The much-anticipated event has attracted high-level support from reputed private organisations, international corporations and government institutions.
Benoit Montin, Managing Director of Corporate Games, told Emirates Business, “Corporate Games has been in the business for 27 years. We have welcomed more than 1 million participants worldwide in cities such as Melbourne, Cape Town, Istanbul, Annecy-Le-Vieux and many more. We are happy to have an office here in the UAE as the region is very dynamic and active when it comes to sports and to promote healthy lifestyle.” So far Corporate Games has hosted a range of successful multi-sports events in different cities globally.
Corporate Games are getting the support of Abu Dhabi Sports Council (ADSC), which is acting as a strategic partner in this high-profile event. In line with the motto of the event, ADSC is looking forward to endorse health and welfare within corporate community.

“For over the years that we have been organising sports events, the private organisations, government institutions, universities and other similar institutes are very supportive and open to the idea of establishing camaraderie among peers and healthy living through fun sport activities,” stated Montin.
He added, “We believe that through our events we could help our supporters to build and nurture their business relationships within and outside the organisation. Therefore, it is our aim to make sure that our multi-sport festivals bring value to our clients’ lives.”
