Lana Al Sakka, Managing Director of iJordan, stated, “Over the years and through our forward vision, iJordan has grown from a small three-man team to over 15 employees who are divided into multiple divisions, each of which specializes in an aspect of our core business. I am very proud to say that in the last 10 years iJordan has changed the world of event management in Jordan, raising standards and introducing a high level of expertise and professionalism with an unmatched resolve to create the unexpected.”
With 10 years under its belt, iJordan continues to boast impressive growth by expanding its divisions to include MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions), Special Events, Concerts & Festivals, CSR & Fundraising, iHost and the Wedding Planner.
The CSR & Fundraising department is responsible for creating an annual community awareness campaign, inter-office CSR initiatives and overseeing the iJordan sponsorship program; iHost is a specialized ushering division within iJordan; and the Wedding Planner is solely focused on and experienced in organizing weddings of all types from decorations to entertainment.
Strategically aligned to iJordan, iRelations is a local PR consultancy offering a comprehensive range of strategic communications solutions to Jordanian companies and multinationals operating in the Kingdom, and iAqaba was the first communications and event management company to establish a presence in Aqaba.
With a team comprised of highly creative, professional and experienced event organizers, logistics supervisors, financial planners and project management specialists, iJordan is not only renowned for its internal activities but also for creating, organizing and executing the most memorable events in the Kingdom.
In 2001, iJordan organized Jordan’s first international concert with Sting and Cheb Mami performing for over 5000 attendees. During that same year, Amr Diab performed for over 25,000 attendees, which is, until today, known as the biggest concert in Jordan. In 2002, Jordan experienced yet another internationally prominent artist with a concert for Shirley Bassey and in 2004 Bryan Adams rocked Amman by attracting more than 4,000 attendees.
Fairouz made an appearance in Jordan in 2004 for a concert that was sold out two weeks prior to the event, and in 2007 for a musical, a first of its kind event performed outside her home of Lebanon. What’s more, The Jordan Song Festival made its debut in 2001, with iJordan organizing the event for the next 5 years. Some of iJordan’s other well-known public events include the Star Academy Tour, Abu Tayeb Al Mutanabi and Hafleh A’a Gafleh, a concert that included four Arab artists such as Youri Mra’adi, Hisham Abbas and Elisa.
One of the most unforgettable public events executed by iJordan in collaboration with the Greater Amman Municipality was the ‘Centennial Parade’, which celebrated the centennial anniversary of the founding of the first municipal council in 1909. The parade, which reflected 100 years of Amman’s history, attracted 2000 participants and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
