08 Nov M&I Forum Dubai
M&I Forum Dubai
This week we jetted off to the sun in Dubai to attend the M&I Forum. It was certainly a whistle stop tour however we packed an awful lot into the 2 days we were there!
These types of events are a great way for agencies and corporates to build on their network of suppliers, forge existing relationships and make new ones. You can’t deny it’s a little like speed dating, however in two mornings I had 26 meetings which in any other situation would have taken months to make that amount of contacts.
These trips are very much ‘work hard, play hard’ so we had the opportunity to choose an activity whilst there to enjoy a bit of Dubai. I was lucky enough to grab a place on the Seaplane trip and what a wow that was. Getting to see Dubai in all its glory from the air was a special moment. Seeing The Palm was really a sight to behold.
The evenings are all about networking too so our first night was spent at the Meydan Hotel with a fabulous view of the Dubai skyline over the racecourse and then the second night was a Halloween treat at the Lost Chambers in the Atlantis on the Palm.
A busy week but a highly productive one!
