We were always told that summer is a period of downtime, reflection, planning and relaxation, this could not be any further from the truth in the world of a Creative Entertainment Agency. Summer in the UAE is commonly known as pitch season, a time where creativity thrives and deadlines are short, a time where the future is conceptualized and the unknowns are vast, a time to get your A%& into gear!
Over the last few months, the agency has expanded exponentially both in personal and in territories. Having signed a Joint Venture agreement with our incredible partners in Qatar, Trinity Talent Qatar, we now have a physical and legal presence in a new country, and this is only the beginning. Having already successfully delivered over 8 events in 2 months, with a brand-new team and location, it is something that we feel very proud of.
Last month gave the Dubai office a chance to support our long-term friends at Informa Connect as their Entertainment Partner for the Middle East Event Show 2022. This was the first edition of the show, back live again since the pandemic and it was incredible to go back and see some familiar faces as well as a bunch of new ones too. We provided an EPIC opening ceremony to the awards show, in which the agency had 2 nominations to look forward to. DB was a shortlisted nominee for “Supplier of the Year” and our Head of Entertainment, Ryan, was a shortlisted nomination in the category of “Young Achiever of the Year.” Unfortunately, we did not get supplier of the year however evening being a shortlisted nominee shows we are on the right track. Ryan was the proud award winner for the Young Achiever of the Year award, which was celebrated in true DB style into the early hours of the morning.
There have been some awesome projects and work by the team over the last few months and we are very excited to be producing Kids Shows for Modesh World 2022 which will run for 2 consecutive months from August onwards. Be sure to go check out the new and improved Modesh World, especially if you have kids!
DB have also officially branched into exclusive artist management by securing the signature of David Kominek, a photography / videography / editing extraordinaire. Exclusivity has always been part of the internal conversations and we look forward to bolstering our exclusive artists roster as we head into the new season of 2022/2023 and beyond!
Since wrapping up a massive volume of work during the final 3 months of Expo 2020, the agency has not taken its foot of the gas and will continue to push the boundaries of creativity, work with the best talent in region and the globe.
We have a brand-new website, so keep an eye out on our socials and website for constant updates from the DB team.
