AUS students attend Host Cities Summit in Dubai
AUS students attended the fourth edition of the Host Cities Summit held by Emirates Airlines at Fairmont the Palm, Dubai, on November 19. Host Cities is the largest industry summit held in the Middle East. The theme this year was "Embracing Future Events," and it explored how the hosting strategies of cities today will shape the cities of tomorrow.
"We attended the second day of Host Cities Summit and the panels were highly interactive," said Mahnoor Mehmood, a senior student majoring in accounting. "The discussions were sports-related and my favorite panel was on 'Women in Sport.' We also had the opportunity to network with the panelists and various other important people to discuss issues. It was a great experience overall," she added.
"This was a good opportunity for our students to meet and network with individuals who work on strategies to best serve our communities. Students were inspired by many of the speakers at the summit and learned how determination is the key to success," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
The trip was organized by the Office of Student Affairs.
