Monthly Meeting May 2024 Koi Seafood Restaurant Located in the vibrant heart of China Town, Koi Seafood Restaurant, Downtown Dubai’s premier seafood destination, hosted our Les Clefs d’Or UAE monthly gathering for May. Our General Secretary, FRANCIS OWOR, set the tone for a memorable evening, which was then inaugurated by our President, Amado Silveti. Ibrahim Al Saleh, the visionary behind Koi, stepped up to express his dedication to the art of hospitality. Mustafa Haj the Operations Director, led us on an exploratoire journey through Koi’s luxurious spaces, each revealing its own unique and hidden delights. The culinary experience was a masterful blend of Asian flavors. Tarlan Musaev CEO of Dubai Yachts LLC, along with his distinguished yacht crew, introduced us to their exquisite collection of yachts and bespoke services. A momentous occasion was marked as Davron Khabibov, Concierge at Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, was awarded his Dubai Concierge Group membership, signifying a significant milestone in his journey with Clefs d’Or. Under the commendable initiative of Joshua Rudy, Concierge Supervisor at Atlantis the Royal, our group organized a clothing donation drive to support the unsung heroes of Dubai, the construction workers. Our First Vice President, Allwyn D’Cunha, orchestrated an engaging Kahoot quiz to test our knowledge of UAE Concierge services. Congratulations to Artem, Michal Beneda, and Daryl Bismanos for their triumphant win. President Amado Silveti shared captivating stories from the UICH Bali Congress, complemented by a video presentation from Alexander Kasparov that encapsulated the essence of the event. Looking ahead, our next rendezvous is set for June 26 at the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, where we will convene for our Grand Educational Day and General Assembly.
