(MENAFN Press) Nexus Valentine's Polo Cup Deemed Huge Success and Highlights
Importance of Financial Planning and Protection
More than 200 UAE polo aficionados enjoyed a world-class display of horsemanship and sporting prowess at last weekend's final of the third annual Nexus Valentine's Cup.
Sponsored by Nexus Insurance Brokers, one of the region's largest independent brokers, the event saw a crowd of glitterati, socialites and families cheer on a cast of international and local polo stars at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club, with Dr. A Polo beating The Vikings 7-5 to emerge as champions.
Mahmoud Nodjoumi, founder and CEO of event sponsor Nexus Insurance Brokers, one of the region's largest independent brokers, presented the 2012 Nexus Valentine's Cup to the winning team, which also received prizes from Glam Rock Watches, a celebrity favourite recently launched in Dubai and available at Damas Exclusives.
"The tournament has seen two days of fantastic polo with all the players showing world-class skills in a tightly-contested match which culminated in today's gripping final," said Nodjoumi.
"Nexus Insurance Brokers is delighted to be the on-going sponsor for the event because of the link between financial protection and relationships. Valentine's Day is all about love and caring. What better way to show you care than putting sound financial plans in place for whatever your future holds."
Following the event's finale, a VIP dinner was held for specially invited guests and the polo players.
As in previous years, the event generated awareness for Al Noor Training Centre, a non-profit organisation proudly supported by Nexus Insurance Brokers that provides individuals with special needs, regardless of background, with professional training and care in order to realize their potential and better integrate into the wider community. Nexus Insurance Brokers provided a space to display handcrafted items created by the students as part of their training programme
"We were honoured to host the prestigious Nexus Valentine's Polo Cup for the third consecutive year," said Jurgen Baumhoff, Chief Operating Officer at Emaar Hospitality Group.
"Each year we make an added effort to provide exceptional services and ensure that our guests have an enjoyable experience."
