My Best Booking

This month Anwar Abu Monssar, manager of the Abu Dhabi branch of Dubai-based DMC, Net Tours, shares details of his best booking with ATN

“My best booking was for a special birthday celebration for one of my top Russian customers.

We arranged for a small group of four passengers to enjoy a special evening of entertainment at the Emirates Palace, and an emotional desert safari in the dunes of Abu Dhabi.

For the evening’s entertainment, we arranged a large stage with lights, and we called in a group of exclusive entertainers and a special MC.

We had a troupe of fire players, and we flew in some of the country’s professional musicians, including a singing band, salsa and belly dancers, and a percussionist.

The celebration finished with a laser light display.

The entire one-evening event was worth US $40,000.

The booking was not only special because of the amount of money involved, because we often secure bookings worth much more than that.

It’s the fact that it was for only four people that definitely makes it one of my best bookings yet.â€
