What We Have Done

élan is an international event design & management company founded by Dee Thomsen in London in 1999. élan opened its Dubai office in 2009 and quickly established itself as a market leader, bringing exceptional international expertise to event management across the Middle East.

Over the past 16 years élan has created phenomenal worldwide events; from Las Vegas & Iceland to Monaco & Shanghai, with clients ranging from banks to fashion houses, retailers and multi nationals. To further strengthen its global position and widen their client offering, élan joined forces with Dubai based TPG design & media in 2015 to become TPG events by élan.

Dee continues to lead the new company, where élan's mission to turn a client's vision into something totally unique & memorable beyond all expectations, remains steadfastly true to TPG events by élan.

Outstanding creative design & extensive event management knowledge, ensures unequalled concepts and meticulous planning for each and every event. The new team is totally passionate about events, being involved from the first draft to the final de-brief with tremendous enthusiasm and finite attention to detail.
