Network with the Wedding Industry in Dubai

written by


The Academy is now truly a global company with our regional campuses in the UK, Australia, Dubai, Malayasia, New Zealand and North America. As part of my role as the CEO I spend a lot of my time travelling, and the next couple of months are going to be no exception. I am gearing up for a trip to Dubai where I will be spending time with our students, attending meetings to set up new partnerships and being a part of some fantastic industry events.
One such event is a networking evening we are co-hosting with our friends at ILEA Middle East on the 10th of April at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city Jumeirah Creekside’s beautiful garden is a unique space, ideal for weddings and corporate functions, so we are excited to be offering this opportunity to see the venue as part of our event.

So for those of you that are located in Dubai we invite you to join us for a buffet dinner and cocktails under the stars. Socialize with event industry colleagues, make new contacts and relax with the hospitality of Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.

When: April 10th
Location: Jumeirah Creekside Hotel
Time: 7:00pm
Thanks also goes to our media partners BrideClub ME and Arabia Weddings. We also have some fabulous sponsors as part of the event so a big thanks to Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, Chocovana, Innovative  Hiring, CODA, MEES, Soul Photography Contempo Event Design, Iluma Lamps, Spark Digital and Source ME.
