Malaysia Jewellery Festival. More than 250 exhibitors from more than 15 countries will take part in this event. Sapphires, semi-precious stones, platinum jewellery, gold jewellery and diamonds will spark in their whole glory, antique and brand new watches will attract visitor's attention. It will be crowded, that's for sure, but with all that beauty concentrated on one place you will enjoy in every minute.

Shanghai, China
October 16 - 18

The open air jazz festivals are very special kind of music events which offer a very intimate interaction between jazz artists and public. JZ Music Festival in Shanghai gradually built its position among big open air festivals from 2004 and today it's one of the best festivals around.

This year visitor will enjoy in Chinese-American mix of artists and the names like Dee Dee Bridgewater and JZ Big Band will open the festival with the concert at the Yunfeng Theatre. The next day all excitement and smooth jazzy feelings will move to the Pudong Century Park in which 37 bands and 20 DJs will perform on three stages – jazz, rock/folk and electrograss. Young artist will also get their chance to show their skills and there will be a special playground for young children. DJs will bring their own electric emotions and chefs from all around the world will cook especially for this event, so it's not exaggeration to say that there's no better way to spend this weekend.

Doha, Qatar
October 21 - 24, 2009

You're just decided to redecorate your home and already hired an interior designer to help you do that? If unique is what you seek and "innovation not imitation" is what you really want, put your interior designer on hold, pack your suitcase and be in Doha on October 21th when 8th The International Furniture & Design Exhibition (INFDEX), the biggest "show and sell" interior design and home decor event in Qatar takes place.

Every day from 4pm to 10pm all you need for your home will be displayed at Doha Exhibition Center. This year the record 100 exhibitors are expected to demonstrate their creativity and imagination and the latest interior trends in furniture design (office furniture included), textiles and accessories. It's on you to "slide" from Philippines, Spain, Germany, Italian, U.K. and many other exhibitors until you find "That's it!" pieces. As the exhibition starts in the afternoon, seize the morning and look what Doha's real estate companies have to offer. Doha is a stress free city and maybe your perfect escape place and good choice for transferring business in that region.

Abu Dhabi, UAE
October 30 -
November 1, 2009

For visiting Abu Dhabi in any time of the year you don't need a special reason, but we will give you a good one: superb villas, the Ferrari theme park and the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in one place - in United Arab Emirates on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Exactly there, on Yas Island, the first Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be held at the spectacular new Yas Marina Circuit (built in just two years) from October 30 to November 1, 2009.

For the first time in the long history of Formula 1 a race will start in daylight and end during the night time, an unforgettable experience for all motorsport lovers. Speaking in numbers: approximately 50,000 spectators can view a race, 5.55km long track can be split in smaller tracks at 3.1km and 2.4km and each of them can host a race independently, estimated top speed is 317km/h, estimated lap time is 1 min and 40 seconds. On October 30, the most spectacular motorsport venue in the world will host the creme de la creme in motto word. Your destination - Abu Dhabi.
