  • Just a quick note to say thank you, to you, Adeel & all the guys for your work & support on the UKC tournament at Coca-Cola Arena last week.

    The event was a huge success and could not have gone so safely and smoothly with out your teams support.

    I should imagine Adeel & the lads never want to see another net in the life, but I must congratulate them for taking control from a bad supplier, and producing a finished product, that cricketing superstars Chris Gayle & Kevin Peterson thought was amazing and a real challenge.

    Myself & SM Productions could not have done it without you, and are already looking forward to working with you again on the next project

  • As things are calming down a little in the run up to Christmas, I wanted to drop you a brief note of thanks for your continued support on all of our projects.

    From my side, Ernesto and Hari have done a fantastic job here at the new Al Hosn Festival and I know that Matt and Howard are really pleased and grateful for their support. I know that Mick and Jake are equally complimentary regarding Praveen and Edwin’s work at Nurai Island.

    Please could you pass on our sincere thanks to them and to all of your crew – there are far too many to name.

    The feedback from all of the clients has been 100% positive and I think we can all be proud of what has been achieved in such a short period of time. The Al Hosn Festival is gathering momentum through images and video shared on Social Media and hosting over 3,000 visitors a day – so, again this is a fantastic result for all of us.

    Thanks again; I look forward to working with you all very soon on upcoming projects.

  • I would like to offer an assessment and a thank you to Gulf Crewing Company for their efforts throughout the build, show and de-rig of the DIFC 10th Anniversary Event.

    In my experience, operating a site of this size whilst the area is utilized by the public on a daily basis is a constant battle. The GCC crew not only alleviated that burden from my workload, but left me feeling assured that the site would operate in a clean and safe manner when I was not able to be present. 
I would like to praise GCC for the efforts in site management and also for the professional show mentality to help our finale shine with twenty crew harnessed on the roof’s edge to deliver the pixel rain which was only rehearsed once with four crew.

    Many thanks to all from GCC involved both onsite and at their head office managing the operational aspects.

  • GCC have been assisting in all Flash Entertainment events for the past seven years providing a lot of manpower that makes our events happen. Nigel and his staff provide complicated shows that I have ever had to the pleasure to be a part of, UAE 44th National Day at Zayed Sport City here in the capital Abu Dhabi. Over the course of 3,259 shifts and nearly 39,000 man-hours a small army of production and site crew labored tirelessly to produce a truly world class celebration.

    The “Men in Black” did an amazing job of supporting this events on so many levels and I would not hesitate to endorse them.

  • Just wanted to say a big thank you for the crew that was provided to work on props for this year’s DWC. They did a sterling job and should be proud of their achievements – as well as their ability to put up with me barking orders at them every 30 seconds.

  • “Through out two and half months of being onsite for the build of Cavalia show at QasrAlHosn, GCC haven proved not only their crew will make it easier on us but also stepped in forward to provide us with an experienced stable hands. GCC were very accommodating of our requests even the late ones, we always have an answer in regards to whatever kind of crew we are requesting whether they were general crew, riggers and production. not only the crew were speaking decent English but also they were well accommodative of any kind of new requests. even when requested a big number of crew they always come in group and organize as per their work tasks.

    Among working with Horses, Dirt and production equipment, GCC made an easier transaction to provide such a smooth delivery of an international event”

  • I am writing to ask you to thank all the people who worked for Kayam during our time at Abu Dhabi.

    Every one of them was not only hard-working but also a pleasure to have around. We found that the days went very quickly when your crew were helping us.

  • In a region where there is no shortage of companies who claim to possess similar expertise, GCC have proven that there is more to professional crewing in the UAE than putting a shirt on a monkey and calling him experienced.

    As Production and Site manager on many events it is a terrific asset to have a crewing company that I can rely upon and whose team I can trust to undertake each task with enthusiasm, resourcefulness, hard-work & commitment. Being Scots I am rather difficult to impress however I can say that I have been consistently impressed by the high standards to which GCC aspire and the extent to which international event industry working practices, training and continual improvement form an important part of the company’s philosophy. Plus of course having Nigel on site always brings a certain level of confidence, calm and humour to the proceedings…

    As for the rest of the crew…you may just want to police the pies a bit in site catering at lunchtime…;o)

    I look forward to working with your crew again in the near future.

  • I was the production director for the Official Ceremony of the 40th anniversary of the UAE in 2012

    This was one of the largest events ever undertaken in the UAE in Sheik Zayhed stadium inAbu Dhabi

    It involved over 1000 cast and 150 international crew as well as enormous support from local suppliers.

    Gulf Crewing provided all our local labour both skilled riggers, plant drivers etc as well as general labour.

    Nigel Beaton oversaw the provision of this labour without which this show would not have been possible.

    He and his company were efficient, respectful and hard working. Nigel was amazingly attentive and helpful using his local knowledge in all areas of our production needs.

    Gulf Crewing are now helping be install a major cultural show in Abu Dhabi.

  • Gulf Crewing- the difference between local labour and skilled crew’

    Gulf Crewing are my crew of choice- I know that I will be able to get the job done quickly, efficiently and on time with a crew I can trust to do what needs done, when it needs done.’

    I have worked with Gulf Crewing on a variety of large complex jobs and have been impressed with their range of skills and pride in their work. They arrive on time, work hard, communicate well, problem solve and don’t leave until the job is done properly- and they smile!’

    ‘Gulf Crewing and Jane and Tony are a great team!’

    Each and every person in Gulf Crewing brings a professionalism to jobs which reflects in the high standard of work, the efficient, flexible way it is carried out and the good feedback that comes from happy clients’

    I could go on and on but I don’t want to be too over the top

    Gulf Crewing are damn good and it has been a pleasure and a privileged to have worked with each and every member of the team and to see the company grow

  • Gulf Crewing were engaged to provide all of the local crew support for the National Day Celebrations at Burj Al Arab

    Working across 3 sites , the firework preparation zone and mounting site , the Jumeirah Beach and the Burj Al Arab itself the mission statement was very much to implement the show to the highest possible standard whilst minimising the impact on the day to day running of the hotel and its high profile guests

    Gulf crewing helped to achieve this vision by providing efficiently managed and well presented crew who were seamlessly integrated into the working environment.

  • Since it’s inception in 2013, WRG have successfully produced and managed the Qasr al Hosn Festival in Abu Dhabi. The 2014 Festival was an unprecedented success; with over 63,000 visitors over a ten day period in February; receiving hugely positive feedback on all aspects of content and production.

    The technical and infrastructure requirements of such a large site are immense and complex – not least the on-site delivery and execution. In addition to the overall production, WRG were also responsible for the site preparation and landscaping.

    Having supported WRG on the inaugural Festival and on numerous equally large and successful projects in the interim months, Gulf Crewing were our first choice to supply the general and support crew for the 2014 Festival.

    We feel that our trust was very well placed. Gulf Crewing provided an exceptional core team led by their chief, Rahul. They supported our Site Management team throughout the project, fulfilling key roles such as mechanical plant operation and the distribution of materials, scenery and props.

    During intense periods of the build the team would expand up to 27 crew and overall the Gulf Crewing boys contributed over 5,500 Man / Hours towards the success of the project.

    Nothing was ever a problem for Rahul and his team, from sweeping sand to wading into the lake to help hoist the dhow sails and then on to the inevitable site clear-up of all the debris and waste that gets left behind.

    I have enormous admiration for the Gulf Crewing boys; for their ability to get the job done and work under their own initiative. They are often the unsung heroes on projects when theirs is a significant contribution to the overall success, so I hope that the boys found working on the Festival every bit as rewarding and enjoyable as the technical team did.

    I look forward to working with them all soon.
