DUBAI, 20th January, 2016 (WAM) — Emirates Global Aluminium, EGA, will again support this year’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic, ODDC, as a sponsor of the European Tour event, which will take place at the Emirates Golf Club from 4th to 7th February.
“For EGA, as a proudly Emirati owned and operated business, it is a privilege to invest in the growth and development of the UAE economy. Our long-term support for the ODDC demonstrates our corporate commitment to the socio-economic development of the UAE as well as to promoting our country internationally,” said Khalid Essa Buhumaid, Senior Vice President, Communication and Government Relations and official spokesperson of EGA. “We are equally proud that EGA’s continuous sponsorship of the event has contributed substantially to the ODDC becoming the success it is today.”
Buhumaid added that EGA has traditionally used the ODDC as a high profile platform to strengthen relationships by hosting its partners from both the UAE and from further afield at the event.
“Every year, we invite our customers from around the world, many of whom have supported us since our inception in 1979, to attend the Omega Dubai Desert Classic as our guests,” he explained. “We also invite our local bankers, suppliers and other local business associates to the event as a gesture of our appreciation. This year we will again receive several hundred people and lavish our rich and warm Arabian hospitality upon them.”
