The opening ceremony was also attended by Sheikh Shakhbut bin Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, along with a number of the club's officials and a number of attendees.
During his tour of the exhibition, Sheikh Nahyan was briefed on the exhibition's contents, which include 120 photographs taken by a number of Chinese photographers and the Chinese News Agency, reflecting many aspects of life in the United Arab Emirates and official visits by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to Beijing.

The Chinese ambassador stressed the importance of cooperation with the Emirates Heritage Club, which resulted in providing a distinctly unique exhibition which mirrors the cultural exchange between the two peoples of China and the UAE.
