EIC recognized for its sponsorship and support in the success of Dubai’s 42nd National Day celebration
Parking & Transportation Energy International Corporation joined in the festivities at the official UAE National Day celebrations held on December 2, 2013 at the Burj Park at Downtown Burj Dubai.
Energy International Corporation’s Parking & Transportation division joined with the RTA Marine to sponsor this year’s event, sponsoring the wrapping of the Dubai’s fleet of water ferries in a festive display of the emirate’s flag and portraits of the distinguished rulers. The Parking & Transportation division was awarded a certificate recognizing EIC’s effective contribution to making the National Day celebration a success.
The certificate was accepted by Hussein Farran, Business Development Manager for EIC Parking & Transportation at a gathering for contractors and suppliers hosted by the RTA Marine following the event.
“EIC is involved with RTA Marine through our implementation and continued long term maintenance of the Automated Fare Collection System (AFC),” said Farran. “The RTA often reaches out to their strategic partners to sponsor their events. We were contacted by the Marine Transport Department to sponsor the wrapping of the ferries for the National Day.”
As sole provider of land public transport, the RTA played a major role in the event, transporting festival goers around the city on buses, taxis, metro rail, water taxis, ferries and water buses. Thousands of people – both nationals and expatriates – filled Burj Park in downtown Dubai, UAE to join in the official celebrations.
The Burj Khalifa was lit from top to bottom with the colors of the UAE National Flag, setting the stage for a downtown that was alive with children and adults dressed in colorful attire, displaying the rich cultural heritage and the unity and oneness of a proud nation.
