Emirates Airlines Houston Launch

Emirates Airlines celebrated their inaugural round trip service from Dubai to Houston with a magnificent gala on the field of Minute Maid Park. Five hundred guests sashayed on red carpet from the valet to the infield. The cocktail reception was held on the diamond complete with fabulous perimeter uplighting and three 14-foot ice bars. Fireworks summoned the guests to the outfield where a seated dinner was held with Cindy Crawford as the Master of Ceremonies and a special performance by Spirit of the Dance. To cap off the evening, Kenny Rogers performed to the excited crowd.
