The billboard was strategically positioned at the entrance of the stunning Burj
Khalifa, the world's tallest building. Located in one of the most premier
destinations in the world,
Downtown Dubai
, billed as 'The Centre of Now,' the
Go Fast billboard by Skydive Dubai created a new landmark for
Dubai
.
Commenting on the Skydive Dubai's association with Go Fast for the billboard,
Mr. Nasser Al Neyadi, Chairman of Skydive Dubai, said: "This is an epic
moment, and we are very proud to be part of it. This initiative is another
example showcasing
Dubai
as a world leader in innovation and technology. The
billboard came into being with a simple idea that has transformed into an
exceptional event to attract a global audience. Our gratitude to our partners,
Go Fast and Emaar Properties, without whose support, this would not have
been possible."
"Skydive Dubai would like to acknowledge that the creation of such a
monumental dropzone would not be possible without the support and
extraordinary vision of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid
al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council and President of the
Dubai Sports Council."
Skydive
Dubai
is supported by Emaar Properties PJSC, the global property
developer of iconic projects, and the provider of premier lifestyles. Emaar has

Emaar, and features iconic developments including Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall
and The Dubai Fountain, in addition to homes, commercial offices and leisure
attractions.
Mr. Troy Widgery, CEO of Go Fast, commented on the event, saying, "We are
very happy to be in
Dubai
. During our first visit two years ago, the city left us
mesmerized. Its people and the culture here is amazing. We were immediately
convinced to bring Go Fast to the UAE and have introduced the Go Fast Halal
Energy Formula, the first of its kind in the world, developed especially for this
region. We are certain that the brand will be received very well here. We are
grateful for the support of Skydive Dubai for our venture in this part of the
world. With this billboard, we want the people to know that we will be here
soon."
