I have just finished a month-long project in Dubai, working on the Celebration of Entrepreneurship event. The video above gives you a glimpse of the spirit of the two-day conference, but not the scale.
The tech set-up was huge, with live streaming of every session, and more than 2,500 people and almost 200 speakers. From the 14-year-old Kuwaiti iPhone app developer to some of the biggest CEOs in the Middle East / North Africa / South Asia region (and cricketer Imran Khan), it was a dynamic and exciting crowd. And it wasn’t just about creating a cool event – there were huge announcements of partnerships, investment and seed funds. All in all, a working adventure.
