Short Bio Agnelo Fernandes - Abu Dhabi

I started my career in hospitality in Goa, India where I first experienced that my passion lies with the travel industry.

I am a goal oriented professional who thrives on developing new business opportunities and deepening existing business relationships.

Prior to starting the company, I managed very successfully, for a large number of years, a leading DMC in Dubai.

With 25 years of experience in the travel industry, I founded 1001 Events in 2004. My success as an entrepreneur continued with the expansion of the company, opening the branch office in Muscat, Oman and more recently with the expansion into Abu Dhabi office, in February 2014.

What makes Abu Dhabi such a great destination

Why Abu Dhabi

Money is no object in Abu Dhabi, our city wants to become a magnet for travel and is well on its way to do just that. No expenses are spared to develop Abu Dhabi to a traveler's paradise.

Opulent hotels like the famous Emirates Palace, sumptuous restaurants, its own Louvre and Guggenheim museums (both near completion - but they already look amazing), Ferrari world, its own desert, and still the traditions continue as well. For instance you can visit the local camel market, Bateen Shipyard where boats are still built according to age old customs, Heritage Village, Iranian Souk in traditional Arab style and Futaisi Island with its important archaeological sites.

With so many highlights to chose from,  our Abu Dhabi team of 1001 events, would be delighted to assist to make a fabulous and intriguing program.
