COMBINING BUSINESS AND PLEASURE: NETWORKING FOR BAHRI OIL
Developing new contacts and establishing communication with others is an integral part of any company. Networking is about building long-term relationships and strengthening business connections. And that was exactly the goal for Bahri, a leading provider of crude oil transportation services in Saudi Arabia. Creating a welcoming reception with a corporate touch had become a new creative task for 2ID EVENTS.
The client already had a solid vision of their annual reception. All we needed to do is turn that into reality.

“Providing a pleasant atmosphere for the high-profile partners of Bahri Oil was key to a successful networking process ” ,
The whole event was supposed to be elegant and sleek. It was important to maintain a comfortable environment for such titans of the oil industry that would encourage communication and strengthen business connections.
During the concept development, we prepared a 3D project of the reception. It consisted of graphically designed images of the ballroom and outdoor area from different angles. You can discuss each aspect, but nothing gives a better understanding than visualization. A presentation included each small detail like a flower bouquet on the table and light from the projectors. It helped our client to feel the atmosphere of the future event and see the end result right away.
To make this vision a reality, we needed the perfect venue. The requirements were precise: a big bright ballroom that would fit 250 guests and a spacious outdoor territory. The customer already had one hotel in mind. However, after the coordinator on this case, Irina, and Bahri’s representative inspected the location, it was clear that it is in no way suitable for an event of such importance and scale. Luckily, the solution presented itself shortly: 4 Seasons Hotel in Dubai. The majestic ballroom with sophisticated decor elements, as well as a beautiful garden area near the water was a breath of fresh air. The new venue was approved, and it was time for the next step.
This stage took approximately 2 weeks. The objective was to produce and deliver a stage, as well as all the necessary sound and light equipment. The installations require a lot of time, and it is important to control each step. Our team visited the site several times to make sure that the stage meets all the requirements. Irina constantly informed the client about the progress and always stayed in touch.
For Bahri networking reception, it was the atmosphere that counted. Entertainment is not always a necessary component, and sometimes less is more. Focusing on small details was key to creating the right climate for the night.
- Flower Arrangements
To make the ballroom and outdoor territory look elegant, each cocktail table was decorated with flowers. An exquisite orchid capsuled in a cylinder glass vase added to a pleasantly calm atmosphere of the night.
- Branding Production
For such a big and successful company as Bahri Oil, branding production is a necessary attribute. 2ID EVENTS has prepared a banner using the main corporate colours: blue and orange. Branding cubes that were placed in the ballroom and the hall were an interesting artistic choice.
- Bahri Hashtag
The guests at the annual reception particularly loved a custom-made wooden hashtag. Placed in front of the water in the garden area, it looked sophisticated and unique. The construction began to glow in the night and the outdoor territory transformed into a majestic fairytale.
“Irina was very helpful, enthusiastic, and excited to work with us. Out of all the companies we contacted, she was the one that showed caring”,Abdulrahman Albiyari, Head of Events at Bahri
Working with Bahri Oil was a great pleasure and honour. The feedback from the client was what made it even better. Staying enthusiastic and excited, as well as always showing engagement and care for our customers are the main principles at 2ID EVENTS.
