Eye on Dubai: Fact and Fantasy

Friday 11 March, 11.30am-12.30pm

Al Ras 3, InterContinental

“I want Dubai to be a place where everybody from all over the world meets each other” – Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Dubai is a city that is much talked-about but often poorly understood – a city that over the last few decades has become a centre of trade and tourism. Our panel of Dubai experts – Emirati, expatriate and observer – talks about the ever-growing mythology of the city and seeks to separate fact from fantasy in realms as diverse as government, business leadership, culture, and more.

Annabel Kantaria is a longtime resident of Dubai, the author of the Telegraph’s Expat blog and frequent commentator on life in Dubai.

Afshin Molavi is a global geo-political and geo-economic analyst, the author of the National Geographic cover story Sudden City and an expert on the risks and opportunities Dubai faces.
