Family fun day a resounding success

Fitness First - The Meadows, Dubai played host to hundreds of expats on Friday as GWM joined forces with numerous local businesses to host a Health, Wealth and Happiness Spectacular.

As we celebrated the return of cooler climes in the UAE, guests were treated to a wide selection of entertainment and activities. Capoeira lessons and face painting were big hits with the kids, while the Reggaeton and Float:UAE were popular with the adults, many of whom were more than thankful of the free coconut water and health food on offer to help them refuel!

Gemma Frankland, Head of GWM Global Partners said of the event,

“The cooler temperatures in Dubai allow residents to indulge in a more active, outdoor life that just isn’t possible in the height of summer.

We wanted to put on an event for the community that not only promoted such lifestyles, but that showcased local businesses too. ”

Many local businesses were in attendance, showcasing their products alongside GWM. Find out more about some of our our event partners by clicking the options below.
