Planning for the new centre is currently underway with construction scheduled to start this summer. The current Galleria Arabia will be transformed into an event space for seminars, presentations and exhibitions, while the Iittala Outlet Arabia store – located in the same premises – will undergo a transformation so that it also offers an engaging experience for visitors.
