Thank you for supporting our Biggest Breakfast of the Year

The Melbourne Cup has been run and won for another year as Vow And Declare came out on top. The Australian horse pipped the field in a thrilling finish to the race that stops the nation. 

The signature event saw over 200 ABCD members and guests don their racing best and head to the Four Seasons Jumeirah for a fabulous morning filled with fun, flare and fashion. 

As always, the event was proudly supported by the Victorian Government.  We thank Kassem Younes and his team from Global Victoria for continuing to sponsor this incredible event and giving us the opportunity to showcase the best of Victoria.

We welcomed back Lexus Al-Futtaim as event sponsor for the second year.  Once again, we were left in awe at the latest Lexus offering with the LX Black Edition on display in the midst of the event.  For those who opted to sit inside the car and experience the soft leather seats and high-tech interior you’ll know what we mean. We’re also pretty jealous of our prize winners who get to take the car on an extended test drive for a weekend away to the Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa in Abu Dhabi. The stunning Jumeirah property is a magnificent desert resort perfectly placed for a luxury weekend escape.

Hopefully you took the time out to take a few happy snaps on the day at the Milk Chocolate Photobooth.  The addition of the extra accessories made for a few funny photos and we thank Milk Chocolate Property Concierge for their sponsorship & support. In addition to the photobooth, we also had our wonderful photographer Leoni Milano clicking away on the day and you can now view these photos on our website (click here to view them). 

We are thankful for the ongoing support of our media partners Dubai Racing and Dubai Eye 103.8 who have both been partners of the event for many years and always do a fabulous job capturing the best of the morning. The Dubai Racing footage from the morning can be viewed here

The Melbourne Cup Long Breakfast captures the true spirit of the Australian Racing carnival because our wonderful guests take the time to find the perfect outfit bringing great style, grace and glamour to the morning.  The fashions on the field competition is always a hotly contested event and we extend our thanks to everyone who participated and a huge congratulations to the winners. We are especially grateful for the support of event partners who provided amazing prizes from Knights & Lords, DuSoul, The Mode, Georg Jensen and Bliss Flower Boutique.

A big congratulations also to our raffle prize winners.  Once again Emirates Airline and Emirates Holidays were proud supporters of the raffle providing the main prize of a trip for two to Porto, Portugal.  We managed to sample a little bit of Porto by offering some delicious Graham’s Port from MMI, and now that Emirates Airline fly direct to Porto there’s no excuse for you not to go and sample some as well.

Many thanks to our raffle partners; Emirates Airline, Emirates Holidays, Lexus Al-Futtaim, Jumeirah Al Wathba, ARN & Dubai Eye 103.8, Six Senses Spa Dubai, 2birds, Verve and Dubai Festival City.

We would also like to thank our media partner Business Dubai Magazine, beauty partner Corrie Elle Artistry, transport partner Careem, table sponsors, Global Victoria, IRL, HFW, CBD and 2Birds

Thank you to our event hosts, Chris McHardy and Brandy Scott and special guests Maz Hakim and Laura King and a massive thank you to the Australian Business Council Members and Guests for supporting the event. We strive to keep everyone connected both professionally and socially and we look forward to welcoming you to all future events.

All the best, 
Jen, Lisa and Nikki
