Our objective was to evaluate suitable venues close to DWTC Exhibition Halls in Dubai that were capable of holding an “open” party invitation for our major customers and VIPs during the Tobacco Exhibition in March 2014. The decision was quickly made, it was McGettigan’s Pub, located right next to the Exhibition Halls. The location has a downstairs outdoors terraced area which can be rented privately, as well as a modern sophisticated upstairs dining area with an attractive terrace which works very well for private entertainment and business networking. We met Beverly Chan, the Outlet Manageress at McGettigan’s, and presented her with an outline of our plans and requirements for the “open” customer party. It was a broad spec as we were not sure how many people would accept our invitation for cocktails and canapés post the Exhibition. Beverley was totally unfazed by our demands and presented us with a variety of menu and drink options. She guided us professionally and expertly through the pre planning of the quantities of beverages and food with a relaxed and do not worry smile – “my staff and I are here to serve you and your customers, we take the trauma of organizing away from you – you and your colleagues enjoy the function along with your customers”. Beverley and her staff delivered that commitment. The food was exceptionally good and plentiful and the drinks flowed throughout the evening without any delays. She set up several bar locations around the room which resulted in fast and efficient service and the food was beautifully presented on silver trays and always served with a smile. Everyone went away at the end of the evening very happy. Our thanks to Beverley and her team who worked very hard and professionally to ensure our guests were very well looked after. This venue is very good value for corporate entertainment and was a big success for our company and with our customers. We received many emails congratulating us on the event, the superb service and the convenience of McGettigan’s location right outside the Trade Centre. We will definitely go back there again for a Corporate or private event. Well done to Beverley and her team at McGettigan’s DWTC! Premium Tobacco
