awards-dubai-aibcThe AIBC Eurasia Awards for 2023 got the Dubai summit off to a good start tonight with an evening full of surprise wins, glittering entertainment, and a record breaking charitable auction. 

Hosted by AIBC’s own, Mark Borg, and Lilly Douse, and generously sponsored by Fastex, the Awards evening kicked things off with a round of awards, honouring everyone from Davinici for Crypto Influencer of the year to Aviatrix for NFT Community of the year. 

aibc awards-dubaiEntertainment from the Mirryari Dancers, a glittering, mirrored performance troupe, brought a thrilling laser light show to the stage, while renowned Maltese singer-songwriter Ozzy Lino welcomed guests to the pre-event networking drinks with memorable classics from the rock ‘n roll hall of fame. 

We’re also proud to also be supporting the SiGMA Foundation tonight – an initiative which through fundraising challenges such as the Kilimanjaro and Camino Challenge, as well as tonight’s auction, help raise capital and awareness to fuel a number of charitable missions – including recent projects which helped to build a school and physiotherapy building in Ethiopia.

The auction is backed by donations from leading international artists, including British artist Derek Mason, an artist with pieces currently hanging in the Burj Khalifa. 

aibc awards-dubai dancerAmbassador for SiGMA Foundation, Rick Goddard led an energetic round of bidding, with one winner saying that it was all about the kids, while another implored the audience to just enjoy life. 

Ayesha Mubarak Ali’s creative painting, Fluctuations in my Head, a piece of work which is part of the series ‘Shared Space- Cosmic Collisions’ was up first. It went for a respectable E 850 euro. It was followed by three pieces by Derek Mason, Parallel Beginnings, which went for E 700, Your move – based on a the knight chess piece, which sold for E 400, and Roots of Success, for E 550. 

The One of a kind Baja Custom Tele Relic Guitar – The Eagles Long Run Edition, from artist Tommy Zegan inspired a fervent bidding war – eventually going for E 1800, while My lady in Blue from the DC comic collection brought in E 4200.
