Spirit of Collaboration

Walk into the space where the region’s future is being decided. This vast, circular room, aptly named Spirit of Collaboration, is where entities such as the Federal Supreme Council, the Arab League and the Gulf Cooperation Council come together to express ambitions, set agendas, and map the way forward. Visitors can learn about diplomacy and protocol as they admire the iconic chandelier and unique layout of the room, which symbolizes the UAE’s commitment to illumination and equality.

Opened to the public in 2019, the Spirit of Collaboration features imposing gold doors, and a lofty dome in blue, white and gold. The chandelier is crafted from 350,000 dazzling pieces of crystal and is one of the most-loved attractions within Qasr Al Watan.

The Spirit of Collaboration room is inspired by the legacy of the UAE’s Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s emphasis on collaboration and unity.
