BPG Group holds 25th company offsite in Dubai

The BPG Group, an integrated marketing communications company, celebrated its recently refreshed and re-imagined business structure by staging its 25th annual staff offsite in the iconic surroundings of the QE2 floating hotel in Dubai.

The company recently announced its new look and stronger integrated and client-centric approach with the creation of three core businesses — BPG Orange, BPG Max and BPG Kuwait.

To celebrate the re-energised business, over 150 staff from its Dubai and Kuwait offices participated in two days of innovative and creative team-building exercises using the cruise liner-turned-hotel as its inspiration for filmmaking and problem-solving.

BPG Group CEO Avi Bhojani said: “This was the 25th time we have held our offsite and it has been the most successful and popular event to date. This year has helped to bring our fantastic creative, energetic and creative teams even closer together and reinforce the complementary but distinctive nature of the three marketing services brands within the BPG Group.”

He added: “The talent of our multinational team is at the heart of delivering successful solutions and a client-centric focus to our clients and working together to stimulate and generate innovative ideas is integral to the shared success of the BPG Group and our clients.”
