Dave Rahaman is an Entrepreneur, Marketing Professional and Printer. He studied psychology and philosophy at Huron College (UWO) and economics at York University. Post university he returned to his home land, Trinidad where he worked at the family business in printing and publishing. He became involved in local politics as a Campaign Manager then national politics as a Media Rep. for the ruling NAR party. This led to an appointment with the National Carnival Commission to work setting up and running events for the Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. Upon his return to Canada three years later he opened a printing company in Toronto named Litho Edge.
Litho Edge grew to over 200 clients including Norwich Union and Adobe Computers. Later he transformed it into a boutique marketing company, changing the name to Splurge Marketing which provided collateral and trade show support to a limited number of clients. The A-list of clients grew to include Apple Computers, Microsoft, Symantec, AIG, Marsh & McLennan, BEIS, Dunn and Bradstreet and Ogilvy and Mather. In 2001, working in collaboration with Carlson Marketing M&E the largest destination management company in the world Dave changed the focus to event marketing. This partnership resulted in the opportunity to handle events for companies such as British Petroleum, Avon, Comcast, Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services, Royal Dutch Shell, TJ Max and even the Bank of Nigeria.
In 2004 Dave was hired as the Marketing Manager for Caribana. In this position he developed new revenue streams, made non-exclusive license agreements with Liz Clairborne and Roots, and signed an external supplier to a merchandise contract. All of his efforts saw the festival collect 60% of the wireless fees generated by all debit and credit transactions at festival locations and was part of the team that renegotiated the new $1.5 million media sponsorship.
His success in this role led to an association with Caribana that has lasted almost ten years through the three different Administrations of the festival. It cemented his reputation as an expert in this niche area of Destination Marketing.
In 2013 Dave was asked to come to the Bahamas to assist in the development of the plans for the new Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival. Subsequent to that offer he was presented with the opportunity to take over a Legendary restaurant in the Bahamas called Travellers Rest. In an about face he is now working on the beach following his Happy In Pursuit mantra at his new adventure known as Travellers West.
