Sushi Networking: New Concept Being Exported Globally From South Africa

By Zehra Fattah

A unique idea generated in South Africa by Digital Media Specialist Marianna Boguslavsky, brought together a group of professionals from different business sectors, sharing not only an evening in a highly classy atmosphere but also many creative ideas to network and support each others business ventures.

The event which this time took place at the Salmontini restaurant at the Mall of Emirates in Dubai was a great success for all its participants.

Having each of our names printed individually on tasteful table stands and receiving a number of concessionary and promotional gifts brought and shared by the guests, such as complimentary horse riding classes, facials as well as a subscription for fitness sessions was just the beginning of an evening filled with “Wow- Effects”.

A classy setting with a breathtaking view of Ski Dubai, accompanied by having a delicious 3 course meal served by the restaurants highly professional and friendly staff was certainly a subject that had to be tweeted by all of us instantly to recommend this gem which I am personally really delighted to have found.

Founder and organizer of this unique event, Marianna made sure that the guests were paired according to their profession and having witnessed the various business connections that have been created during this lovely get together was an inspiration for me to recommend this great networking concept as well as the discovery of this very classy venue which doesn’t only offer a wide variety of Japanese delicacies but also the excellent and number one service that with it’s attention to detail made it truly a pleasure having spent an evening on of a kind.

Thanks to Marianna and the entire Salmontini Team for this great experience!
