Most Businesses and events owners believe the Omicron variant’s disruption will be over sooner than expected.

As Businesses and events in the UAE gradually return to normalcy, more people are dining out, going to the movies, and hosting weddings.

Wedding planners and event managers expressed satisfaction with the way business recovered, particularly in November and December 2021. But then there was a stutter caused by the Omicron variant of Covid-19, which made residents wary.

Though the threat of the variant has partly circumvented the country’s defenses built through massive inoculation drives. Most business owners in the UAE are optimistic that the disruption will fade sooner than expected.

‘It’s a wonderful time of year for celebrations.’

Vivaah Celebrations’ CEO and owner, Rahul Kumar, stated: “In our event and wedding business. We are pleased with how the business has recovered. Over the last year, they have had a fantastic season of celebrations.”

Kumar said that he and his team had to turn down business in a few cases because they were too active with other clients. “We can confidently ask that the business has completely revived for us,” he said.

Kumar and his team completed 16 large-scale weddings, including Dubai’s first Covid-compliant wedding celebration.

“The region is uniquely position to attract world-class events, huge wedding celebrations,” Kumar said. “We owe this to our country’s leaders, who have been unequivocal about the preventive measures to be taken, the event guidelines, or the active vaccination drive. This has offered our clients a lot of trust in the system, and they are willing to sign large-value contracts, especially for the most important day of their lives, their wedding.”

“When the Covid cases started to rise again, we decided to limit going out. Especially avoiding crowded and enclosed areas,” said Filipino expat Izabella Faye Lebig, a Dubai resident. We still go to the mall or restaurants on occasion, but we avoid crowded areas. I believe that, despite the current situation, we can still find ways to go out, but we must take all necessary health precautions to ensure our safety.”

Naeema Zaki, an American expat, echoed Lebig’s sentiments, saying she and her family are picky about where they travel. For safety reasons, we are doing more of our shopping online than ever before. When we think of family gatherings, they now look for outdoor spaces,” she said.
