Maestra was founded in Dubai with the goal of providing tech solutions to luxury brands. Since then, the company has expanded to different regions and has become a multi-disciplined supplier, offering full-turnkey services to creative agencies across the Middle East.
Behind Maestra is the story of its founder, Thomas Clements. The Managing Director of Maestra has had a passion for the event industry since a very young age and founded Maestra at only 23. Since then, he has expanded the company into different regions and capabilities, including premium fabrication, scenic build, and modular structures. Over the past three years, the production facility has expanded 20-fold to 45,000 square feet and has been equipped with high-end machinery to handle larger projects and deliver efficiently during the busy season. Recently, the company opened an additional workshop in Riyadh, offering additional flexibility to build projects in Saudi Arabia and surrounding countries.
Our manufacturing facilities located in Dubai and Riyadh cover a staggering 100,000 square feet, allowing to deliver extended production capabilities during the busy season. Our machinery runs 24/7, with double-headed CNC machines that cut large sheets quickly. Our workshop also include speedy spray painting booths that deliver exceptional quality.
Our team comprises skilled and experienced professionals who are passionate about what they do. Our project managers are all highly experienced and have worked on major projects in the region, including EXPO 2020, the FIFA World Cup, and Neom. With team members from various nationalities, we can better understand the expectations of all our clients, easing the communication process and delivering higher satisfaction.
The goal was clear: to reduce the environmental impact of the event while maintaining the design and experience created by Urban Events, an event planning agency. Through close collaboration and innovative solutions, we achieved a waste diversion rate of nearly 90%, setting a new sustainability standard in event fabrication.
As Maestra, we made a significant contribution to the inaugural decarbonisation technology conference, UAEClimateTech, hosted by the UAE Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology, ADNOC, and Masdar. For this event, our team installed twelve of our Showblock by Maestra temporary structures. These structures were used to create the registration and reception area and were pre-fitted with branding elements.
Emirates Palace Hotel, a renowned beachfront resort in Abu Dhabi, recently underwent a rebranding to become Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental. To mark this momentous occasion, the palace was transformed with exquisite golden decor, reflecting its opulence and grandeur. Collaborating with Gosha Buro, a renowned creative studio, we provided comprehensive custom event fabrication services.
