UAE - World Class Events supported DXB Live and WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017 in the safe and successful delivery of WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017 held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 15-18 October.
Project director John Adkins, senior project manager Brian Gowen and six project managers planned and oversaw the event build, which welcomed 1,300 competitors, 10,000 international visitors and 100,000 visitors from the UAE.
John Adkins, managing director of World Class said: “Make no mistake, the de-rig for World Skills Abu Dhabi 2017 was a mammoth undertaking! The scale of the event, size of the venue and large quantities of kit, equipment and exhibits and the timeframe we working to meant that nothing less than a precise and efficient plan would ensure a successful outcome. The way that Showforce switched on all of its departments to mobilise the numbers of crew involved, when they were busy with other projects, was really impressive.”
He added: “I personally really enjoyed this job, which was largely down to the people involved, it was a great team and everyone had a strong work ethic, this coupled with good personalities made for a great deal of camaraderie onsite a project imperative for successful execution. A clear and concise communication plan was implemented, from the WS Sector managers, to our zonal project managers to crew members etc which allowed us to deliver effectively and meet the deadline.”
Commenting on WCE’s performance, Aidan Jones, executive director of WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017 said: “It was great to meet and work with the World Class team during WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017. The focus that your team brought to getting the job done, their extremely positive attitude and the very professional way that you approached the project proved to be invaluable. So, thank you for the magnificent job that you did, I very much appreciated all of your help, support and advice.”
