After a delicious buffet lunch, the Film Crew headed over to Dolphin Bay on a golf buggy for more key shots then sunbathed and drank pineapple cocktails. Oli and Sam attended the business ‘Speed Dating’ sessions and captured some fantastic footage. There was a lot of valuable networking going on and some great connections made.
By sunset we all made our way down to The Palace Downtown which was incredible. There were twinkly lights wrapped around the palm trees and we had a view over the river to the fountains, which light up in time to the music. We took some great photography for Travel Weekly – including some snaps of the amazing Burj Khalifa which looked spectacular with lights flashing – a photographer’s dream!
Everyone really enjoyed The Palace and the food was a hot buffet of salads, king prawns and some barbecued meats. The delegates were awarded with a well-earned certificate and crystal trophy. After the awards ceremony, the Clicky team got the last bus back and made their way to the nightclub for a fun night of dancing. Our videographer / photographer Rebecca rapped to Rhianna & Eminem Love the Way you Lie – a great rendition, maybe even better than the artists themselves!
Keep a look out for our Day 4 blog – coming out tomorrow.
