Above, the Sofitel Downtown Dubai
Good morning to all of you. We hope you are well! It has been more than a year since we successfully launched Servicexcellence – Business Consulting and Development. It was about time to celebrate the success and give back to those who supported the company since the beginning. We recently held our first cocktail reception with corporate clients, friends, and family. We wanted to thank everyone who was involved in the growth and journey of our training company in Dubai, and the location, setting, and atmosphere were important to us.
We, therefore, recently held our first cocktail reception with corporate clients, friends, and family. We wanted to thank everyone who was involved in the growth and journey of our training company in Dubai, and the location, setting, and atmosphere were important to us.
After reviewing a lot of bars and lounges in Dubai, we finally found Above, at the Sofitel Downtown. We contacted them via e-mail first and were invited to a food tasting based on our requirements, budget, and expectations, the week after.
Navneet, the bar manager, and the head chef served us little delicatessen such as: Edamame, beef skewers, shrimp tempura, fruits, sweets and more… The variety of food was great, the taste even better, We agreed on a date and time and set the event in stone.
A lot of e-mails were exchanged during the week prior to the event, and Navneet was a great assistance and a very reliable representative of the hotel’s bar & lounge. We felt comfortable and relaxed, prior, during and after the actual event.
We expected about 35-40 guests and were offered a dedicated area. Once guests arrived Navneet’s team started with the drinks pass around. They even made non-alcoholic mocktails for our local guests. The food was served during the half-time of the event. It was great. The more people arrived, the better the atmosphere was.
The bar’s colours (blue, purple, white) did not only represent our corporate colours, they also enhanced the overall ambience and made everyone feel comfortable.
The event was a great success. Next year will be celebrated on a boat – if not we would host the event at the Above again!
Thank you, SE
