GIBTM Opening

First thing that Organizer of GIBTMReed Travel Exhibitions” will learn from Abu Dhabi experience that you never plan Education session or seminar or anything that have tight time constraints in the early morning, especially the opening day while there is an official ceremony and VIP and government official are coming for the opening.
So I already made big X over the first educational session that was from 9 am to 10 pm and decided to give the second session a try which was form 10 am to 11am
But unsurprised it is cancelled because the official opening of the exhibition did not take place yet and they shifted the whole two sessions to the next day
Moral of the story: Learn from Mistakes of Others, and again I have to find some time tomorrow morning.

GIBTM - Gulf Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition

I know it is long time a way from blogging almost one year , but it seem that the case for many UAE bloggers some of them have been blogging for more than a year but all of a sudden they jammed , some one should study this trend so we can understand why?
However I always wanted to resume writing but as usual work and family are keeping me busy. Now GIBTM is the best occasion to restart writing in here GIBTM is very new exhibition in Abu Dhabi and the whole gulf area even the whole middle east it is one of the Reed Travel Exhibitions portfolio of meetings and incentives events.
As far as I know there is only 3 exhibitions of it is kind that organized by reed travel Exhibitions, one in Barcelona, Spain the other in Beijing, china and the third one is in Melbourne, Australia , and now in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The most important feature to me about this Exhibition is that it combine educational seminars in the filed of meetings and exhibition industry and at the same time it is a show for the events venues, meeting planner and travel services around the world, I was always waiting for a similar event to happen close to me to be able to attend it and now they came to my town no way I am going to miss it, I am really looking forward for The Professional Education Seminars
GIBTM , taking place at the ADNEC exhibition centre in Abu Dhabi, from 13-15 March 2007.
