Askaris’ Technical Director, John Greaves and OES’ CEO, Dr Maitland Hyslop attended the launch of Great Week in the UAE at the British Embassy in Dubai last night.

Askaris and OES were pleased to join British legends such as Jacques Vert and Paul Smith for an interesting and inspirational evening celebrating innovative and successful British businesses

Edward Hobart, British Consul General to Dubai and the Northern Emirates, said: “The inaugural GREAT Week last year in the UAE was a huge success, and we expect this year’s edition to follow suit.

“Britain’s world leading creative industries and the UAE’s huge ambition and impressive vision are a perfect marriage and one which has already played a part in some of the UAE’s most iconic landmarks.

“GREAT Week is all about encouraging this collaboration for the benefit of the UK and UAE.”

Askaris and OES’ participation continues by way of leading parts of the Middle East Rail Exhibition and Seminars, timed to coincide with GREAT Week.
