Gulf Bridge International (GBI) held a corporate family day at the InterContinental hotel in Doha. This is the second year in a row that GBI has hosted a family day for all staff members. The event was very well attended by families including Mr. Ahmed Mekky, Board Member and CEO of GBI who was there with his family.

The day was full of team building activities, such as volleyball and football matches. There were clowns, face painters and games for the children. In addition, every employee won a prize in a lucky draw which was held at the end of the day. The prizes ranged from business class flights and accommodation in five star hotels, to vouchers for prestigious shops and hotel spas. Everyone agreed it was a wonderful day out.

“Today was great opportunity to get together and to thank everyone for their support in preparing GBI for our launch” commented Mr. Mekky.

Gulf Bridge International (GBI) is the Middle East’s first privately owned submarine cable operator. The GBI Cable System, which will launch later this year, will utilize the latest subsea fiber cable technology, connecting Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the UAE to each other and provide onward connectivity to Europe, Africa and Asia.
