Why the Emirates?
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the world’s fastest-growing destinations for both business and leisure visitors. This is hardly surprising since geographically, economically and culturally, it is in a unique strategic position between East and West. The country attracts millions to major exhibitions at its many world-class exhibition centers, amongst others, bring many visitors to educational experiences as well. For all UAE’s futuristic appeal and abundance of western entertainments – a sleek metro that zips through the sky, sumptuous shopping malls, an indoor ski park, and countless bars – there is just as much fun to be had in the simple pleasures of “the Orient”: haggling for gold and frankincense in the bustling souqs, savouring the sunset from the back of a camel.
When: November 10-12, 2016
Abu Dhabi is hot, dry and windy year round, but the cooler November temperatures of around 18°C to 31°C mean there’s very little humidity. There’s also very little rainfall, just 0.2 inches expected over the entire month. Weather-wise, November is considered one of the best times to visit Dubai.
Conference Venue & Lodging: NYU Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island Campus
The official hosting venues of CWMUN Emirates is the New York University in Abu Dhabi and its amazing campus. NYU Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island Campus is a pedestrian campus that combines traditional and modern architectural elements to reflect the University’s three identities: Abu Dhabi, New York, and the world. Designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects PC, the campus covers nearly 40 acres and promotes interaction between living and learning, research and teaching, and the disciplines, as well as faculty, students, and staff. The arrangement of offices, the visibility across large areas and between indoors and outdoors, the connections between buildings so that none stand alone, the outdoor gathering spaces, and the on-campus living are among the ways the campus’ design encourages this interaction.
Delegate rooms are equipped with every basic item students might need for a quite comfortable life provided by the University. The rooms are spacious, new, and have their own bathroom. Each delegate will have bed, desk with chair, and a wardrobe with a chest of drawers contained within it furnished in their room. For the respect and safety of your students, participants will be lodged in separate boys and girls buildings.
