Venue: Dubai
Dubai is both a dynamic international business centre and a laid-back 
tourist escape; a city where the sophistication of the 21st century walks 
hand in hand with the simplicity of a bygone era; a cosmopolitan society 
with an international lifestyle combining the comfort and convenience of the 
Western world with the unique charm and hospitality of Arabia.
 From the timeless tranquility of the desert to the lively bustle of the 
souk, Dubai offers a kaleidoscope of attractions for visitors. The emirate 
embraces a wide variety of scenery in a very small area. In a single day, 
you can experience everything from rugged mountains and awe-inspiring sand 
dunes to sandy beaches and lush green parks, from dusty villages to 
luxurious residential districts and from ancient houses with wind towers to 
ultra-modern shopping malls. For more information about Dubai see:
