MICE in the jungle at the green planet

Dubai's indoor bio-dome holds team-building sessions and eco workshops as part of its appeal as a MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) destination


Dubai, UAE – Groups of people working together to overcome the challenges of the jungle is the stuff of Hollywood survival films. But now Dubai’s tropical haven, The Green Planet, is to offer that very scenario as part of its new corporate team-building workshops.

The indoor bio-dome, which is home to more than 3,000 exotic animals and plants, has opened a new area that is dedicated to hosting MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) events.

The activities include The Green Planet team-building sessions. Groups are split into teams and sent into the tropical rainforest on scavenger hunts in which they solve puzzles related to sustainability and the environment. The sessions have a genuine wild side with animal interaction supervised by professional guides.

The Green Planet will also offer workshops focusing on environmental corporate social responsibility (CSR) - an area of increasing importance to the region’s small businesses and multinational corporations.

Victoria Lynn, General Manager – Leisure & Entertainment said: “We’re excited to reveal the incredible new event space at The Green Planet and showcase the unique CSR and team-building workshops we have available.

“Our 2020 vision is to position Meraas L&E as the ultimate meeting and live events destinations, and we look forward to bringing this to life across all of our assets.”

The MICE market is a multi-billion dollar industry. With its wide selection of leading hotels, restaurants and conference halls, the UAE has long been considered one of the region’s leading MICE destinations. And now The Green Planet is introducing an exotic twist to the nation’s offering.

The Green Planet team-building sessions are tailor-made for groups of 20 – 500 people and last between two and three hours. The sessions include an awards ceremony and certificates for winning teams, with team photo opportunities available.

Corporate team-building is a vital part of the business environment as a method of boosting creativity, collaboration and productivity among employees.

Another key area of corporate investment is CSR, with billions spent on social and environmental goals as a means of improving a company’s brand and attracting top talent.

The Green Planet’s Eco CSR Workshops feature such topics as creating a sustainable workplace and being part of Dubai’s eco-friendly community. Meanwhile, The Green Planet Terrace is the perfect outdoor setting for live events that caters to the local corporate market and international MICE customers. Built to resemble a rainforest, this evergreen space can accommodate groups of up to 500 people and offer food and beverage packages, making it the ideal venue for cocktail receptions, product launches and gala dinners.
