LONDON, 5 December 2022 — Reed & Mackay, a global service leader for corporate travel and event management, today opened its second office in the UAE (United Arab Emirates). Following the opening of its Dubai office in April 2016, the expansion into the UAE’s capital city of Abu Dhabi positions Reed & Mackay to meet client demand in the region.

Fred Stratford, Group CEO for Reed & Mackay, said, “As our global footprint continues to expand, we are focused on delivering consistency in service, product, and data to our clients worldwide. We are seeing real momentum in the Middle East as COVID-19 restrictions relax and demand continues to grow. Our team in Dubai has done an excellent job nurturing our growing client base in the region, and we are thrilled to be able to expand that service through our new Abu Dhabi office.”

Reed & Mackay’s Abu Dhabi office is situated in Masdar City, a planned-city project powered entirely on solar and other renewable energy sources. The location will support expansion in Reed & Mackay’s core sectors, including Finance, Law, and Marine and Offshore.

“The team in the UAE has proven they meet and exceed the expectations and needs of our travellers in the market,” said Jane Warren, Reed & Mackay’s CEO for the Middle East and Asia Pacific. “I’m delighted to bring the Abu Dhabi office officially online today and accelerate the growth of our operations in the UAE.”

“As a global engineering firm, it is invaluable for us to work with a travel management company that understands the need to deliver excellence to clients,” said Penspen Office Manager & Executive Assistant to EVP, Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific Regions, Marge Hernandez. “With our focus on energy projects, the UAE is a critical hub for us and Reed & Mackay’s new office in Abu Dhabi will provide additional travel and event support for us in one of our busiest regions.”

Today’s opening of Reed & Mackay’s Abu Dhabi office is the latest chapter in the company’s global growth story. Already in 65 markets, just last month Reed & Mackay acquired Spanish-based Atlanta Events & Corporate Travel.
