Day 2: Clicky @ Global Travel Dubai Conference
Our first full day at The Global Travel Group Conference in Dubai – where do we start?!
Yesterday we woke up at sunrise to begin filming all the wonderful activities Dubai has to offer. This included Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, the spa at the Ritz-Carlton, Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates and the gold and spice souk.
CEO Oli said:
“There are some great photos already! We had such a busy day travelling between the golf – where people were teeing off from a floating golf green. There were also sea planes coming and going every 15 minutes – an absolutely fantastic sight. The Souks that sell spice, textiles and gold were full of amazing scents and colours.”
At Ski Dubai our directors were wearing shorts and flipflops in the snow to cool down from the 36°C Dubai heat. They also managed to photograph the shipping boats – a beautiful old part of Dubai.
And that was just the morning! After a quick lunch, we spent some time editing the photos and videos from our adventures that morning, while Oli and Sam had their director’s meeting.
By the time the early evening arrived, we were on our way to the Arabian Adventures Desert Safari and Welcome dinner at the Bedouin style Camp to enjoy a Lebanese banquet, henna art, shisha pipes and a bellydancing performance. We were greeted by camels and Arabic men wearing a dish dash – a truly incredible experience. We got some brilliant shots of the Land Cruisers coming over the sand dunes, as well as the sunset.
We’re also looking forward to our very own Sam and Oli’s talk on How to increase website traffic and footfall in a mobile world. But more on that in tomorrow’s blog!
