The brief

Globe was tasked with putting together a comprehensive incentive and team building trip for a group of 200 to Dubai, staying at the five star Atlantis the Palm.

What we did

The group had a 4 night stay at this incredible resort, and all took part in a number of events including:

Surf ‘N’ Turf Relay Race

Surf ‘N’ Turf is a one-of-a-kind sporting event involving running, swimming and paddling. In what has become a race like no other, this adventure style event is considered to be a great test of teamwork and fitness. The teams competed against each other for first place in a fun, highly energetic and challenging relay race course that consisted of swimming, running and paddling.

I’m so glad that we spoke to Globe about this years’ incentive trip. We’d have never thought about anything this special, and it was a truly brilliant experience for everyone.

Beach Volleyball Tournament

Sun, sand, sets and spikes! This activity went down a storm (though the weather was anything but!). Teams played their way through a knock-out style beach volleyball tournament to reach the top and gain bragging rights of being the best.

Sand Sculpting

For those that considered themselves more creative than athletic, this was a great activity. It can be a tough activity, but the teams really got into and produced some great results. Teams were given a range of kitchen utensils (rather than sand scultping tools – that would be too easy!) to help build and carve up their creations.

In addition to the group activities, the group enjoyed an interactive meeting in the Atlantis Ballroom. The room can accommodate gala dinners for up to 2000 guests. It also has direct access to the Royal Terrace which was used as a break out spot (and has some fantastic views).

Each evening, the group divided into smaller teams and were able to try a number of different restaurants including the acclaimed Japanese restaurant Nobu, the fantastic Seafire steakhouse (which one diner said served the best steak they had ever had!) plus the Italian, Ronda Locatelli serving a wide variety of pasta and pizza options.


All in all, the event was a great success.

It was nothing short of superb. The venue has such a lot to offer and everything was managed brilliantly by Globe.
