SPATEC Middle East – Dubai

The Arabian Fortress
Today I am back at the office after a short time in Dubai where we were supporting the Questex-McLean Events European team with the on-site operations of the very first SPATEC Middle East! This event brings together buyers and suppliers from the Spa industry in the Middle East and beyond together for two days of one-to-one meetings and other networking activities to make sure that everyone gets the most out of their stay.

Despite the hot and extremely humid weather in Dubai, we had a nice welcome dinner at the beach bar between the two hotels – Le Meridien and Westin – that make up the Mina Seyahi Complex. The venue was beautifully set-up and ideal for a relaxed welcome dinner. After a day of meetings, we treated the delegates to a lovely dinner at an Arabian fortress in the middle of the desert! This Arabian themed dinner came with belly dancers, Arabian musicians, and even a laser juggler that had the SPATEC logo projected out of his juggling batons. This was really a memorable night for all of us. All in all the event was very successful, with most people already wanting to know when and where the next one is going to be.

The icing on the cake was getting a very rare post-event day off in Dubai and getting to see the Burj Khalifa up close, and going up to the observation deck on the 124th floor! It was amazing seeing the sunset from up there, while look down on the city of Dubai below. I couldn’t believe that although being so high up, this was only the middle of the tallest building in the world
