AQUAFUN Awarded the GMBF Global Business  Excellence Award

Dubai, UAE: AquaFun was awarded the Business Excellence Award at The Gulf  Maharashtra Business Forum (GMBF) Global, MAHABIZ 2024 event, held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Jawahar Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa  in Dubai last month.


Ahmed Ben Chaibah, Founder and CEO of AquaFun, received the award at  the premier event which welcomed many industry leaders and more than 700  delegates.

This award is a testament to AquaFun’s success as an international player  and a recognition of Ben Chaibah’s commitment to excellence, innovation  and growth.


Commenting on the event and the award, Ben Chaibah said: “it’s an honor to  be a part of the GMBF Mahabiz 2024 forum and a privilege to receive the  excellence award. These award ceremonies fuel entrepreneurs like myself to  do more. It motivates our team at AquaFun to continue to innovate knowing  that all their hard-work hasn’t gone unnoticed.”

Held after the recent conclusion of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership  Agreement (CEPA) between India and the UAE, further amplifies the  significance of MAHABIZ 2024.

The UAE being a melting pot for entrepreneurs from all over the world, makes  it ideally positioned to showcase business excellence and creates ample  opportunities for collaborations given the conducive environment for business  exchange and professional growth created by the country’s leadership. This  aligns strongly with GMBF Global’s commitment to empowering the global  business community.

Aimed at fostering funding opportunities, facilitating growth and promoting  collaboration among entrepreneurs in the UAE and Maharashtra region of  India, the event offered opportunities for collaboration and trade between the  two nations.

Emirati entrepreneurs such as Ben Chaibah committed to creating  transformative impact and demonstrating exceptional leadership are great  examples of what the UAE has to offer. We are sure to see more and more

international organizations recognizing AquaFun’s achievements and learning  from this success story.
