A special 10th anniversary celebration took place at this year’s recent Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity as delegates grouped together to break the Guinness World Records title for the Most people contributing to a rubber stamp image, with an amazing 348 participants taking part.
The striking image measured 2 m x 3 m and depicted a colourful Lynx cat - representing the festival’s name and following it's creative theme.
The event, which took place a couple of weeks ago at Madinat Jumeirah Resort in Dubai, aimed to bring together a creative community from countries all over the globe and inspire guests with an incredible line-up of speakers.
Official Guinness World Records adjudicator Samer Khallouf was on hand to present a certificate once the record was counted and verified.
One of the speakers at the event was Guinness World Records SVP EMEA & APAC Nadine Causey, who talked about what inspires companies and individuals to set records, and also shared some record-breaking success stories from the region.
Nadine (pictured below) said: “In recent years MENA has become the fastest growing group of Guinness World Records title holders in the world. From incredible personal achievements to awe-inspiring feats of engineering and huge celebrations of national pride and culture, MENA has taken record breaking to its heart and I can’t think of a better place to share these inspiring stories than Dubai Lynx.”
The Dubai Lynx visitors broke the previous record of 275 which was achieved by visitors to the Ripley Entertainment/Premier Rides hospitality suite at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Attractions Expo at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA in November 2013.
