An iconic event venue delivered in record time

As the world's largest camel sporting event ever held, the Crown Prince Camel Festival played host to 11,000 camels participating in 787 rounds, competing for over $14 million of prizes for camel attractiveness, speed and breeding.

We built the entire temporary structure and event overlay in record time, taking only eight days to deliver a fully functional, high-quality event space in the Taif desert. Losberger De Boer erected the double-decker Delta structure and delivered a 5-metre outdoor spectator balcony, so attendees had an unrivalled visitor experience and didn't have to miss out on any of the camel racing action.

Bigger is better

The event organizer was awarded a Guinness World Record for successfully staging the largest event of its type. During the 42-day event, Losberger De Boer's structure welcomed dignitaries from across the Middle East region. We were proud to play our part in the success of such an iconic event in collaboration with a forward-thinking client.

Featuring cultural, sports and entertainment activities as well as educational workshops for camel owners and visitors, the festival supported the organizer's ambitious aims to continue showcasing and boosting the rich camel-racing heritage in Saudi Arabia and across the Gulf region as the country modernizes. The festival comprised four phases, with highlights including camels reaching up to 40 kilometres per hour at top speeds in races, creating an electrifying atmosphere for spectators.

"When selecting a partner to provide the event overlay and temporary infrastructure for our record-breaking camel festival, it was essential we choose an organization who understood our vision and could deliver an event space that would match how special the event would be.”
- Rabih Yehya | General Manager at Active Partners
