Desert Gate serves the seven Emirates of the UAE, Oman and the state of Qatar.

Founded in 2004 Desert Gate evolved from being a supplier to local destination management companies, to a fully-fledged premium DMC within 10 years, with two offices, Dubai and Oman.

The company’s CEO Samir Tabbah says “I am lucky that some of my executive team had similar experiences to me at other large companies, and together we decided to pool these experiences and leverage this knowledge, as well as our entrepreneurial skills, into a business model and structure that is somewhat unique, efficient and very ‘premium’.

Desert Gate focuses on the high end. Whether it be a two day board meeting for six people, or a six day premium incentive for 40, larger conferences, product launches and events, DG has the experience, knowhow and contacts to successfully deliver. Adding value where needed, “EventsLab” is Desert Gate’s sister company which is dedicated to the production and management of events and has done so for both Government agencies and multinationals.

As Desert Gate operates cross the UAE, Oman and Qatar, they understand that event professionals may wish to have a two (or more) centre event. DG offers a seamless experience with one point of contact and one level of quality – Excellent.

CSR - Desert Gate is aware that success is not possible unless the environment and society are treated with care. As an active tourism business, DG operates responsibly towards the people and the environment in the destinations they serve. Furthermore, groups can ask for programmes that offer something back to the environment.

Gill Moulden, MD, Moulden Marketing comments: ‘We are delighted to add such a strong DMC who can operate across this region. The company is family owned and professionally managed, it is financially solid with well proven reliability and its top management are well known and respected in the travel industry. We look forward to opening up the whole of the UAE, Oman and Qatar to the MICE market with such an array of upscale programmes and facilities.’
