Chairman's Message | Back to business after summer


Summer is over and school is back. Expats are back on the roads of Dubai and they are busy once more. After a summer of lower numbers at our events, the ABCD team and committee members have been working hard to build the calendar of events for the second half of the year.

Networking around sport

One of the nice things about Australians is the way we enjoy catching up around a sporting event. Apart from our usual lunches and breakfasts with key speakers there are a number of key sporting events coming up in the next few months!
AFL Grand Final - are your team going to make the final? We are expanding our annual family event to be at a larger venue. Even if your team doesn't make the final I always feel it is a good family day out.

Cricket - Australian vs Pakistan - we will be holding a few events with the touring Australia side who are taking on Pakistan in October.

Australian Socceroos - in the lead up to the AFC Asian Cup in Australia, January 2015, the UAE play host to Australia in a warm up match on 10 October. It free to come along so bring the family to help cheer on the green & gold. We will also be having a joint lunch with the entire Socceroos team in partnership with our Abu Dhabi friends on 8 October at the Crowne Plaza, Yas Island Abu Dhabi

Melbourne Cup - First Tuesday in November – an Australian institution! More details to follow soon but it is a great way to start the day and network afterwards.

Enhancing Membership and Sponsorships

The office and committee are continuing to enhance the offering we have for both members and sponsors. Please give us any feedback on how we can improve your membership and offer heightened value.

To give you an update on one of our major sponsors - Emirates/ Qantas have renewed their sponsorship of the ABCD and looking at the numbers many members are taking advantage of the discounts on offer. So next time you are about to book your ticket check out the code on the website and make the most of your membership discount.

Other sponsors are also renewing and seeing value in being part of the Australian Business Council of Dubai.Watch our regular updates and get involved, business is back and so is the ABCD.
