Toronto – Luxury Corporate Events

Luxury Toronto Events

Toronto is a truly multicultural society where gourmet delights, music, art, and sporting events from around the works are accessible.

Our President and Founder, Anne Thornley-Brown, has lived in Toronto for over 20 years. Under her direction, we help companies add luxury touches to their executive retreats and team building and design unforgettable corporate events. We customize the approach based on the interests of your team.

Luxury Jamaica Events

Luxury Jamaica Events

Internationally, Jamaica is known for reggae but there is a lot more to Jamaica than reggae.

What better way is there for you to explore the country than to have a true Jamaican (our founder and owner) introduce you to some of her favourite places. We’ll custom design experiences that will give you an opportunity to explore Jamaica beyond the beaches for a truly memorable experience.

Executive Oasis International will plan and execute your luxury corporate events in Jamaica from start to finish. We have a number of unique experiences that are perfect for companies seeking memorable events to impress clients and express appreciation to top performers.

Dubai – Luxury Corporate Events

United Arab Emirates

Group Size: 6 – 100

Delivery Options:

Face-to-Face: 1 1/2 – 4 Days

In Dubai, we also have a number of luxury corporate events that are perfect for companies that need to impress clients and express appreciation to top performers.

  • Experience the thrill of world-class polo.
  • Bask in the luxury of silk carpets and soft cushions and savour gourmet cuisines during a luxury desert team building safari.
  • Camp out overnight or enjoy a sultan’s feast under the stars at a private oasis owned by a Sheikh.
  • Relax during a gentle drive on the dunes – it’s more environmentally friendly than dune bashing.

In Dubai, polo team building is available and horse riding can be incorporated into executive retreats.

If you book team building with us, we’ll help you select a venue where polo and equestrian activities are on-site or easily accessible.

Luxury Car Events

Delivery Options:

Face-to-Face: 1/2 – 1 Day

Places Available: Toronto, Montreal, Germany, Abu Dhabi, USA.

Pricing: High Budget.

Whether you want your guests to experience the show stopping excitement of an F1 event, the thrill of driving a luxury car like a BMW or a first hand view of what it takes to create a Ferrari at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, we’ll create an experience your team and clients will delight your guests.

With companies around the world putting incentive travel and foreign retreats on hold, luxury car events are a much more affordable incentive.

Whether you want to express appreciation to top tier clients or reward top performers, a day behind a luxury car is a guaranteed crowd pleaser at a fraction of the cost of foreign travel. Luxury car events are accessible in many cities and countries without getting on a plane (e.g Toronto, Montreal, USA, United Arab Emirates, Japan, Malaysia, Bahrain).

Combining our expert facilitation with the culinary expertise of professional chefs has been a winning combination delivering much more value than strictly recreational cooking.
