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 12-14, 2021
Dubai is hot, dry and windy year round, but the cooler 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: TBD
Since its very first edition, the CWMUN Emirates program has always been organized at the NYU Abu Dhabi Campus. The 2021 EXPO edition will be hosted entirely in Dubai.
