Since 1995, TGP – then known by our full name "Top Gear Promotions" – has grown from an ambitious startup into the region’s leading design and production company focusing on exhibitions, events, interiors, graphics and audio visual.
Over the past two decades we have had the privilege of working with some of the world’s biggest names across various industry sectors – undertaking every project in line with our timeless ethos: that quality and professionalism should never be compromised.
We believe our ability to deliver on this ethos is wholly dependent on the teams we put in place to achieve it. That is why we carefully hand-pick every member of our team and ensure that each and every one of them shares the passion, drive, ability – and most of all the vision – that drives our efforts across all client engagements.
To provide exceptional work you must work in exceptional surroundings. And both our Dubai and Abu Dhabi offices fit the bill.
In Dubai, our state-of-the-art office complex is just minutes away from the Dubai World Trade Center in the heart of the city. With views stretching out to the Arabian Gulf, it’s impossible not to be inspired.
We also inhabit a vast 80,000 square foot warehouse across the city in Dubai Investment Park, ideally located just off of Sheikh Zayed Road.
Our work represents our determination and standards. We hand pick every member of our team, experts in their field, who understand the markets they operate in and thrive on delivering excellence.
Upon completing school at age 17, Alex Maddock had one desire, and that was to work in the city of London. By 19, he had passed the Financial Intermediaries Members & Brokers Regulatory Association exam to become one of its youngest members to trade financial instruments. Having weathered the 1987 Black Monday crash, however, Alex became disillusioned with London life and in 1990 decided to head overseas. His first port of call was Melbourne, Australia, where he quickly established himself in the advertising scene. But it wouldn’t be long before destiny and an entrepreneurial drive would land him in Dubai and the eventual founding of TGP – now the leading events solutions company in the region. Twenty years on, it feels as though the journey is still just beginning.
Having studied Civil Engineering at the United Kingdom’s North East Surrey College of Technology, Omar began his career as a property developer in the mid-1980s – specialising in high-end homes throughout West London. Omar’s career changed direction in 1991 when he moved to the UAE to take a business development position in the sales department of EMA Lubricants - a joint-venture with Exxon Mobil. Just four years later in 1995, Omar launched his own business – Top Gear Promotions LLC – with his current business partner Alexander Maddock. Fast-forward to 2017 and that business – now known simply as TGP – is the region’s foremost exhibitions and events solution provider, having executed over 2000 successfully delivered projects locally, regionally and internationally.
