In conjunction with the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, we recently held two exclusive agent events to celebrate our campaign, ‘Abu Dhabi: Your Extraordinary Story’.

The celebrations kicked off at Cork & Chroma in Brisbane, followed soon after by a second event at Cork & Chroma in Sydney. At each event, a group of 25 agents were treated to a delicious selection of Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine on arrival and had the chance to mingle before sitting down to paint an Abu Dhabi-inspired artwork.

Along with the Excite Holidays Marketing Team, two representatives from the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, were in attendance at both events. Jennifer Gaskin, Country Manager Australia & NZ was on hand in Brisbane, whilst Felicity Davis, Travel Trade & MICE Executive attended the Sydney gathering. The ‘eat, sip and paint’ event aimed to highlight the fantastic attractions on offer in Abu Dhabi, including the brand new Louvre Abu Dhabi, with both Jennifer and Felicity giving short presentations on all that the desert city has to offer.

The event was a huge success and showed agents why Abu Dhabi is deserving of a spot on the bucket list, and highlighted how accessible the destination really is for Australian travellers.
