I was fortunate enough to have been invited to join a friend to attend the Forbes Global CEO Conference Summit in Dubai. I was not only excited by the opportunity to attend the conference and rub shoulders with world-wide CEOs, tycoons, entrepreneurs, up-and-comers, capitalists and thought leaders, but more so to finally discover what had laid outside those mysterious walls of Dubai International Airport.
Let’s just say Dubai exceeded every expectation I had, a visually stunning man-made city of opulence hiding within a world of unconventional beauty. The weather, the sand, the sun and every inch of this city was nothing but visually enticing. Not to mention our hotel, Al Qsar which resembled a royal summer residence, setting the scene for such a luxurious stay, with picturesque views overlooking the Madinat Jumeriah, Arabic restaurants with delicious traditional cuisine on the menus and aqua blue waters just steps way from our apartment made for such an amazing trip!
