The event was a chance for senior executives and employees alike to socialise and explore the exotic nature and beauty of the desert on a sunset while enjoying a wide choice of adventure activities such as dune bashing, camel riding, sandboarding, henna painting and quad biking.
Apart from the thrilling rides, participants were fascinated with various entertainment such as dance performances – the tanoura, fire and belly dancing show, under the stars, while indulging in a BBQ dinner buffet.
