5 Best Event Planners in Dubai

Whether it’s a wedding or corporate event, having a talented and reliable event planner is important to ensure that everything runs smoothly. It’s a good thing there are a lot of wonderful event planners in Dubai you get to choose from. 

In this article, we listed our top picks for event planners in Dubai. We also answer some common questions such as the price for the service of event planners and tips in picking the best one for your event. 

 How much does it cost to hire an event planner in Dubai? 

Event organizing doesn’t really have a set price. It will really depend on what you’ve agreed upon with the event planner. 

The price will be based on the type and size of the event, what services are included, and the event planner you pick. 

Still, say for a wedding, the rates of a wedding organizer can range from 6500 AED to 15000 AED. It will depend on the expertise of the event organizer you choose. 

You can inquire about pricing structures and customization. Some planners offer varying levels of coordination to fit your budget and services needed. 

The Top Event Planners to Look Out For 

We assessed the following event planners based on these criteria: 

Accessibility – We included event planners that are easily reachable and available.
• Operating Hours – We checked their operating hours so you don’t have to. We looked into their consistency and how late or early they open. 
• Responsiveness – Of course, we made sure that they’re accessible through their communication channels for questions and other concerns. 

Execution – We then analyzed how well they execute events. We looked into their flow, ability to have a contingency plan, and many other factors related to overall performance.
• Expertise – We checked their years of experience, coordination, and talent in handling events
• Efficiency – We also looked into how organized they are in planning. 

Professionalism – The professionalism and attitude of the event planning team is also taken into consideration because this is just as important as talent.

Client Satisfaction – We also assessed previous clients’ feedback to see if they were satisfied by the event planners.

3. PROFESSIONALISM★★★★☆ (4/5)
4. CLIENT SATISFACTION★★★★★ (5/5)

Splash N Bounce was established in 2008, so they’ve been in the event planning industry for quite some time. Their consistent great service and established clientele must be why they’ve built a solid reputation as an event management company. 

They can handle mostly corporate events and private parties. From what we’ve seen, they’re very well-versed in both. 

For corporate events, they have organized more than 5000 events already. It’s also very convenient because they own over 45 products and 43 services as well, so you don’t need to deal with separate vendors. 

They have extensive experience and have handled corporate events for big companies like Skydive Dubai, Gold’s Gym, Subway, and Vopak. 

What we like about this service provider is that they have a deep understanding of what their clients want and help their visions come to life. 

They’re attentive to all kinds of details and help their clients get the desired event that’s fun, safe, and cost-effective. Examples of the events they handle are the following: 

  • Brunch entertainment 
  • Store opening 
  • Family fun days 
  • Workshops 
  • Graduations and prom
  • Market day 
  • Team building 

They also do private parties and have a wide range of packages you can choose from. They have pool packages, garden packages, and themed packages. 

In our opinion, they work best for kids’ parties based on their products. They can offer face painting, balloon twisting, art activities, popcorn machines, candy floss machines, photo booths, and even magic shows. 

They’re pretty inactive on social media, however, which is unfortunate because it’s a great way to market their products. They’re also a bit hard to contact online, so it might be best to go to them directly or give them a call.  

Pros

  • Over 14 years of experience
  • Own over 45 products and 43 services

Cons

  • Hard to contact online
  • Inactive on social media
  • Closes early

After hiring Splash N Bounce to organize my daughter’s Birthday Party, I can now understand why they are one of the long-standing companies in this industry for the past 15 years in Dubai!

Memories Events Management was established in 2012, making them relatively younger than competitors. 

Still their impressive portfolio of 236 projects, over 63 satisfied clients, and 31 awards garnered in a span of four years make us think that they’re an events management company worth a spot in our list anyway. 

They have extensive experience in creating, designing, implementing, and managing corporate events. What usually happens first, based on our experience, is a detailed consultation with them so they understand the main goals and expectations of the event. 

From there, they start giving you ideas and pegs. Working with them is great because they’re very committed, creative, and passionate at what they do. 

Their passion and talent has led them to work with big brands such as BMW, Nissan, Cartier, Mcdonalds, Nature Valley, and Shell, among others. 

We particularly like that they’re very versatile and cater to all sizes of events. They can help with small corporate meetings or big conferences or events. 

However, being closed on weekends is a huge downside, in our opinion, since a lot of events fall on weekends. Still, if this is not a factor in your planning, they can be a good option for you. 

Pros

  • Multi-awarded in just 4 years
  • Very creative, gives a lot of ideas and pegs
  • Has lots of experience working with big corporations
  • Versatile when it comes to size

Cons

  • Younger compared to other event planners
  • Closed on weekends

Client Reviews:

They operate in a professional way that puts collective goals ahead of individual glory

What makes Memories Events stand out is that they’re team-driven and they operate in a professional way that puts collective goals ahead of individual glory. They continue to succeed and rise to any challenge that they might face! Keep it up! -Sari Bou Karroum

Muse Events is a boutique wedding and event planning company that has over 8 years of experience in event management, which is still a bit younger compared to most event companies. Still, we included them because of their impressive portfolio and keen attention to detail.

Client Reviews: 

Went above and beyond to make it everything we wanted and more

Faisal and I were meant to have our wedding in April 2020, our experience at the time was so smooth and enjoyable, Sandra just made it so fun and easy. A few weeks before the wedding COVID turned the world upside down and we had to cancel, Sandra was a rock, she first and foremost made sure we were okay, and then handled everything from A-Z. A year later we finally had our celebration, Sandra went above and beyond to make it everything we wanted and more, apart from having great style, she handled everything (our selves included haha) and made it happen despite all the difficulties. Acquaintance, turned wedding planner, turned life long friend, we’ll never forget our special night and what Sandra did for us. -Faisal & Zeina

Expectations are always exceeded with the creativity, elegance and details obsession

I’ve had the pleasure to see the work of Muse at personal events and friends’ events where expectations are always exceeded with the creativity, elegance and details obsession. The team is very approachable and genuine so trust is easily built. Thank you for all that you do! The best by far. -Angela Halawi

Tips for Picking the Best Event Planner for the Job 

Since there are a lot of great event organizers to choose from, picking just one can be hard. This is why we listed some tips to find the best one fit for your needs. 

  1. Know exactly what your expectations are. 

Knowing your exact specifications and your vision for the event can move things along much faster than if you start from scratch with your organizer. Settle the details first before meeting with your event organizer for a much smoother flow. 

  1. Check their expertise and level of experience. 

Doing your background research pays off. Look into the event planners’ efficiency and expertise by checking their portfolio and previous events. 

This will give you an idea how they’ll handle your particular project or event. Note that each event organizer has a forte, so make sure to plan around that. 

  1. Ask for a quotation. 

Settle on a budget first. Once you have that down pat, you can ask your top choices for a quotation. 

From there, you can determine which one will give you the most value for your money. 

  1. Get some referrals and read reviews. 

More than talent, you also need to know how they treat their clients. Reading reviews can help supply that information. 

Referrals are a great help too if you’re in a pinch. What your trusted friends and colleagues experienced can give you insight into their efficiency, service, and attitude.
