The opening ceremony of 'Abu Dhabi Finance Week' for ADGM, took place on the 14th of November on the lawn of the iconic Emirates Palace. It was attended by His Excellency Sheikh Khaled as well as Ministers, Ambassadors and leaders of finance from around the globe.

We were very proud to be awarded this very important opening ceremony event that saw us transform the lawns of Emirates Palace with red carpets, bespoke structures, networking areas, media walls, gala dinner setups and of course a spectacular stage. West End Worldwide put on an incredible stage performance that included over 48 performers and 300 drones with a bespoke soundtrack composed by Ethan Lewis Maltby.

The smiles on everyone's faces are what makes this all worthwhile and with 800 people from the world’s top financial institutions in attendance and millions more watching from around the world we are very proud of the team that made this a stand-out success. 

We couldn't be prouder of the Opening Ceremony of 'Abu Dhabi Finance Week'.The audience were enthralled, impressed and it's safe to say 'wowed' as they witnessed a bespoke performance
