Abu Dhabi Ports UAE National Day 2018
UAE National Day is an auspicious occasion here in the United Arab Emirates, and so we were delighted when Abu Dhabi Ports asked us to organize their 47th annual National Day celebrations for staff and exclusive clients at the Kizad headquarters in Abu Dhabi.
UAE National Day celebrates the spirit of patriotism and national pride, sharing togetherness, UAE culture and unification, and traditional Arabian hospitality. GEM incorporated this spirit throughout much of the day. The scope of the event included sourcing and setting up a tent in traditional Bedouin arrangement for the seating of 500 guests, a live cooking station showcasing local women cooking traditional UAE sweets, and traditional activities that included ayallah dancers, henna tattooists, falcon and falconer and local entertainment. A full 3-course buffet-style lunch was set up in air-conditioned tents for after the festivities.
GEM also undertook the complete management and planning of all audiovisual requirements as well as event setup, stage design and lighting, branded stage backdrop and professional sound team. A balloon arrangement adorned either side of the stage in the UAE colours of red, green, black and white.
Despite the very quick turnaround of the event, the day was a great success, entertaining and engaging both the client and their staff and guests. Until next year!
