inVOYAGE 2016… a reflection

Last week rocked!  Our third edition of inVOYAGE ran, this time in Dubai, and we had an amazing few days.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of our inVOYAGERS that supported the event this year.  We are a community and the true measure of our success is your success.

inVOYAGE is about bringing the most amazing creators of incentives and experiential events together with the finest and the most personalized luxury and lifestyle brands from throughout the world.

To create and continually develop a focused community of ever-changing visionaries and game-changers in the luxury incentive and events sector takes collaboration and it is with great friends in this sector (you know who you are!) that we are delivering on this vision.

For those of you who weren’t there, inVOYAGE took place at the new Palazzo Versace Dubai with delegates being flown in by Emirates. We crunched two mornings of education, well over 2,000 one-to-one meetings and three evenings of incredible networking.


We owe a great thanks to our sponsors…

Palazzo Versace Dubai… Sandra and her team far exceeded expectations, creating an event experience like no other with incredible personalised service from the entire team, and all this in the pre-opening stages of one of the world’s finest luxury brands in hospitality.

Gulf Dunes DMC… Oussama and the team supported all our airport and function transfers, our post-event fams in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman as well as co-sponsoring our finale evening at Nikki Beach Resort & Spa.

Emirates… Dhriti’s international team worked with our friends at BI WORLDWIDE to fly-in delegates from dozens of countries from all over Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia.

Matrix AVE… Rajesh’s experienced team supported our conference production and staging onsite, always on-hand to help and go the extra mile.

The Meydan Hotel, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa, Dubai Parks & Resorts, Dubai Business Events and the Cavalli Club… who made the evenings a fabulous celebration of the burgeoning luxury events sector in Dubai, adding the wow to inVOYAGE and most importantly bringing delegates together.

Michael Jackson, SongDivision, Event StoryBoard, Kiss the Frog, First & Ten Productions and #Hashtag… who all facilitated our education programme and videography onsite (more to be released next week).

Oh dear!!!

Oh dear!!!

Feedback has been amazing and thought provoking with some great ideas and learnings for future editions.

We all move forward stronger, with new business opportunities, ideas, friends, collaborators and supporters.

We are already getting excited about inVOYAGE 2017 and places will now have to be limited so that we are able to focus on driving the quality of the experience ever higher.


If you’re interested to be a part of inVOYAGE 2017, please let me know.

Kindest regards, Richard
