However, the people behind the global phenomenon are of course not sharing exactly where 1000 people will arrive, dressed in ivory in December.
If you think you’ve got what it takes for your presence to be requested, you’ll find out sooner rather than later.
Invitations are being given out this week by "gatherers" and only 12 of those 100 – along with the Master Great Gather who is linked with the original Paris event – will know where the venue is up until the day.
If you know someone who attended last year or have links with the organisers, that probably your only chance to be included in this hush hush party.
Diner En Blanc has editions across the globe up an anonymous organizer admitted that "finding a venue in a place like Dubai is always a challenge".
Last year, Sofitel The Palm hosted the pop-up picnic bash where those in attendance bring their own home-made dish – white food only - and more than 600 guests showed up.
"We have found a unique venue and will certainly surprise, once again, our guests. We want to allow them to have fun, and to enjoy Dubai as they probably never have before. They don’t know who we are or where they shall be heading, they just know that it is a dinner, authentic and chic, in white and that it will be a great surprise and an exhilarating moment," an organizer said.
So what should we expect from the event that started 27 years ago in Paris, has more than 20 editions all over the world and is only experiencing its second edition in this city?
“A bigger more practical gathering, with more extravagance also expected in the attire of the guests, and more entertainment. Their values are fun and elegance; they do not seek to make money or to draw attention upon them. It is also an environmentally friendly event with guests asked to leave the venue spotless.”
16,000 people turned up for the biggest version in France which took place at Palais Royal.
With time, perhaps the annual gathering with become as popular in the UAE.
