Miss World 2009 Contestants visits Abu Dhabi

Miss World 2009 contestants are in Abu Dhabi for the official opening of the Yas Hotel, and will participate during a fashion event on Thursday. They also attended a special gala dinner in their honor on Wednesday

This week, the hotel is dusting itself off from the inaugural Grand Prix weekend and gearing up to host 110 Miss World contestants this evening, all on a stopover ahead of their flight to South Africa for the pageant early next month. Things there are busy but good, says Kate Midttun, the hotel’s marketing and communications director. “We don’t want to be known just as the Grand Prix hotel,” she adds, talking of hopes that Yas Island will attract people independently of the events it holds.
