And on the floor above, for the sixth time, an industry karaoke tournament was held. How it was – in our photo report.

The rest of the guests were not allowed to get bored with contests and competitions, the winners of which also left with valuable prizes from the sponsors of the tournament. Throughout the day, guests took part in an Instagram contest, as a result of which 3 winners were awarded vouchers from hotels in the Emirates: JA Palm Tree Court, Grand Hyatt Dubai, Andaz Dubai The Palm.
But not only tournaments and competitions were waiting for the participants. Traditionally, a memorable program is prepared for all guests, which is different every year. This time, the guests had fun all day, trying themselves as a bartender. They made with their own hands, and then tasted limoncello and other alcoholic cocktails. And those who wished received funny cartoons as a keepsake. The program was supplemented by professional dancers, magicians and musicians of the Kristall group.
While fun reigned around the stage, passions ran high on the bowling alleys. The fight in the adult tournament was very tense, and it was not easy to get to the final – only 24 players out of 181 in the final!
Traditionally, those who took places from 9 to 24 according to the results of the final round received pleasant gifts from ART-TOUR.
