Ras Al Khaimah hosting Tourism Conference

Ras Al Khaimah will be hosting a two-day conference which will focus on the investment opportunities unfolding in the tourism destinations of the Middle East.

The 'Ras Al Khaimah Conference 2007', to be held from February 12 to 13 at the Hilton Ras Al Khaimah, is being organised by the business weekly Meed in association with the Investment & Development Office (IDO) of Ras Al Khaimah.

Around 175 policy-makers, investors, consultants, chief executives and facilitators from a wide spectrum of businesses world over are expected to attend the conference, which is also supported by Amana, CTC, Metito, Rasmala Investments and Saraya Islands.

Crown Prince and deputy ruler of Ras Al Khaimah Shaikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, under whose patronage the conference is being held, will deliver the keynote address outlining the vision that propels the rapid growth being witnessed by the emirate, according to the organisers.

Reflecting the vibrant investment scenario in the emirate and the spurt of interest in its ambitious development drive among regional and international businesses, the conference will focus on the theme of 'Major New Project Opportunities in Ras Al Khaimah', said a senior official.

The seven sessions following the keynote address will be dedicated to presentations and discussions on the various aspects of business and investment; tourism; education and healthcare; real estate; port, logistics and free zones; manufacturing; and energy and petrochemicals. A panel of 30 high profile investors and senior business leaders will lead these sessions.

Meed conferences is providing their pre-event networking facility to delegates. This will help delegates arrange for business meetings and network with other participants well in advance.

Senior executives from various local and international establishments like RAK Properties, Al Mal Capital, Rasmala Investments, Hilton International, Rotana Hotels, Abraaj Capital, AC Nielsen, Al Tamimi & Company, EDAW Australia, George Mason University, KGL Ports International, RAK Airways, RAK Ceramics, RAKGAS, Standard Chartered Bank, Tufts University, Methodist International and Khoie Group have confirmed their representation at the Conference.
