Dubai, April 22, 2017
Impressive, futuristic, unique - perfect for celebrating

The Bailliage celebrated World Chaîne Day with a lavish Gala Induction event that took place in the elegant ballroom - appropriately called the “Great Room” - of the W Hotel Dubai.

Members, guests and overseas visitors were treated to an impressive evening. We were transported to a futuristic atmosphere by the unique design of the hotel and ballroom. A champagne and amuse-bouches reception at an elegant bar specially installed for the event set the stage.

At the Induction Ceremony, Klaus Tritschler, Member of the Conseil d’Administration from Germany, inducted 50 plus Chaîne members and 30 new OMGD members. He was supported by Bailli Délégué Ian Fairservice who is also a Member of the Conseil d’Administration.

For the Gala Dinner, the carefully-selected Korean fusion menu accompanied by a perfect selection of wine pairing was both delightful and delicious.
