Excite, Abu Dhabi host top agents at Arabian-themed night

Excite Holidays in conjunction with the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, recently held two exclusive agent dinner events to celebrate their latest campaign, 'Abu Dhabi: One City. Endless Possibilities.'



Two groups of 25 top-selling agents across Melbourne and Sydney were invited to spend an evening enjoying authentic Arabian dishes, whilst hearing all about the exciting destination that is Abu Dhabi.


Jennifer Gaskin, the Country Manager from the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority was in attendance at both events, and had the pleasure of announcing the imminent opening of the highly anticipated Louvre Abu Dhabi, as well as talking about the incredible transformation of Saadiyat Island and a variety of must-see Abu Dhabi destinations.

Melbourne kicked off the festivities, with the group of agents descending upon the very popular Sezar Restaurant, an upmarket eatery in the heart of the CBD. Here, guests were treated to a never-ending supply of traditional ( and delicious!) Arabian-inspired dishes, including Kataifi Wrapped Lamb, Triple Cooked Potatoes, a Dessert Tasting Plate and much more.


Next on the list was Sydney, where the agents were treated to an exquisite feast at Alpha Restaurant, dining on Pita Bread, King Prawns, Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder, Doughnut Balls with Ice Cream, and plenty more.

At the end of the night and to thank them for their support, the agents were given luxe tea tins from T2, as well as traditional Arabian tea cups to take home, plus an Excite Holidays tote bag complete with a few travel essentials.
