Your key to the Middle East and beyond!

OUR STRENGTH

A Little Bit of History

In March 2016, Ahmed set out and founded Claviger Middle East, an extended Sales, Marketing, PR & Event Management company serving luxury standalone, multinational hotel chains, entertainment destinations and destination tourism boards who are interested in growing their market share from the niche outbound GCC market.

Knowing that surrounding himself with a professional and experienced team was the key to success, Ahmed made it a point to find the very best and most passionate hospitality professionals in the region.

Since that March day, Ahmed has put together a team that boasts over 100 years of hospitality experience in the market. The team has built trusted relationships with key partners all over the region and have become one of the most well known and highly respected representation companies in the market.
