MAPEI Construction Chemicals Tees Up for Golf Day with Adrián Otaegui

November 23, 2021

MAPEI Construction Chemicals LLC, the fully owned subsidiary of MAPEI Group, the world’s leading manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for the construction industry, hosted an exclusive Golf Day with Spanish professional golfer and three-time European Tour winner, Adrian Otaegui at Jumeirah Golf Estates. Attendees started the day with a Shotgun Start on Jumeirah Golf Estates’ Fire Course, enjoying a spirited round of golf with the Spanish pro.

Commenting on the event, Adrian Otaegui said, “I am delighted to be bringing MAPEI Construction into my world - the world of golf. MAPEI is famed for being the glue that puts things together in the world of construction and I am excited to have been the glue in ensuring MAPEI customers had a great experience on the day.”

Stefano Iannacone, Director for Middle East and Africa, MAPEI Group, said: “We are proud to host this event with Adrian and to further solidify our contribution to the sport in the region. Over the past few years there has been a passionate resurgence in fitness and sports activities in the Middle East as greater importance is placed on mental health and physical wellbeing, leading to a variety of sporting projects in the region. The Dubai Fitness 30x30 Challenge is a brilliant example of these initiatives in the country. Hosting a Golf day will provide attendees with a wellbeing activity while building long lasting relationships with MAPEI. The UAE Vision 2030 and Dubai Urban Master Plans have incorporated this forward thinking approach in upcoming infrastructure projects which provides an equal balance of commercial and recreational activities and will drive the economy further. At MAPEI, contributing to infrastructure that supports the community is a key focus and we look forward to building many more sporting facilities across the region.”

MAPEI has built up a wide range of experience and developed technology solutions for all types of sports surfaces in the Middle East, and has become a point of reference for architects, designers and engineers. MAPEI’s recent line of resins for sports surfaces are at the forefront of its versatility and technical/performance efficiency, alongside its aesthetic qualities. This product line is under constant development and is ideal, particularly for acrylic resin or removable tennis courts, floors for indoor gymnasiums, cycle lanes and multi-purpose sports surfaces in general such as for basketball, volleyball and more.

The Italian building products manufacturer has cemented its presence for sports structures in the region, growing its portfolio by various exemplary projects, including Ghadan 21 in Abu Dhabi. MAPECOAT TNS PRIMER EPW and MAPECOAT TNS RACETRACK were used for this distinctly designed urban project to withstand both vehicular & foot traffic, while providing the desired aesthetical finish in line with Abu Dhabi’s city-wide public art program for the community’s development. The MAPECOAT TNS PROFESSIONAL, a multi-layered system made from acrylic resin in water dispersion for professional indoor and outdoor tennis courts, was used for Shagrafah Ladies Park in Sharjah, Safa 1 & 2 park court refurbishment and in urban areas of Dubai South.

MAPEI has a proud history of sport sponsorship and is currently owner sponsors for “Serie A Sassuolo FC” and the main sponsor for the UCI Road World Cycling Championships.
