The beginning of our creation came to life from a 50th birthday present in 2005.
The founder Ian Sutherland from Melbourne Australia was asked by his wife Katherine how he wanted to celebrate his 50th birthday. After much thought Ian’s reply was that he would love to go to the 10th Anniversary of the world horse racing cup in Dubai. Ian along with 5 of his friends arranged the trip of a lifetime.
Dubai at the time was creating a tourist mecca of hospitality, business centres and attractions that had never been seen before. During the trip Ian could see that this vibrant Middle Eastern city was all about attracting tourism, hospitality and business well after the oil had gone. Ian and Katherine’s working careers had similar paths in hospitality, event management, international trade, containerisation & freight forwarding. They had worked with many international visitors and expatriates over years and from all walks of life. They were aware of the fact that regardless of culture or nationality – the one common theme to ‘welcome’ was to “meet, eat, greet and if required offer a place to sleep”
