Smokin’ Pineapple at Nurai Island

GEM were tasked with finding a new and innovative venue along with a cool new theme for a client’s annual outing.

Every year they like to do something bigger and better! So this year the GEM team decided to take them to Nurai island off Saadiyat island.

Instead of the better known Burning Man theme, GEM decided to tailor this and make it their own by introducing the Smokin’ Pineapple.

The day started with coaches from Dubai taking them to a 5-star hotel in Abu Dhabi to enjoy some team building activities, watersports and a BBQ for the afternoon.

The evening’s events included fire shows, dancers, a great band flown in from Cyprus, Trio Frisson, two fantastic DJ’s, Flair bar shows and the burning of a large pineapple structure on the beach.

Guests were also treated to a fantastic BBQ with several different food stations, an array of cocktails and marshmallows to cook over the four open bonfires set up on the beach.

All logistics were strategically planned by the GEM team to ensure all guests were safely brought on and off the island and able to come and go as they pleased.

The event was a resounding success and enjoyed by everyone!

“I think I can speak in the name of the whole Social Team when I say that the AO 2017 was absolutely amazing and a huge success.

As usual, you and your team managed to create a unique event 100% personalized for our company. Performers, entertainment, décor, location everything was carefully calculated and close attention to detail was brought to it all. We will send a survey but so far the feedback was very positive!

Furthermore, we would like to thank each member of the GEM team who worked on our event and the ones who were with us on site. They were all extremely helpful, pro-active and professional.” – Events Coordinator

“I just wanted to echo the comments above and say we really appreciate all the work that went into putting this together – It was an outstanding success and the feedback has been extremely positive (I’m still getting emails raving about the event).” – Principal
