British Polo Day 2018
British Polo Day celebrated its 65th global event in Abu Dhabi. In advance of the first British Polo Day in New York this summer, the invitation- only event was delighted to be back in the United Arab Emirates, before completing the Middle Eastern leg in Dubai.
British Polo Day is an unparalleled platform celebrating the history and heritage of polo with a global community, bringing together the world’s top companies and key influencers.
It provides a platform for business in emerging and growth markets, giving partners enviable access to international contacts.
Returning to Abu Dhabi for the ninth time, British Polo Day pitted four teams against each other for the VistaJet Ghantoot Cup and the namesake Plate.
In the now legendary Camel Polo, the Hackett Cavalry Team were roundly beaten 7-1 by the Rosewood Abu Dhabi Guards Team.
VIP Guests then enjoyed a private dinner and a charity auction, which raised AED 100,000 Dirhams in aid of WAHA International, established by Her Highness Sheikha Shamsa bin Hamdan Al Nahyan in a response to the unacceptably high maternal and neonatal mortality rates in many parts of Africa and Asia.
“Our customers expect the most extraordinary experiences at the highest standards,” explains Ian Moore, Chief Commercial Officer at VistaJet. “Our customers’ passions become our passions and supporting them is a cornerstone of the VistaJet brand. In partnering on such opportunities with British Polo Day, we are able to continue to deliver second-tonone events to our community.”
